Happy New Year! I love this time of the year, when we can start fresh and “reset” our lives with new resolutions. It’s like getting a chance to start over and do things right this time.
With Photoshop and PSE, you can get a fresh start by transforming the Cancel buttons to “Reset.” When you are working in a window such as Hue/Saturation, Levels, Brightness/Contrast, Gradients (or others) clicking Cancel will erase your adjustments and close the window. Sometimes, however, you just need a fresh start – you need to cancel your changes and try again.
When you just need to return to the original settings, but don’t want to close the window, press the Alt key on your keyboard (Mac: Opt key) to transform the Cancel button to a Reset button.
Like the New Year, using Reset gives you a fresh start so that you can do better the second time.
This month, our Photoshop and PSE tips will help you develop good Photoshop habits. Be sure to check the newsletter each week for our Photoshop New Year’s Resolutions.
