Allow us to remove Eraser, Retouch, stamp edits

We can change previous edits in develop, effects and such. However, any previous Perfect Eraser, Retouch Brush and Clone stamp edits cannot be undone without also resetting all edits.

I suggest we have the ability to remove these edits. Maybe a right click context menu on the tool with an offer to remove all edits of that specific tool.

    I agree with this because I spent hours this evening retouching a photograph, isolating the two subjects from a complex background, I was very pleased with the result but then noticed that a very small erase that I had completed earlier was somehow now blurred and a different colour.

    I couldn’t find a way of removing this edit from my photo and had to start again.

    In LR I could simply go back to the erase/spot removal tool and remove the edit.

    This is an excellent suggestion ON1 !

    This and many other excellent request regarding retouch features need to be considered, including pre-retouch previews.

    Totally agree……..There should be a universal undo button.. history, if you will.

    I agree, the ability to selectivly remove an edit would be a fantastic edition. I’ve taken to making only a few edits and using ctrl+z to undo the last when I make a mistake. There has to be a better way!

    Yes, this feature request is absolutely important.

    Thx for request and implementation!

    This requested feature makes immense sense to me.

    I had the same experience as Stephen Hopkirk and this is very frustrating. The consequence is to slow down the workflow significantly and is a big bummer!

    Absolutely! I’ve asked for this a few times over the past two years. Let’s hope it can be done.

    I agree with the need for this capability as well. Being unable to undo erase/clone tool adjustments without undoing everything has meant I’ve undone work on photos several times just to fix a simple issue which means lots more work as I usually start with cloning in my workflow.

    This would be a huge time-saver. Currently, I spend a lot of time Ctrl-Z removing dust spots, also finding the Clone tool not so useful (but faster than Perfect eraser), since it often leaves a lot of artifacts. Re-tuning the balance of Feather and Opacity is a hazel and could be improved.

    Such seemingly small things/missing features significantly add time to the workflow.

    I don’t get it. I thought this was the whole point of a Non-Destructive Workflow?

    You can reset the retouching from the Settings menu without resetting other edits to your photo. You can also undo strokes during a session while you retouch. There is no plan to remove individual strokes at a later point however.

    Dan, perhaps you can do a quickie video to demonstrate this. I have that myself in this situation several times just recently. Perhaps a better solution would be to implement a “history” tab/selection…so we can determine how many steps back we need to re-edit?
