As you work with an image, you'll sometimes want to compare where it started,…versus where it ended up.…What I mean here is that sometimes you'll start to tweak, and tweak, and tweak some more,…and if you could just see how far you've brought the image along, you might be…satisfied that you achieved the proper results.…So, with an image open, bring up the editing mode.…I've already processed this image a bit.…You'll see that the sliders have been adjusted.…We're going to cover all of these things coming up.…What I'd like to do, though, is see how the image looked, without reverting it.…
Reverting it is a permanent change that removes all of the effects that have been applied.…A much easier way is to simply press the Shift key, and you can see the before and after.…Notice that the Histogram in the upper right corner is updating.…We'll talk more about how this works later on in our training,…but essentially the image goes from being properly exposed, with nice saturation,…to a bit dark, and slightly washed out.…
