Using Non-Linear History in Photoshop


The History panel within Photoshop is something most users have made us of in their workflows. One of the most common things I see happen with beginners is accidentally erasing History Steps (aka History States). This generally happens when someone clicks a Snapshot not realizing that can erase History, or more often someone chooses a previous step and does something new. If you add non-linear history to your workflow that’s a quick way to keep as much of your history as you’ve set in your preferences. Enjoy!

    I’ve been moaning about not being able to do this for ages because, well, because it now seems I was to stupid to check for it!

    Why on earth isn’t this on by default? *sobs*

    AJ – you sir, are a god. Tippy, you too. Cheers!
