Hi, chances are the the edited one was overwrote the original one. BUT, you can see if you can find an Undo option in the right-click menu of the folder where you saved it.
Also right click the picture file, Properties, Previous versions and see if one is available.
To keep the original, any edited file, any kind, must either have a different name applied OR saved to a folder different from the original.

Just for future reference, If you need to repair or restore previous versions of any files, you can download the free app ShadowExplorer http://www.shadowexplorer.com/ which is an alternative program for Vista and Windows 7 for the Previous Versions feature that is not available for all editions.
