    How to use smart objects to edit specific layer path

    williampzk

      Hi all,

       

      I have recently downloaded a template from Yellow Images of an item of clothing and have been designing some items of clothing using the template.

       

      What I cannot seem to get my head around is how to setup on my own templates, a smart object like the one in the layer highlighted in my screenshot at 16.33.08, titled 'FRONT', which then links to the 'Rectangle 2.psb' [smart object] file which is essentially a flat 2D image where you can just edit the pattern.

       

      I understand about the shadowing on the top layer, but would love to understand how the 'FRONT' layer on the main *.tif file links to the *.psb file titled 'Rectangle 2.psb' and how it actually updates the main *.tif file.

       

      For example if I had my own template drawing of a hoodie, how would I setup the body, sleeves, etc. to work in the same way as this?
