With Smart Objects you can create a complex transformation once and then swap out the contents for any artwork you choose. It’s the ideal method for simplifying and speeding up repetitive tasks, and it allows you to create templates that can be repurposed as many times as you wish. In the Photoshop CS5 Smart Objects Workshop, Photoshop artist and author Steve Caplin shows you how you can use Smart Objects to enhance almost all your Photoshop work.
