Ive been using some Photoshop actions (not developed by me) to add a 'grunge' effect to some text (a .png), it works well but theres several levels of grunge, so i tend to try a couple out to see which ones i like.

The problem is when i try one that i dont like i want to just hit undo and revert back to how the image was before, but instead it just undos 1 level of the script ie. if the script said do process 1, then 2, then 3 and i then clicked undo it would only undo step 3 not the whole script.. is there a way to change this ?

Background - im using CS5.

No. There's no way to change it.

You could simply look at the History Panel and click the step before you ran the script. Or, create snapshots (via History panel menu) and then click the snapshot you want.

If it is always a 3 step process, you could make an action with 3 undos and map that to a hotkey.

Otherwise you could do it in scripting also.
