Time to work smarter in Pho­to­shop with Smart Ob­jects!

ONE OF THE key ben­e­fits of Adobe Pho­to­shop, aside from the plethora of tools at your dis­posal, is that you can ap­ply most ed­its non­de­struc­tively. This means that pixel data isn’t af­fected by your changes up un­til the point that you ex­port the fin­ished file, and even then you can save your progress with lay­ers in­tact with some file types. This is ad­van­ta­geous in that it al­lows you to make mis­takes, ad­just or even start over with­out af­fect­ing your orig­i­nal im­age. Smart Ob­jects and Smart Fil­ters play a big part in this, and if you’ve ever had to com­pletely start over when edit­ing be­cause of a mis­take you made early on then these smart fea­tures could save you a lot of time and stress! It’s worth not­ing that while Smart Ob­jects and Fil­ters have been a part of Pho­to­shop for a while, and El­e­ments for less time, the full func­tion­al­ity de­scribed here is avail­able in Pho­to­shop CS6 and newer.
