"Undo A Save? That's Impossible, Isn't It?
This is a great trick we learned from our buddy Mike Ninness, and the first time we saw it, we said, "Hey, wait a minute, that can't be." Oh, but it be. It's how to undo a Save. This is especially helpful after you've flattened an image, saved the file, then realized that you needed to change something on a layer. This only happens to us about every other day, and here's the keyboard shortcut to fix it: Command-Option-Z (PC: Control-Alt-Z). Press it a few times after you've flattened and saved, and look in your Layers palette to see all the layers come a-rumbling right back. Pretty slick stuff."
Undoing a save is impossible after closing the document.
Although failing to address this makes me think less of this guy he is half right... Control+Alt+Z does take you back... Back through the "history" because, if you have it open when you do click caZ you will see all your really doing is selecting the previous history state.
Which might I add... does not include when you save.
So all your really doing is going back one step or more in the histoory and not undoing any save states at all. infact close and reopen and you wont becable to undo a damn thing as the history doesn't save.
(History snaps and create new doc from state were made for this)
In order to fully undo the save you have to save over it with the state you wanted it to be.
Marks out of ten for this advice... 0/10 Because some people might just caZ and close assuming they didnt need to save (Especially if they didnt know about the history.)
the other thing that brought the rating down is this...
This is especially helpful after you've flattened an image, saved the file, then realized that you needed to change something on a layer...
What kind of berk flattens an image... on a psd... if your going to do that save as a jpeg.
That just reminds me of a quote.. "Alt+f4 is the shortcut for save"
