Taking a snapshot

Because you are satisfied with the results of your healing the graffiti marks, now is a good time to take a snapshot. This will serve as a baseline for any future experimentation during this work session. (Remember that snapshots and history listings are discarded when you close a file.)

1.
Close the Navigator, Color, and Layer palette groups for this session—you won’t use them in this lesson—and use the space to expand the History palette so that you can see as many items as possible. If necessary, scroll to the bottom of the History palette so that you can see the last change you made to the image.

2.
With the most recent state in the History palette selected, click the New Snapshot button () at the bottom of the History palette to create a snapshot of the current state.

3.
Scroll to the top of the History palette. A new snapshot, Snapshot 1, appears at the top of the palette.

4.
Double-click the words Snapshot 1 and type Post-graffiti to rename the snapshot.

Note

You can also take snapshots of earlier phases of your current work session. To do this, scroll to that item in the History palette, select it, and click the New Snapshot button at the bottom of the palette. After you rename the snapshot, reselect the state at which you want to continue working.

5.
Make sure that either the Post-graffiti snapshot or the last state in the History list is selected in the History palette. Then, choose File > Save.
