NSL WEEK 216- Adobe Photoshop “Smart Object Resolution Pt.1”

I’m always working with Smart Objects in Adobe Photoshop but for my students, it takes some convincing. I hope this video illustrates some of the power in this feature.

For part 1 we’re looking at how Smart Objects can really save us even when we think the document is a “low-res file”.

Low-Res Master

When I say “Master” I just mean my main document. Take a look at the Image Size for this document. It’s a good size for emailing mockups but it is not a good size for source artwork to be printed on garments or other materials. That doesn’t mean that you can’t extract what you need, to complete the job, from this file.
