Lesson 8. Painting and Editing > About the history painting tools

About the history painting tools

Two brush tools include the word history in their names, but their functions are quite distinct. Each has its unique advantages. One similarity between them, however, is that both can apply what are ordinarily layer- or image-level changes to a limited area of an image.

The History Brush tool can selectively restore areas of an image to a previous state without changing the subsequent work you’ve done in other areas of the image. It works in a way similar to the way the Clone Stamp and Healing Brush tools work. Brush strokes made with the History Brush tool change pixels in the image back to pixels as they were in the state or snapshot that you’ve designated in the History palette.
