Example text

The lower the Quality setting, the more image degradation occurs. Take a look at the figure here. The original image is on the left. In the middle is the same image saved in JPEG format with high quality and then on the right with low quality. Take a look at the cheek and the area between the top row of beads and the chin. See what I mean by degradation? If you save by using JPEG a second time, even more data is thrown away. Every time you save, your image quality suffers. Yes, indeed, you might sometimes need to open a JPEG image, make some changes, and save as JPEG again (perhaps for the Web, perhaps to share with nonPhotoshop friends and family).

You might think that you see a car or a circle or a tree or Uncle Bob in an image, but the image is actually only a bunch of little colored squares. Although you can read about various ways to work with groups of pixels throughout this book, each pixel exists unto itself. ߜ Each pixel is square (except on TV). Really! Each pixel in a digital image is square except when you’re creating images for television, which uses nonsquare pixels. ) It’s important that you understand the squareness of pixels because you sometimes have to deal with those pointy little corners.

You can choose as a source any history state that comes after the image’s pixel dimensions change but none that come before. Here’s one example of using the History Brush as a creative tool. You open a copy of a photograph in Photoshop. You edit as necessary. You use the Black and White adjustment on the image to make it appear to be grayscale. In the History panel, you click in the left column next to the step immediately prior to Black and White to designate that as the source state, the appearance of the image to which you want to revert.
