So, I haven't used photoshop in about ten years. I decided to colorize an intricate photo of my grandparents to give my self a project to help me crash course back into this program. Well, I went trigger happy in the history panel and long story short, I deleted a bunch of layers. As I mentioned the pic is intricate due to the outfits my grandparents are wearing, so I really lost a lot of work! Can layers be retrieved or can the history panel be restored even after I closed out of the program? I have an alternative possibly... I hurried up to take a snapshot of my image in the mobile version of Adobe cloud before it was replaced by the image I'm stuck with now (which it DID replace it)... can I build on top of this image, or am I just screwed now?

No once you close the document history state were returned to free memory and reused. If you did not save the layers into a file before you delete them they are history. You need to time travel to retrieve them. I believe Mac may have a time machine feature.

Haha if only! I'd go back and learn this stuff when I had an 18 yo mind 🤦🏻‍:female_sign:. Thank you though! I'll just have to re-do everything and hopefully learn from this mistake.
