Only the icon in the corner of the …thumbnail here indicates that it's Smart Object. …And because it appears as a single layer, Photoshop is going to allow us to treat …it as if it really is a single layer. What we're going to do here is to adjust …this image so it look like it's been photographed in perspective, live on a table.…
