One of the great things about working in the Expert edit mode is that it's so…easy to change your mind about the edits that you're applying to a photo.…The most direct way to change your mind is to use the Undo and Redo features,…which are located down here in the taskbar.…Right now neither Undo or Redo is available, because I haven't done anything to this image.…So let me go ahead and do something.…I'm going to try to desaturate the intense red color in the parrot's eye.…I select the Sponge Tool here in the toolbar. Down in the tool options bar you…can see that by default this tool is set to Desaturate.…
I'll move my cursor over the image, and I'm just going to click-and-drag over the…eye to take a little bit of the intense color out of the eye.…Now let's say I really don't like that;…I want to undo what I've done with the Sponge tool.…I'll come to the taskbar and now the Undo button is available.…So I'll click Undo, and I get this little label telling me that I'm undoing the…Sponge Tool, and I'm back to where I started.…
