Pretty smart things you can do with smart objects

Layer slices on groups

Creating a layer slice on a group isn't possible in Photoshop. However converting the group into a smart object lets you add a layer based slice. Select the recently converted smart object and choose Layer > New Layer Based Slice.


Managing colour assets

Updating multiple instances of the same colour in Photoshop is so frustrating. Eleviate this pain by storing your colours in smart objects and using vector masks. For every copy of your smart object you have updating it once will update all your assets with the same colour. Sweet!
