Join Steve Caplin for an in-depth discussion in this video Replacing the contents, part of Photoshop CS5: Smart Objects.
This distorted view of a photograph lying on a table is actually a Smart Object. …If we wish we can further distort and even undistort this object, and Photoshop …will always refer to the full set of layers contained within the Smart Object. …What we're going to do here though is replace the contents with another …photograph entirely. And here is the photograph we're going to use. …Let's start by selecting it. We'll choose Select All and then Copy. …So that image is now copied to the clipboard. …Back to our original, and let's zoom in on this a little.…

Notice it's called PSD and that's the …term that Photoshop uses for its internal document structure. …And we can see it's indeed made of our three original layers, the backing the …original photo and the texture on top. Let's go to Edit > Paste.…
And this is the picture we just copied to our clipboard. …
