Join Steve Caplin for an in-depth discussion in this video Replacing the contents, part of Photoshop: Smart Objects.
- [Narrator] One of the really useful things…about Smart Objects is the fact…that it gives us the ability to change the contents…of an image after we've distorted it.…We have our street scene on our postcard.…Let's now select this picture of a French chateau.…We'll Select All and Copy.…And now, let's close this picture.…Back in our Smart Object, we can select it…and double-click it to open in a new window.…
Let's paste our new image in here.…And it comes up much too big.…What we're going to do is to drag it down,…beneath the texture layer, and now make it part…of the same clipping group as the original image…so that it clips with a photo background,…leaving the frame around the edge.…We'll go to Layer and Create Clipping Mask.…
Now let's make it smaller.…Free Transform again.…Let's grab the handle and drag it down.…By holding the Shift key, we keep it in proportion.…If we hold the Option or Alt key as well,…then we can scale it from the center.…And this can make it easier to get it down…to the size we want.…
That looks like a good position to me.…
