Benefits of Smart Objects
Using Smart Objects offers many benefits over using regular layers. The primary benefit is the greatly enhanced control and flexibility they offer. Before Smart Objects, even a simple thing like resizing a graphic was always a potential problem. Here is quick example:
1. Here’s a basic logo created in Photoshop. If you keep it at the original size, it looks great. (Figure 4.1).
2. If you scale down the size, the quality looks acceptable (Figure 4.2).
