Chapter 6. Working with the History Palette > Setting History Palette Options

Setting History Palette Options

Working with the History palette requires a firm understanding of how the palette functions, and what you can and cannot do with History. The History palette records your steps through a document. A step is defined as a specific action, such as creating a layer, or adding a brush stroke. Every time you perform an action, a step is recorded in the History palette. In addition, the History palette creates snapshots of the document. Snapshots are images of the current state of the document. Snapshots are used in conjunction with the History and Art History Brushes to create special effects.

Set Number of History States

Click the Edit (Win), or Photoshop (Mac) menu, point to Preferences, and then click General.

Enter a value from 0 to 1000 for the number of steps recorded in the History States box.

Click OK.
