Join Chris Converse for an in-depth discussion in this video Transforming Smart Objects and shape layers, part of Design the Web: Adobe Generator for Graphics.
…Now we're going to take a look at how…we can transform the images created by Adobe Generator.…So, what we're going to do is, come down to the promo2.png8.…I'm going to remove the 8 after the .png.…Let's get the cursor to the beginning of the layer name.…I'm going to type 400%, then a space, then hit Return.…So now in the Assets folder, we're…going to get a promo2.png file that's been modified.…But if we come in here and open this up, what we'll see is the resulting…file is now four times the size of…the original set of pixels in our Photoshop file.…
You'll also notice that the quality has gone down as well.…We get the same problem here, that we would have…if we were to scale this shape up inside of Photoshop.…So let's close this, let's switch over to our exercise files,…and let's go over here and open the file called photo.jpg.…Now, this is just a higher definition version of that particular graphic.…So, I'm going to go in here with my Marquee tool.…Let's come in here and just copy that artwork.…Close that file.…
