Join John Derry for an in-depth discussion in this video Identifying safety nets, part of Painter 2017 Essential Training.
- [Instructor] A safety net is a mechanism…to prevent someone from falling into danger.…Painter has several safety nets that you can use…not only to keep yourself from losing your work…but also to encourage you to experiment without fear.…Let's take a look at a few safety nets.…So let's say I'm playing with this image…and I'm experimenting around here…and I want to just see how this is going to work…if I maybe use a few complimentary colors on here…to highlight the petals of the poppies…and all of a sudden while I'm working here…I notice, oh, I didn't this on a layer.…
How am I going to get this back?…I've just ruined my image.…Well, you do have a recourse…and that recourse is probably the greatest invention…along with the computer which is Undo.…With multiple undoes in Painter, I can go back…so I haven't lost my work…or I haven't destroyed it in this case.…I can actually get it back and in fact,…you can even use Painter's Redo command…which by default is Shift y or Control y on Windows…but see, now I'm bringing it back.…
