Photoshop Tip

The most useful thing I’ve learned to use so far on Photoshop is the eraser
tool. I found that when you cut and paste an image onto a layer, you can
erase parts of the pasted image and the old layer appears. It’s really
helpful when you’re working on the main layer to duplicate it before you
start messing around with it. If you mess up and want it to go back to the
original way but you have used up all your ‘step back’ clicks, or for some
other reason it just won’t go back to the original you can use the
duplicate image you created, cut and paste the part you want back to
normal, and then erase around it so that just the part you want back is
visible. I’ve used this a lot, especially with text and color.
