Part 7. Drawing and Painting with Color > Task 4 How to Use the History Brush

Task 4 How to Use the History Brush

The History Brush enables you to selectively paint an iteration of an image from a previous state, as displayed in the History palette. Recall that, as you work on an image, previous image states are recorded in the History palette. The History Brush lets you access these previous states as a source file, brushing them back into an image. The History palette stores only a limited number of states as specified in the General Preferences box (select Edit, Preferences, General). As you add states to the palette, you can convert a state to a snapshot to preserve that state. The basic rules of working with the History palette were outlined in Part 2, Task 2, “How to Undo with the History Palette.”

1. Select the History Brush Tool

With the image file you want to modify open onscreen, select the History Brush tool from the toolbox. Note that all history states are erased when a file is closed; for this task, be sure you are working with a file that has been modified from its original state since it was opened.
