Hello I have a quick question about the new photoshop... when using the autosave feature or having it enabled. When I work alot of times I have a main file that I use as a template to create other pages from. So I will open template and update things on it and then save as and name that as a new file. My question is if I open this template file and make a few changes will it autosave those which will basically overwrite my template. I have the autosave feature turned off right now because I wasn't sure if it would do that.
I guess what I meant is that when you have autosave turned on.. it also has save in background checked.. which basically just saves your doc as you work on it every 5-10 mins... so if I opened a template document and edited it to create a new page and 5 mins passed I saved the changed template as a new file and closed the original template and selected to not save changes.. would the backup every x minutes already have saved those changes therefore changing my original template file..
Check out this link and maybe it will explain it better. http://www.photoshopessentials.com/basics/cs6/new-features/background- auto-save/
good to know...because I just apparently lost 5 hours of work by using a file as a template, only to find my original was overwritten. I am using Windows 7. Which directory can I access to recover my original file?
The autorecovery will generate a file in case of a system crash. It should be in your scratch file directory, but only if you crashed.
The background save will save in the backgound but you have to start a save in the File/save or save as. It does not automatically save a file.
I am sure you do not need a lecture, but everyone learns that saving work as you go in a different name is the only safe avenue.
