A partial revert is accomplished either by an ordinary edit of the current version, or by editing an old version. The former is convenient, for example, for a partial reversion of a recent addition, while the latter is convenient for a partial reversion of a deletion.

==Reverting an Image==

If someone decides to vandalize an image, you can revert it back to a previous version just like an article. To revert an image:
 +
#Go to the image page (you can do this by clicking on the image you wish to revert)
 +
#Below the image is a section for file history. If you click on the link showing the date and time each revision was uploaded, you can view each image (in case you're not sure which version is correct)
 +
#Once you know which version is the correct version of the photo, click the <i>(rev)</i> link next to the image. This will revert the image to the correct version.
