I have a sketch with hundreds of identical squares in separate layers. Now, I want to edit every square in the same way - let's say I want to give them a funny hat - without having to edit them one at a time. Is it possible to do this in Photoshop? Could smart objects provide a solution?
I understand the squares can be turned into separate smart objects, which can then be edited one at a time. Or you can put them all together in a single smart object. But is it possible to link them all to a smart object with just one single square in it, so that you can edit them all at once?
Alternatively, if you know a different way to achieve the same result I would be interested in that as well.
I use Photoshop CS4.
