Is it possible to get the paramaters used at any point of the history? Say I used the color balance tool, is it possible to view from the history the settings I used when applying it? (Photoshop must store this information if it can revert and reapply it right?)
I am using Photoshop CS4, thanks.
In the preferences set the History Log to a Text file (and set a save location for it) and choose “Detailed” from the drop down.
Once you do this Photoshop will track settings.
For example you could then open the text file and see something like this:
2012-03-29 15:33:47 File Untitled-1 opened Curves Curves Preset Kind: Custom Adjustment: curves adjustment list curves adjustment Channel: composite channel Curve: point list point: 0, 0 point: 100, 83 point: 172, 211 point: 255, 255 Color Balance Color Balance Shadow Levels: 0, 0, 0 Midtone Levels: 23, -52, 95 Highlight Levels: 0, 0, 0 With Preserve Luminosity
Note… if you don’t have this set.. there’s no way to get the info from a previous image. As far as I’m aware, this is the only way to get previous settings used and until it’s set like this the data is not stored anywhere specifically.
