Documenting Your Work
Did you know you can record every step of your work in Photoshop as a text file or even as Metadata that is attached to the file? In some professions, it is critical to document every step of your work. For instance, things like forensic imaging involve very detailed work and there is a risk of digital evidence being compromised. So documenting every step is crucial. However, there are those that aren’t necessarily working on something that critical. Maybe they want to record their process for reference or perhaps to improve their skills overall. Whatever the case, it’s really quite simple. Go to your Photoshop Preferences into the General category. At the bottom you’ll see the History Log. This allows you to have your History attached to your file as Metadata or as a separate text file. You can even do both. I personally used this sometimes when I am experimenting just in case I do something and don’t quite remember how I did it.
