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.
