Duplicating a History State in Another Document

Here's a tool to help you gain control over the creative process, and save you a lot of time and effort as well. The History palette lets you create new documents, based on a specific History step or snapshot. For example, you're working on a complicated image, and you want to isolate a portion of the image in another document. This will not only help you reduce the clutter, but working on a portion of the image in a separate document creates a document with a much smaller file size, and that will help Photoshop work faster.

Create Another Document

Select the History palette.

Click on the snapshot or History state you want to use for the new document.

Click the Create New Document From Current State button.

Photoshop creates a new document based on the selected snapshot or state. The new document's History palette contains one snapshot, and one state.

IMPORTANT Snapshots are not saved with the Photoshop document. When you reopen a document the History palette will display one snapshot of the current state of the image, and one History step.
