You saved the photo with the same filename and extension, presumably?

If the photo is still open in XnView [when you start XnView again, if necessary] you should I think be able to use Edit > Undo [multiple times if necessary] to reverse the changes since the photo was opened originally.

Otherwise, I don't think the original photo can be recovered... :(

Always work with copies of original files when there is any possibility of needing to return to the original image... :wink:

I think what Xnvew do copies of original files as temporary files or thumbs. Sad.
