Last time I discussed about How to Turn On Auto Recovery to Save your Life. It case your computer turns off accidently, you probably don’t want to lose all the things that you’ve done to a image you were working on. This is why Adobe has included a life-savior feature that automatically saves your photo every 10 minutes.

So lets begin today’s tutorial.

Step 1
