Chapter 8. Organizing Items > Duplicate an Image for Editing

71. Duplicate an Image for Editing


When you edit an image using Photoshop Album, the program automatically creates a copy of the original file and then performs the edits on the copy. This organization keeps your original file safe from disastrous edits. This same process occurs if you launch a graphics editor such as Photoshop Elements from within Photoshop Album: Again, a copy of the original file is automatically created, and the edits are performed on the copy. The original image, by the way, is no longer displayed in the catalog—just the edited image. This keeps the catalog smaller and more organized, since the theory is that the catalog should contain only the images you want to use. The hard disk, however, contains both the original and the edited versions of the image, until you remove the original file permanently, as described in 70 Replace an Original Image with an Edited One.
