Video – Using History in Lightroom

This week’s video comes directly from a question I get all the time. It’s all about History. See… we have a History palette in Photoshop but Lightroom’s history is a little bit different (and cooler in some ways). First off, Lightroom saves everything! Even when you close the program down and open it back up – your history states are still there. You can always go back to any point in your editing of a photo to a previous history state and you don’t have to do a thing to make it all happen. This is simply the way that Lightroom works. So this week, I’ll take a look at the History panel, where it resides, and how to use it. We’ll even take a look at the Snapshot panel and see how we can use both panels together.
