    Example...

    I crop a picture then I start to do adjustments.
    Some times I like to hit the reset button, but it resets it back to the original...
    How can I control how back it does the "reset"
    Do you know what I mean?
    BTW I am new at LR
    Thanks in advance.

    AFAIK, "Reset" is reset; takes you right back to the 'as shot' file.

    Can't be done?

    Not that I know of. You can selectively undo edits, but I don't believe that there is a "Undo all but..." feature.

    reset is the "undo all"

    I would like crop my pic, then restart from that point, so when I hit reset it goes to the point right after the crop.

    that's one example of course. I tried making a copy, but it copies the original file.

    Oh well...thanks anyways!

    I understand what you want. I'm saying that as far as I know, LR will not allow you to do what you want.

    Your history is a record of all of the changes that you have made. You can click on any point in the history and you will be reset to that point.

    I can clear history and it gives me a new starting point. I figured it out...now I don't have to use that "reset" button.

    thanks again!

    You can also create a "virtual copy" once you get the image to a point that you like. This creates a new image to work with, removing the existing history, while also preserving the history of the original (so you don't have to clear the history, in case you want to go back and edit something later).

    So, you can hit "reset" after you make a bunch of edits, and it should reset it to the point that you created the virtual copy.

    OOO! I never thought of that. There have been a few occasions where I wanted to easily compare a point in an images edit history with the last few changes. the VC would let me do that.
