Use the menu Select-> Color range. Then choose the +eyedropper icon and drag across the gradient of the sky until you have the sky selected. Then go to the Adjustments (under the layers panel) and choose Hue/Saturation, Curves or whatever you want to do with the sky.

Smart objects are self-contained. They are treated as a single layer within the parent Photoshop file. Internal blend modes over transparency will have no effect on other non-smart object layers. To solve this issue, remove the 'overlay' drop shadow from the internal smart object layer (just turn off the visibility) and apply the 'overlay' mode drop shadow ...

Unfortunately and as far as I'm concerned: No. Smart objects are the equivalent of a file that can open in Photoshop or Illustrator. They are always opened as a new document. As a temporary fix, if your object is not too big and you are only using it once, you can drag the layers to the document, edit them and turn them into a smart object again.

Highlight the Smart Object in the Layers Panel. Choose Layer > Layer Style > Color Overlay. Set the color overly blend mode to "Normal" and 100%. Click the little color box, input your hex value, and click OK twice.

Hate to say it.. but you can't. Transformations, other than scale, permanently alter the SO. You can always double-click to open the SO, then drag-drop that layer to the document again and recreate a straight SO. But I realize this doesn't help when having to export many files.

You can´t use gradient tool on shape or smart object in PS, when you want to add gradient to your star just open blending options ( right click on that layer > blending options ), and check and set gradient overlay

Double-click the Smart Object to open it in a new window Highlight all the layers in the .psb (smart object) which opens Choose Layer > Group from the menu Hold the Shift key down and drag from the Smart Object Window to your original document window with the Move Tool. Drag the fx icon from the Smart Object layer to the new Layer Group you just dragged ...

Another option is to: Create the layer Add the styles you want Right click the layer and select Copy Layer Styles Hold CTRL/CMD and select the other layers you want to add the styles to Right click one and Paste Layer Styles.

Illustrator files as Smart Objects in Photoshop are dependent upon the version of Illustrator they were created in. For example, if you create an Illustrator document in Illustrator CS4 years ago, then embed it in Photoshop as a smart object. Today you only have Illustrator CC, so when you open the Photoshop file and double-click the vector Smart Object, it ...

This is now somewhat possible with Photoshop CS6 or newer. You can place all the layers you wish to apply the style to into a Layer Group. Then apply the layer style directly to the group.

The "blur" you see is due to photoshop trying to calculate the way your type should look at the particular perspective and adding anti-aliasing . Simply put I don't think you can fix it. I would recommend using a different mockup psd that is not as skewed as this one. Here's a site that has a few samples you can choose from. If you take a look at all mockups ...

Smart object is a container. It's kinda like if you think of something like a video projector: The projected image is smart object and the original image is the smart object content. You can edit the projected image, but the original image stays just the way it was. If you however edit the original image, the projected image changes as well.

Photoshop does have Data sets. They can do something like what you want, but it has always been a bit weird in the sense that you can only export files .psd. You can of course convert them to other formats, but it's still odd that you can't export to other format straight away. You can do this following without an external file, but I'm going to explain ...

In all versions prior to the Jan 2014 update to Photoshop CC that's just the way Smart Objects work, unfortunately. Photoshop CC, as of Jan 2014, allows you to choose between embedding and linking when creating a Smart Object. Linked S.O.'s behave just like linked files in Illustrator or InDesign. If the external (linked) file is edited and saved, all the ...

Your clipboard preferences in Illustrator need to be set accordingly so that vector data is retained. Ensure Both PDF and AICB are checked. You may also want to relaunch the apps and possibly reboot the system if you haven't done that. THis is more of a tech support issue because by default you can copy/paste objects from Illustrator as a vector smart ...

It's no longer "Live Paint" art if you've clicked the Expand button. I'm not seeing any extra line specifically. If you are referring to the thin grey line within the black areas, that is a result of on-screen anti-aliasing. Even vector art needs to use the pixels of your monitor to show you things. Those hairlines should disappear when printed or if ...

File > Place did exactly what I wanted to do! Thanks to the user who commented above - I couldn't mark that as the right answer for some reason.

The problem is: Bicubic resampling. I think you need nearest neighbor resampling (In the save for the web window you can select it under "Quality") For more information: http://www.earthboundlight.com/phototips/resizing-resampling-photoshop.html Update: For smart objects there is no resampling option :( : http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1026169

You can not. The Smart object opens in the application which created it. Smart Objects are true to their originating application. If the smart object was originally created in Photoshop, there is no way to tell it to open in Illustrator, and vice versa. The Adobe documentation simply means the Smart Object will open in whatever app is appropriate, not that ...

At this time the only option is right click > New Smart Object via Copy but since I needed to do this several times I created a custom shortcut in Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts or Alt+Shift+Ctrl+K. To modify the New Smart Object via Copy look under Layer > SmartObject>. NOTE: If you duplicate a folder with several of the smart objects inside it ...

Are you double clicking on the smart object layer (it is highlighted below)? double clicking it will open the smart object as so: I used the template with this image from a search for 1136 x 640: and my results are this: works fine for me so I think you are entering in the wrong settings or are mixing up the width x height

Unfortunately, smart objects are dumb in that respect. With all the magic that smart layers allows you to do, the negative is that there isn't an easy way to ungroup them efficiently. The only way to bring the contents of that smart object into your Photoshop document is to export the smart object as a .psb file, or edit the smart object and then manually ...

For # smart object outlines and colors? -- Ctrl + Click the particular smart object layer. -- The outer layout is selected -- Now right click or choose form EDIT menu > Stroke and give the color and stroke type. ** make this stroke things in separate layer so that u can change color later thr blending option

I don't understand why you even need to do this. Do your editing in Photoshop then go to Fireworks. K.I.S.S.

A more effective way to copy/paste layer style is to set up shortcuts. Edit > Keyboard shortcuts > Application menu > Layer > Set up shortcuts: Copy Layer Style – Cmd/Ctrl + Shift + C Paste Layer Style – Cmd/Ctrl + Shift + V Clear Layer Style – Cmd/Ctrl + Shift + X Select layer in layers panel and press Cmd/Ctrl + Shift + C Select other layers ...

If you hit apple+T to transform the smart object again, tranform options pop up at the top of the screen. If you orinally changed the scale, the scaling changes will appear in the percentages. Simply type in 100% in both to bring it back to full size. If you warped it, click the warp button and select "None" from the drop down menu at left, restoring it to ...

Smart objects are only as good as their initial resolutions. If you enlarge a smart object beyond it's original size, you fall victim to the same broken pixels you would get if the image was not a smart object. Whether you tunnel into a smart object and enlarge the original element, or simply enlarge the smart object, you should not enlarge beyond the ...
