Using Smart Objects

Smart Objects enable you to import web content from any of Adobe's Creative Suite applications, such as Photoshop and Illustrator. There are many benefits to using Smart Objects in GoLive aside from the obvious convenience of being able to import an image from anywhere. The biggest advantage of using Smart Objects is probably your ability to edit your images in their native applications and have the web images automatically generated and updated in GoLive, eliminating the process of exporting images separately. Here are some of the cool things you can do with Smart Objects:

  • Smart Objects are automatically reoptimized when you resize them in GoLive.

  • You can have multiple Smart Objects that link to a single source file. This means that you can use the same image at multiple sizes and even cropped differently while still maintaining a single source.

  • When you double-click a Smart Object in GoLive, the source file opens in its original application.

  • Using the variable feature you can set layers to be variable and type your own text to be formatted in the manner of the source file. This feature is great for creating buttons, menu items, and page headers that change from time to time.

  • Crop your Smart Objects in GoLive and retain the option to uncrop at any time.

  • Change the matte color to make the backgrounds of your images match your web page background.
