They actually added this feature in the newest installment of Photoshop CC (14.2). You can see more info: See linked smart objects I am aware of this feature but have not yet used it for anything. Still you should be using indesign. Note,you probably need to script this anyway as you have many legacy files that need updating. PS: Its amazing how long it ...

You should really be using Illustrator for this if you plan to send it to the printer because your files will be huge but you didnt mention if this was for web or print. I would suggest making them vector if you can that way if you ever need to use them again but in a different size you can resize without loosing any quality. Since that wasnt your ...

Unfortunately I don't think this is possible. The only way you could accomplish this is by merging the layers together and then making your selection and moving it.

Without having a version of Illustrator the same as or later than the version used to create the .ai file, there's not much you can do. I haven't come across any tool that will give you an accurate conversion of any but the simplest file. Even with Illustrator, a direct conversion to an "equivalent PSD" (and I'm not entirely sure what you mean by that) is ...

You could always "right click" on the file, and choose "Open With" "Photoshop." Unless the file was created a version of Illustrator that is completely incompatible with your version of Photoshop, you shouldn't have a problem doing that. Once opened in Photoshop, I would choose "Smart Object" as the method to open the file, so that in the future, if this ...

Just Drag the AI file into Acrobat and convert it into .eps or .JPG or save it as .PDF' or just drag the.AI` file into Photoshop directly. I have to mention that the AI file should be saved in a way that preserve internal .PDF version of the same .AI file.
