When working on your project file you are sometimes limited with number of history states. You can change it and add more but this have some side effects. First of all it will slow down your PS and some operations may take much longer to complete than before. This is because raising the number of history states will "eat" your RAM and this is cause for slowing down of your PS.
How can we bypass this? Answer is Layer comps.
Let’s say that you have more than one layer in your project and you want to make some changes to Blending modes, opacity, filters. But you want to be sure that you'll be able to return to this point if you are not satisfied with the results.
It is very simple. Just go to the Layer comps menu,
select Create New Layer Comp,
name it as you wish and click OK.
This will save all your layers visibility, Position and appearance, and in any point of your work you would be able to return to this point and take other approach.
You can do this easy using these two arrows in bottom of Layer Comp menu.

May I publish your tutorial(s) on my website?
NO - DEFINITELY MAY NOT! I don't mind, of course, any form of back link to Digital Photo News tutorials section, but taking any one of the tutorials whole and supplanting it on your website is theft. If you really like the tutorials and want to advertise them, why not just hyperlink directly to their URL?
Is it possible to submit some of my own tutorials?
Yes! I love to add new and original tutorials to ever-growing database! If you would like to submit a tutorial, fill in the contact form with as much detail as you can manage and we'll get back to you with details. There's no need to stick to a specific format when submitting, as we will do all the boring work for you if needed... and fully credit you as the author on your tutorial pages if your submission is accepted.
Can I request a tutorial?
Of course you can! I make no guarantees i'll be able to get around to your specific tutorial in any given timeframe, but I listen to audience, and if there is demand out there for a guide to a specific technique/effect, I'll be only too glad to offer my assistance. Just ask via the contact form.
