    Just resave the file and open it again? Or double your canvas width and copy paste it over? or just toggle the history switch when you take a snapshot?

    You can open files as a copy. Or simply duplicate the layer and work from within a layer folder.

    you can...but if you're smart you're working in layers, so just alt-click the bottom layer and it turns off all the edited layers and leaves open the original...there's your "Before->After"

    Or you can just copy the original image and leave that as the top layer and turn it on and off by clicking the eye icon next to it to compare.
