Photoshop is widely popular not just because of the great features that it offers but also because it is always making changes to make the workflow of a photographer easier. One such example is the smart objects in Photoshop. This tool allows you so much flexibility while editing an image without even worrying about the destructive process. Read along if you want to learn more about smart objects.
What are Smart Objects
Creating Smart Objects
There are two ways to create photoshop smart objects: embedded smart objects and linked smart objects. Now, let us discuss each one in detail.
Embedded Smart Objects
There are different ways to create embedded smart objects in Photoshop. You can do any of the following for this purpose.
Linked Smart Objects
Creating linked smart objects in Photoshop is even easier. And if you change the original image file, it will automatically produce the changes in the linked objects. This feature is useful when you have to use artistic assets across different designs or even when different teams are working on the same design. Instead of individually updating the changes, you can use linked smart objects.
There are only two steps required for the creation of a linked smart object.
Convert Embedded to Linked
The best part of using smart objects in Photoshop is that an embedded smart object can be easily converted into a linked smart object without even losing any of the edits performed on it. It even preservers the filters and transforms during the conversion.
