Join Chris Converse for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a callout from a duplicated Smart Object, part of Design the Web: Smart Objects.
Now, the first main content callout area we're going to create is going to be for the knee.…Let's come over here and make sure we're inside of the main content area in the Layers panel.…Let's come down to the Ellipse tool.…Let's come up to the stage, let's click and drag, and let's click and drag a circle at about 140 pixels.…Once we have the ellipse in place, let's come over here to the runner.…To duplicate this, we can hit Command+J or Ctrl+J like before, or we can hold the Option…or Alt key. Click and drag and this will make a duplicate as well.…
So now with our duplicate, let's get the Move tool.…Let's move her over into place.…We're going to want to highlight the knee area.…Let's hit Command+T or Ctrl+T to transform.…Let's scale her up a little bit.…So we're going to scale her up to about 85%.…So we can do this by clicking and dragging, or we can come up to the toolbar and type…in 85 on the Width and Height. Let's hit Return.…Let's grab the Move tool.…Let's position her knee over top of the ellipse.…
