(music playing) Hi! I'm Chris Converse. In this course, we're going to be taking a look at using Smart Objects inside of Photoshop to increase your speed and flexibility when creating design compositions. We're going to be creating Smart Objects out of large JPEG files, out of layers from other Photoshop files, layers in an existing Photoshop file, and even Smart Objects from the Illustrator Files. Once we have our Smart Objects in place, we're going to be duplicating, scaling, transforming them, and then modifying artwork inside of the Smart Objects so that every instance of a Smart Object can be modified on the canvass.
This is going to greatly increase your speed when creating compositions and modifying compositions based on creative direction or client changes. So I hope this course sounds interesting you and if so, let's get started.
