Part 10. Working with Layers > Task 5 How to Create Smart Objects

Task 5 How to Create Smart Objects

New for Photoshop CS2, Smart Objects are essentially containers for one or more layers. The Smart Object container can be transformed, and you can change layer styles, opacity, and blend modes for the Smart Object. The important part (the “smart” part) about Smart Objects is that no matter what you do to them, the original layers remain untouched and editable. If you edit any of the original layers that make up a Smart Object, the Smart Object is updated to reflect the edits to the individual layers.
