Non-destructive Editing

Underwater Photoshop

The latest buzzword is ‘non-destructive editing’.

As we edit our images we make mistakes! How do we backtrack to a point before the error occurred?

The traditional way of preserving your original file is to save it at regular intervals. Effective, but inefficient!

Non-destructive editing simply means preserving our original pixels. This allows us to backtrack to our original image regardless of how many editing steps we apply to it.

The modern and smarter way to ensure you can go back over mistakes is to harness the power of new Photoshop features. For instance by using an adjustment layeran adjustment to the image saved as a special type of layer, which only impose their adjustments to layers beneath them without actually altering the pixels on those lower layers.
