Artboards enable you to create a multi-page PDF or completely separate files within a single PSD file. Learn more about Adobe Artboards.

NOTE: You must have Adobe Create Cloud & the most current software version to receive these features.

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_toggle title=”Open a smart object” open_toggle_text_color=”#2d2d2d” open_toggle_background_color=”#ffffff” closed_toggle_text_color=”#4e4e4e” closed_toggle_background_color=”#ffffff” icon_color=”#bc9d59″ _builder_version=”3.10.1″ title_level=”h3″ title_font=”||||||||” border_width_all=”0px” border_width_top=”1px” border_color_top=”#d8d8d8″ custom_margin=”||0px|”]Smart objects in PSD act as a file within a file to keep your layers organized and tidy. Learn more about Adobe Smart Objects.

All smart objects are indicated with the red color layer. To change the image, simply double-click the smart object icon from the smart object layer. Optionally, you can also open a smart object by: right-click the smart object layer > Edit Contents.[/et_pb_toggle][et_pb_toggle title=”Add image to smart object” open_toggle_text_color=”#2d2d2d” open_toggle_background_color=”#ffffff” closed_toggle_text_color=”#4e4e4e” closed_toggle_background_color=”#ffffff” icon_color=”#bc9d59″ _builder_version=”3.10.1″ title_level=”h3″ title_font=”||||||||” border_width_all=”0px” border_width_top=”1px” border_color_top=”#d8d8d8″ custom_margin=”||0px|”]Drag and drop your new image into anywhere in the smart object screen or copy (ctr+c) and paste (ctr+v) your image into the file above the yellow base layer.

Adjust your image size and optionally add in at adjustment layers until you are happy with the results.

NOTE: The yellow background is a safeguard to show you if you have filled the entire smart object area. If you can still see the yellow, then you need to scale your image larger.

[/et_pb_toggle][et_pb_toggle title=”Close to save smart object” open_toggle_text_color=”#2d2d2d” open_toggle_background_color=”#ffffff” closed_toggle_text_color=”#4e4e4e” closed_toggle_background_color=”#ffffff” icon_color=”#bc9d59″ _builder_version=”3.10.1″ title_level=”h3″ title_font=”||||||||” border_width_all=”0px” border_width_top=”1px” border_color_top=”#d8d8d8″ custom_margin=”||0px|”]

Click the (x) in the file tab to close your smart object file OR optionally, click File > Close.

A screen will appear asking to save changes. To save your changes to the smart object, click save.

NOTE: Do not click “save as.” PSD uses temporary file storage to save smart objects. If you “save as” you will break the smart object relationship and your changes will not be saved.

[/et_pb_toggle][et_pb_toggle title=”Review Changes & Repeat Process” open_toggle_text_color=”#2d2d2d” open_toggle_background_color=”#ffffff” closed_toggle_text_color=”#4e4e4e” closed_toggle_background_color=”#ffffff” icon_color=”#bc9d59″ _builder_version=”3.10.1″ title_level=”h3″ title_font=”||||||||” border_width_all=”0px” border_width_top=”1px” border_color_top=”#d8d8d8″ custom_margin=”||0px|”]After closing the file your original file should appear in PSD. Review the changes that were made to the smart object. Repeat step 5-7 for all other smart objects.[/et_pb_toggle][et_pb_code _builder_version=”3.11.1″ custom_padding=”2%|||” global_module=”32630″][/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
