Tutorial: What is a Smart Object?

Today let’s take a look at Smart Objects in Photoshop, and how they can help us in our digital layouts and projects.

So just what IS a Smart Object?

“A Smart Object is a container in which you can embed raster (e.g. PSD, JPEG, TIFF) or vector (e.g. AI, PDF, EPS) image data from another Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator file that retains all its original characteristics and remains fully editable.  A Smart Object can be scaled, rotated, and warped non-destructively without losing original image data.”   (ref: Steven Johnson)

And what does that mean for us as digital scrapbookers?

NEW Christmas-Themed Border Buddies are here!

I love Borders!  I appreciate how handy they can be when wanting to create pages that go together quickly and easily.  But I also appreciate how elaborate borders can be, depending on how much time and effort we want to put into them. These thoughts are always what I have in mind when I create new Border Buddies!

Border Buddies Sets 13 and 14 are now available.  These Christmas-themed Buddies will help you make lovely holiday pages, gift tags, greeting cards, and much more!
