B05-04 Skill: Introducing smart objects for non-destructive transformations
"In this video we will talk about the importance of "Smart Object" in Photoshop. I'll show you how to maintain the quality of any design object or any image while editing and composing them."
Guru99 YouTube Channel
Watch the video: How to use Smart Objects in Photoshop CC to learn what a smart object is and how to use it. When you convert a layer into a smart object, you're putting it into a protective package - so you can warp or distort it anyway you want, without hurting the original image. Look at the image of the coffee cup as an example. The text was warped so it would wrap around the cup. You can continue to work with it - warp it in other ways - without losing any resolution or image data.
When finished with this exercise, save it as B05-04_Your_Name.PSD.
