Adobe Photoshop Smart Objects are still the number one query that brings readers to The Kayview Gallery. We've had a dozen difference posts (check out the archive list in the right hand column) discussing Smart Objects covering a period from 2011 through today’s post. Today’s “image” is a little test I’ve created that you can replicate to prove to yourself that CTRL-ALT-SHIFT-E doesn’t work and Smart Objects do. Once you’ve done the four finger salute to the left side of your keyboard, you’re stuck. Sure, you can go back under the red line you see in the middle Layers Panel in today’s image. You can make all sorts of changes to the Layers below. Only problem is that they won’t be reflected back to the Layer above the red line. The red line is “a line in the sand”. You can’t cross it. Take the test. Set up a couple Layers that look like the Panel captioned “This is the basic layout for our discussion”. You don’t have to follow it exactly. Do whatever you’d like to set up a test. Follow along with what you’ll find by hitting the “Read More”.
