About this event

Creating Smart Object Layers

A Smart Object layer is created when you convert one or more layers in a Photoshop document to a Smart Object. It is also an option when you Open, Place or place an AI file (Adobe Illustrator) PDF, PSD or Camera Raw file into a Photoshop document. If you double click the thumbnail for a Smart Object made from Photoshop layers a separate document opens in Photoshop, containing the embedded layers. You can edit, change and move layers. Save the file and go back to the original image and see the changes. (A smart filter is a actually a Smart Object).
If you double click on a thumbnail of a Smart Object that contains contents, the embedded file opens in the creator application. In either case when you edit, save and close the new window, your changes will appear in the Photoshop document.

Linked Smart Objects

Basic Smart Objects are a powerful way to insert content from various file types in a non-destructive way. Designers especially use Smart Objects to mix different media types within Photoshop. Linked Smart Objects, new in Photoshop CC, can improve collaboration and allow teams to work more efficiently. They can also save hard disk space by reducing the size of your Photoshop files. With new linked Smart Objects, objects are referenced to files on your local system or network drive, allowing for more efficient re purposing of assets and making collaboration much easier. This linking functionality is similar to Adobe InDesign and Adobe Illustrator.

Topics will include:

  • Drawing tools

  • Layer Mask/Layer Mask From a Selection
