Working with Photoshop Smart Objects

In this exercise, I am going to show you how to work with a vector-based smart object here inside Photoshop. Now I haven't saved my results yet, because I am going to do it in front of you. Now that we have a layered file that includes a smart object and this background item, we need to choose a different format than TIFF. We could go ahead and save to the TIFF format because TIFF does support layers, but that's not the conventional standard. Most folks don't expect to see layers inside of their TIFF files. Also, TIFF in my opinion doesn't handle layers as elegantly as the native PSD format. So here's what we are going to do.

Go to the File menu, choose the Save As command if you are working along with me, and we'll switch the Format from TIFF to PSD right here on the top and that's a Photoshop document format, by the way. I am going to go ahead and call this guy Smart knot; I want to save all layers, of course, I want to go ahead and save the ICC Profile as well...
