Alright, how to use your history brush? You can basically apply any filter, any effect to your image easily and effectively by using your history brush. Now, the history brush deals with your history palette, which is windows, history which is somewhere in here that I can’t see. There you are, history. So open that up and there you can see your history.
Now, right now, what I’ve done is I’ve opened my image and I have changed the image size. So let’s just say I wan to increase the contrast to my image but I only want to affect certain images, the quickest way is just get the contrast the way I want it.
Now, what I want to do now, as you can see the contrast; brightness contrast step is in my history, I’m just going to go to edit and step backwards. So now I’m back to the step just before I added the brightness contrast but that step is still there, so what I’m going to do is I’m going to place my history brush in that step; select my history brush, select the brush and now what I can do is I can erase back to history anywhere I want.
Let’s say I wanted to blur just the water, I can go filter, blur, Gaussian blur, give it a nice big hefty blur and then go edit, step backwards and place my history brush in the Gaussian blur step.
Now when you wear a paint, it’s going to bring back that blur step. So play around with your history brush because it can do some pretty funky stuff, alright. Thanks.
