Save and Save As States now Recorded in History Panel in Photoshop CC 2014

Adobe Photoshop

In Photoshop CC 2014, when you save a document (or Save As), the command will be  added as a state in the History panel in case you want to access it after making additional changes. Just remember, the number of history states (listed in the History panel) depend on a setting in your preferences (Preferences > Performance > History States). Depending on your preferences and the number of changes made to the file, the Save (or Save As) state might eventually “roll off the top” of the panel. If you need access to the “Saved” state – regardless of how many changes are made to the open document, select the fly out menu on the History panel, select History Options, and enable “Automatically Create New Snapshot When Saving”. The snapshot will remain available (regardless of the number of changes made), until the file is closed.

    yay! something I’ve requested got added! (I’m sure many others requested it too) been wanting to know this for ages. The old, did I save this before I resized it small for export to jpeg and then undid the resize question, is now solved!

    I hate this! Why didn’t you simply take a snape shot? This will only last as long as you don’t go past your history. And anyway, you have bad habits if you resize a file (Esp DOWN size a file) and don’t SAVE AS.

    That sounded harsher than I intended :/ I meant “snapshot” and you should always keep a copy of your high resolution file and Save As when you downsize it for other use.
