What is a smart object?

July 21, 2015 - By 

In Adobe Photoshop, you can create smart objects. Smart objects’ contents are linked or referenced from external image files. The contents of the linked smart object are automatically updated when you edit and save the source image. Smart Objects preserve an image’s source content with all its original characteristics, enabling you to perform nondestructive editing to the layer.

Smart Object benefits
With Smart Objects, you can:

Perform nondestructive transforms. You can scale, rotate, skew, distort, perspective transform, or warp a layer without losing original image data or quality because the transforms don’t affect the original data.

  1. Work with vector data, such as vector artwork from Illustrator, that otherwise would be rasterized in Photoshop.
  2. Perform nondestructive filtering. You can edit filters applied to Smart Objects at any time.
  3. Edit one Smart Object and automatically update all its linked instances.
  4. Apply a layer mask that’s either linked or un-linked to the Smart Object layer.
  5. Try various designs with low-resolution placeholder images that you later replace with final versions.

With smart objects in Packreate’s PSD packaging mock-ups, you can instantly change graphics or text just by double clicking the smart object layer, remember to save it after editing to see the instant results on the packaging.

Are you preparing for your project presentation and you are finding a suitable packaging to put in your precious creation onto a wine bottle or can drink?

We know building a mock-up from scratch is no easy task. You do not want to spend time running to the nearest supermarket, shop for your wine bottle, peel off the label, clean up the residue left behind by the label, set up lights to shoot the bottle yourself or hire a professional to get it done. You are not done yet, now you have to open the photo up in Photoshop and path out the product to get rid of the background and then do whatever adjustments you need to get it looking good.
