Smart objects have been around for a while in Photoshop. They are extremely handy for keeping files editable, and they really help with productivity. When you’re working with smart objects, all you have to do is double click your smart object and you are taken to a temporary file. This is where you can make quick edits to that file, and when you save it and close it, it will auto-update in your working Photoshop file. Well, Adobe decided to take things further, with the ability to have Linked Smart Objects in Photoshop CC. This means that you could have one file, linked to multiple Photoshop documents. When you make a change to the original linked smart object, it will update throughout all of the Photoshop files that you have. This is similar to having files linked in an InDesign file, except that Photoshop automatically updates the linked file, without you having to relink it, or update the link. In the video below, you’ll learn how to use Linked Smart Objects in Photoshop CC.
