Undo Unsharp Mask
If you don't like the effect of a filter you've just applied, or you've gone wrong with a brushstroke you can use Undo to take you back one step. Edit ?Step Forward/Step Backwards makes life even easier. It's like the History palette but uses shortcut keys to speed things up. Whatever you do can be simply undone. (For multiple undos see History palette )
Use all Layers
Select this mode in the Rubber Stamp, Paint bucket or Sharpness/Blur/Smudge palettes to ensure the colors of all layers are considered when an effect is applied to the active layer. When Use all Layers is not selected only the colors in the active layer are sampled, cloned or smudged.
Here's what happens when we clone from a source image (Untitled 1) to a destination document (Untitled 2). The image has text on each of three layers. The first example (top) doesn't have Use All Layers selected. When you clone from source to destination only the active layer is picked up and cloned onto the new document. When Use All Layers is selected (right) all three layers are cloned.
