How do I undo changes to a photo in Photo Gallery?

With Photo Gallery you can undo changes you make to your photos so they look like they did when you first imported them. When you edit a photo, the original photo isn't visible in the gallery. To see both the original and edited versions of your photo, you'll need to make a copy of the original photo before you edit it.

If you have difficulty finding your edited photos, see Find recently edited photos in Photo Gallery.
