Ever just feel like starting over with an edit? It doesn’t happen often, but it does happen. When you do feel like that, there are three ways you can do all your work:
- Close the image without saving it and the work you’ve done will be gone.
- Go to the History panel (Undo History panel in PSE 10-6) and scroll back to the top of the list and click on the top item which is your file. This gets rid of all the steps you’ve made. You can find your History/Undo History panel by going to Windows, then clicking on that choice.
- Use the Reset action I’m providing today.
The action is free and works in Photoshop CS and Photoshop Elements. When you click to apply it, it will take your image back to it’s original state IF you have not saved the edit at some point. If you have saved it, with will not reset.
This is not a “must have” action, but one that can come in handy and save a bit of time for you. Also, if you apply it and then wish to undo that, press ‘control’ and ‘z’ (or ‘command’ and ‘z’ on a Mac).
