Combining the History Brush with a History State

When Adobe created History, they advertised the fact that Photoshop now had more than one undo. Multiple undos are a great thing, however if all you use the History palette for is to correct your mistakes, you're missing the whole idea of the History palette. The History palette does not stand by itself. It's linked to the History brush. The History brush receives its information from a selected state or snapshot. For example, the History palette holds a snapshot of the way the image looked when first opened, and by default the History brush is linked to that snapshot. Think of the History brush as a photo restoration tool that always remembers the original state of the image. As you work on a document you will make changes. If during the current work session, you wish to restore the document back to its original (first opened) state, the History brush is your tool. The History brush is not just for correcting mistakes, but also for creating awesome special effects. All you need is a bit of imagination and a couple of additional snapshots.
