Question Restore an earlier state?

Is there a way to remove an earlier step while maintaining all the other changes that took place afterward, e.g. I cropped the image (did not hide, but deleted), did a bunch of retouching steps after and then decided I would prefer to remove the crop. I can of course start over but wondering if there is a simple method to remove the crop?

Can the crop be set to only hide as the default?

thx,

doug

Re: Restore an earlier state?

If you have selected the option "Allow Non-Linear History" then you can delete a single state in the History list instead of everything that comes after that state. If you have not enabled that option then you do not have an easy way to restore the cropped section.

Depends on if you change the pixels when you cropped the image. If you did a free form crop you might be able to copy merge your progress. Then paste it as a new layer on the original and line it up. I do this by changing the opasity a bit and blending mode to multiply. Just remember by doing this you will loose all of your prevoius work from the croped image, If you have done any color corection to the picture after the crop it will show as well.

Dont know why i dint think of this the first time. Increase the canvas size to the size of the picture before the crop. Then you will beable to insert the origanl picture back in as a layer behind what you have done.. Without loosing any steps. You can undo a crops after its done but you cant hide it and turn it off and on. I usaly save my crop for last just in case. Been in your shoes before.

Yes, if you check the Hide button, the tool will stay that way until you toggle it off.
