Photoshop Foundations:  Smart Objects

For years I avoided Smart Objects and any educational material that revolved around them.  I thought they were too complex and time-consuming to be valuable for photographers.  As with just about everything, time will have its way with you and guide you to wisdom.  More and more frequently I find myself using Smart Objects in my day to day workflow.

While many people think Smart Objects are meant for designers and web layout specialists, there are some great ways we can use them as Photographers.  In this course, we are going to discuss all things Smart Objects and how they can help you, a photographer, in your Photoshop Workflow.  After this brief course, you will be up to speed on Smart Objects and in the end, you will be working a whole lot smarter, not harder 🙂  I just had to say that (my Dad would appreciate that).

  • The difference between raster and vector layers
