A very useful feature inside of Lightroom is the history. …If you've ever used Photoshop before, you'd be familiar with the History palette. …This remembers the different states and the different things you do to your image. …However, unlike the adjustment in Photoshop, this one doesn't take up any file size, and …it also remembers the settings after you close down Lightroom and reopen. …What's more than that, if you go to any image, it retains the history settings.…
For example, right now we're looking at this image here. …Let's have a look at another image we've adjusted. …If I open this image, look: the entire history state is there. …So we can actually go back and forth. …As we scroll through there, notice at the top there, we're just moving the mouse over, …but we can see a preview of what it looked like before and after each one of these history states. …This gives us a lot of room for experimentation, and one of things that's great about this …is we can save these as snapshots.…
If you look into the snapshot here, I can just hit the plus, and I am going to call this one hiCont. …
