As you work with effects, and processing techniques, chances are you will go…too far at some point.…You'll notice this most likely when you print the image, and it just looks too…dark, or too contrasty.…Being able to go back in and modify is a good thing.…If you feel like you've taken an individual effect too far, notice that most of…them have arrows allowing you to increase or decrease the individual effect.…You can also click None to remove all the quick effects.…
You'll notice that that doesn't still get the image back to its default.…Now, you do have the ability to revert to the previous state, but that's not the original.…Revert to Previous will take you to where it was before you entered Edit mode.…So, if you're tweaking, and change your mind, that's pretty good.…However, we can, under the Quick Fixes tab, choose Revert to Original, and this…will ask you to confirm the change, because it is going to throw those away.…Reverting will take it all the way back to the original state of the image.…
