30 Days of Photoshop – Day 29

The History Panel (Not boring!)

For most of us, when we make mistakes in Photoshop, we simply hit the UNDO shortcut keys.

But there is a better way, a much better way.

Using the History panel we can return to any point in our editing process, travelling backwards and forwards in time to precisely the point we’re looking for.

And that means, that if you’re going back ten steps of editing, you don’t have to hit UNDO ten times! You just click once… and you’re there!

The history panel is one of the most useful workflow-enhancing tools in Photoshop. Once you start using it, you’ll never go back to UNDO-ing any more.
