Join Steve Caplin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjusting the effects, part of Photoshop CS5: Smart Objects.
In this image so far, we've place our crew members on the planet's surface, and …applied three smart filters to them. We've also painted on the mask to hide …the effect of those filters selectively.

One thing we can do with Smart Filters in …Photoshop, which we can't do with filters on a regular layer is to change the way …they appear after we've applied them. For example, let's take this motion blur filter. …As we've already seen, we can hide and show it by turning the effect on and off, …tickling this Eye button. What we can also do is double-click it …and that will bring up the filters original dialog, using the settings that …we applied when we first applied this filter.…
