Now, one of the big concepts that you will hear me stress over and over and over again is the concept of nondestructive editing. You see, when we are working with traditional media, say for example, film or traditional photography, any edits that we make are typically permanent.
If you are in a dark room and you are throwing chemical onto a photo or onto a negative, you are going to permanently change it. There is no way to unchemicalize it or take away what you have done.
Likewise, if you are working with movies, if you have a VCR tape from the old days, if you are going to edit it, you would have to cut it up physically with scissors and put it back together with tape. Those changes are permanent and unchangeable.
In Photoshop, if we work intelligently, then we can go back and fix what we have done at any time. This is referred to as nondestructive editing.
In the last segment, when I applied this Brightness Correction and this Color Correction, I set these up in such a way that if I were to save and close the file and then open it up later, I could go back to it at any time. Let's say I have a client or a boss that says, you know what, I kind of like the gloomy skies, get rid of all that beautiful, beautiful color stuff that you did. I could say okay, I am just going to click this button and turn that off. I am back to square one.
I could even take out the contrast that I have added by hitting this. So it's not permanent at all. I could change it at any time.
Even if changes that we make to an image are attractive and look good, if they are permanent changes, it is still referred to as a destructive change, because it's not something that you could undo and go back on.
So as you work in Photoshop, take advantage of the tools that I will be showing you to work nondestructively. It may take an extra step or two, but I guarantee you it will save you, in the long run, a lot of headache and tedium as you work in Photoshop.
