Join Steve Caplin for an in-depth discussion in this video Editing Smart Objects, part of Photoshop: Smart Objects.
- [Instructor] There's a key difference…between regular layers and Smart Objects.…Let's choose the color replacement tool…and on the original layer,…we can change the color of this chair…simply by choosing the color we want…and painting over the blue.…When we go to do the same on the Smart Object layer,…we get this dialogue.…It says that you can't edit the contents…of a Smart Object directly.…Do we want to rasterize it,…which means turn it into a regular layer?…No we don't.…
So let's cancel that.…Instead, we'll look at how Smart Objects work.…You can see this icon in the corner…and that indicates that this is a Smart Object…that it contains the original layer.…When we double click it,…it now opens that layer in a new window.…And here it is, Elvis copy.psb…and .psb is the internal Photoshop file format.…We can now paint over this.…
We've changed it inside the .psb.…When we close this window, we'll get a prompt saying…do you want to save the changes?…Yes we do.…Click save.…And there now is the Smart Object…with those changes saved back into it.…
