Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with linked Smart Objects, part of Photoshop: 2013 Creative Cloud Updates.
…In this movie I'll show you how to work with Linked Smart Object.…So the idea is that instead of embedding…the image or illustration inside your Photoshop composition;…you link to an external file, which is…something Photoshop has never been able to do before.…And it comes in particularly handy when…you're importing vector based illustrations from Illustrator.…So let's say that I want to give this muscley guy a tattoo I'll…go up to the file menu and notice we now have two place commands.…Place embedded which works the same way the old place…command did, that is to say you're actually putting the…artwork inside of the Photoshop composition or this new command,…place linked, which is linking to the file on disk.…
Then I'll go ahead and find this file right…here, tiger tattoo.ai and I'll click on the place button.…And I might…as well set my thumbnail size to fit page so that we can see it nice and large.…And then I'll click OK to place that file.…Now I'm going to start things off by reducing…the size of the tiger a little bit.…
