Re: [photoshopgroup] saving history


although there is a "save History Log" option in the Preferences, this may not be what you are looking for.  It sounds like you want to be able to work on a file, save it, close it, then reopen it later with the same history states available.

PS does not save history states between saves.  The best thing that you can do in this case is to work in layers -- make a new layer for every edit, use lots of adjustment layers, etc.  Make your layer names descriptive, so you know what you did on that layer.  You can also save each major edit with a new file name, thus making it easier to go back to a previous state.

Hope that helps-- John

What about saving snapshots of your work at different stages? Then you can click back and view what was going on at that point. (I believe. I rarely use this feature).

I am hoping someone on this list can help me with a very frustrating problem. I make lots of changes to my graphics using tools and filters and I would like to save the history of those changes when I save the file. After saving and closing a file, I usually cannot remember exactly what I did to the image. So far, I have not found any way to do a save that will bring up my previous history list when I reopen the file after saving it. Is there any way to do this?
