5.11.  Revert

Revision History
Revision $Revision: 1.10 $ 2006-07-27 scb

The Revert command reloads the image from disk, so that it looks just like it did the last time it was saved — unless, that is, you or some application other than GIMP have modifed the image file, in which case, the new contents are loaded.

[Warning] Warning

When GIMP reverts a file, it actually closes the existing image and creates a new image. Because of this, reverting an image is not undoable, and causes the undo history of the image to be lost. GIMP tries to protect you from losing your work in this way by asking you to confirm that you really want to revert the image.

5.11.1.  Activating the Command

  • You can access this command from the image menubar through File->Revert. There is no default keyboard shortcut.
