Sweetest Photoshop tip ever!

I found this one courtesy of Kevin Kubota, a professional wedding photographer.

Have you ever ended up with an effect you really loved but had no clue how you did it?

While you can't dissect existing files, you can help prevent it in the future. Pop open the General preferences, check the "History Log" box, set the radio button to "Metadata"... and every modification you make to the image—including full setting information—will be logged to the file's metadata. I expect this will bloat the PSD sizes up a bit, but hey, it's better than having to write down steps by hand. Disks are cheap.

Photoshop also offers you the option to log to a text file instead of the image file itself. That may suit you better, depending on your preferences.

Great thing to know. It'll save me the trouble of flogging my snapshot button.
