Top 5 quick fixes
In this fast-paced medium mistakes are made, but there’s always a quick fix…
By default, Photoshop’s history feature retains only your 20 last steps, but if you go to Edit> Preferences> Performance, there’s a box marked History States where you can alter this number. You can save your art as different files at different points in the process, which enables you to go back and grab an earlier version if you’re not happy with the direction it’s going in. Since you’re going to be using multiple save files, not to mention collecting reference and texture material, I recommend creating organised folders for all of your art. Not all menu options come with a shortcut, so go to Edit> Keyboard Shortcuts, select the set and type, and then select the command, option or tool you want to shortcut. Save time when regularly doing a sequence of painting steps by recording them. Go to the Actions panel> New Action> Record, complete the action, press Stop Recording and give it a shortcut.
