Join Chris Converse for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a second callout, part of Design the Web: Smart Objects.
Now, the quickest way to create another callout will be to just simply duplicate this entire group.…Let's grab callout-knee.…Let's drag and drop it right on top of the new layer. That will duplicate this entire group.…Let's first rename this.…This will be callout-hip. Hit Return.…Let's toggle that group open.…With the group selected, let's grab the Move tool.…Let's just move this up a little bit.…First, let's come down to the ellipse.…Let's select the Ellipse layer. Command+T or Ctrl+T to transform.…
Let's scale this up.…We want this to be around 200 pixels. Click Return.…Move this around a little bit.…Let's come over to the runner.…Let's get the Move tool.…Let's move this so that her hip is in place. Command+T or Ctrl+T.…Let's just scale this down a little bit.…Move this into place and then hit Return.…So now that we have our two main content callout areas created,…next, we'll add the dotted callout lines.…
