love the new "linked smart object" functionality. However, I can not figure out how I can convert (or export) an existing embedded smart object to a linked smart object.
I have a huge photoshop file with several embedded smart objects that I would like to break down into a lightweigt photoshop with with links to the varios smart object photoshop files.
Is there any way to do this?
That feature is not in CC. Perhaps with a future release of PS it will be.
It should always be possible to open the smart object, and instead of the normal "save" to re-embed it, "save as" to somewhere else. Then place that linked. A workaround, sort of, but doable.
You can also do this with SOs from ACR, by doing "save" instead of "OK".
Thanks a lot guys.
I am just now putting a document together with linked smart objects and I'm noticing that the file size of the PSD file still increases quite a bit. I thought the hole point of this was to have lightweigh psd files?
I currently have 11 1920x1080 linked smart object files in the PSD and the file size is already at 140MB. Any ideas why this is happening?
