Controlling the Creative Process with Snapshots

The History palette contains more than just steps, it also holds snapshots. A History snapshot is an image of the document, as it exists at the time the snapshot was taken. The History palette can hold as many snapshots as needed, and they are not subject to the number of History States. That means they stay with the document throughout the creative process. By default, Photoshop takes a snapshot of the image when it first opens. This snapshot represents the original state of the image, before any adjustments or modifications are applied, and is identified with the file name of the image. It's a good idea to create a Snapshot every time you make a major change to the image. That way if you want to start all over, all you have to do is click on the snapshot, and Photoshop returns you to the moment in time the snapshot was created. It's like having your own personal time machine.
