Using Smart Objects & Relinking Images in Photoshop

Hi there. This video is all about getting our money's worth of all the effort we put in. Okay, we make sure they're smart objects by default. We've been linking them without knowing. Let's get started. So let's say it is the next course that I'm doing. But because I've set this all up, it's reusable. And what's cool about it is let's say it's now Photoshop time. So this little graphic here. It needs to be illustrator. So what I'm going to do is with it selected. I can right click the name here and go to this one says re linked to file. I can go out to my exercise files. 09 art boards, logo, illustrator. Kickback. You're ready. This is the satisfying part that's not click OK, look at all these graphics update. The same is true of pictures of me. You can right click them anywhere because it's a smart object and I did that at the beginning of items are happening is as you duplicated, it comes along for the ride and they are still linked. Let's say that's not what you want. Okay, you want ...

another copy of me but you don't want to link because when you update, it's not what you want. Okay, so I'm going to make a duplicate like that. That's the bad way. What I can do is in this layer here. I can right click it and there's an option that says a new smart object please. But via copy just means they're going to make a new smile object but they're not linked. Okay, so these two look the same, but they don't have that kind of connection. Like all these other fellas do, let's do it. Let's update this one here. Right click it and I'm going to go to reading to file. There's now Daniel two in there, grab him. You can see he updated, he updated, he updated Now you'll see that they didn't update perfectly in the right spot because there were different sized images. What I really wanted to do for you is to make the image is perfect. They all lined up. That wouldn't be really realistic when you go and use and you're like it's broken, nope, that just happens to be a different image. So so it doesn't fix everything completely. The images are just different scale so we can select them both. I held down shift. So my trick is let's say on click down here. I hold my command he down or control key on a pc and click this fella, that's him there. I hold the command key and shift that's on a Mac control key and shift on a pc. You can click more than one across two different upwards because they're so similar. Why are we making instagram profile? Different from the facebook one the different sizes but the main one instagram has a big knot problem. I'm working on the instagram one. I am going to make a new layer, it's right at the top and use my lips tool just to kind of start in the corner here drag out on the lips. I'm going to invade their lips, fill it with red de select. Lower the opacity. Just tapping my number keys along the top because instagram is circles right. So you've got to kind of do some adjustments for instagram. Perfect. I might decide that it's just not relevant there but I want it there because I want to show you my cool little update actually. Did he disappear from over here? I don't know. Anyway, upgrading smart objects is easy. It's just as easy for anything you've linked from the library but a slightly different method. So we dragged these flags from the library. You probably didn't because you didn't set up a library. I did, you could have just imported these from the files but let's say you didn't have them in your library and you bring it in. What you can do is open the library. In my case it's my adobe logos library. Same thing here in your layers panel. But instead of using re link file was going to re link to a graphic, library, graphic and it says select and re link. So I'm going to say you. And then down the bottom this tiny little button link and it's going to re link them all. Now we've been doing this for kind of like social media profiles. Now this red thing shouldn't be there either. It's just temporary. I do this a lot for a web design or app design. All the principles are the same, but the smart objects gets even nicer because you end up having, say a logo that's on all of the different layouts, maybe just different sizes to match the different view ports. Plus you've got maybe a navigation that runs consistent across the mall or footer that goes across the mall and you just got them all different sizes. You can see how that would be useful. Alright, that's enough for this video. Let's cut the next one into tips and tricks for using text and kind of viewing. Now that are outboards are getting slightly more complicated, but let's do that in the next video.
