Quick Tips

Action Insurance Policy

Have you ever written an action, and after it’s done, you wish you hadn’t run it in the first place? Maybe the effect just doesn’t look right on the image, or there’s a mistake or missing step in your action? Well, here’s a tip that will help you, not just when you’re testing your action, but even after you’ve perfected it. Bring up the Actions palette (found under the Window menu), click on the Create New Action icon, and once you’re recording, make the first step of your action creating a snapshot. To do this, just open the History palette (under the Window menu) and click on the Create New Snapshot icon at the bottom of the palette. That way, if after the action runs, you don’t like the results, you can just click on the saved snapshot in the History palette, and the image will instantly return to how it looked when you opened it.
