comment Adding replaceable text to Smart Objects
You're right, maybe it's best that I rethink my workflow.

comment Adding replaceable text to Smart Objects
Is there a free or cheap alternative to InDesign that can solve my issue? I'm just experimenting in my free time, so I can't really justify investing in expensive Adobe products.

I can see how this method would be useful when I have to create multiple pages using the same layout, but that's not what I currently need. I want to achieve something like this with one Smart Object.

comment Adding replaceable text to Smart Objects
Variables seem geared towards helping people mass export PSD files with different text labels every time. But I'm not bulk exporting anything. I have one page that re-uses the same Smart Object so that the layout of these objects are updated if I decide to change the template. I also want to be able to edit the caption per object without having this change be reflected in all other objects. But since the caption is embedded in the Smart Object, it appears that I can only modify it globally.

Interesting, I've never heard about that feature before. Great find! I still have to figure out if it fits my needs though. I was planning on using my template to make step-by-step instructions for something. Each card on the page should carry different text and the circle should contain a step number. The light blue placeholder will be replaced by an image that will be different for each step. The end result should be exported to PNG. I'll try it to see if it fits my workflow and get back to you.

I don't have Illustrator and it's too expensive for what I'd use it for (i.e. small hobby projects), sorry.

I'd like to keep using that functionality for longer than 30 days though.

comment Photoshop layers into SVG paths
Just a heads up: this doesn't work unless you have Illustrator, so it doesn't magically add SVG export functionality to Photoshop. You'll also need to sign up for a newsletter. If you really don't want to sign up for their e-mail list, go here to download the file directly.
