Chapter 2 – Basic Global Adjustments

Hi Josh – You talked about how you can use the Before & After copy function to change the default before. Once you’re done with that is there a way to set the before back to the original image, with no edits? Thanks.

Hey Jim,

Great question. And yes, there’s a pretty easy way to do that. In the comparison view where you are looking at the Before and After, down in the Toolbar at the bottom, hit the button that says “Swap Before and After Settings.” Then right-click on the new After photo, and select Settings -> Reset. Then hit the button to swap the Before and After photos again.

Let me know if you have any other questions.



Very useful tips here, Josh. As I use a Mac, how do I achieve Solo Mode on my laptop? I am using the latest version of CC, and can’t make my Develop module panel go to Solo mode.

Hi Norman, the process for getting into Solo Mode should be the same… right click on any of the Develop Panel headings and select Solo Mode. To right click I believe you can hit Control + Click, or click with two fingers on the track pad. Hope that helps!
