Project Description

The Complete Smart Object Workflow

If you are new to Smart Objects, I would suggest that you start HERE: as it will start at the very beginning. This class is more designed for people familair with Smart Objects, Smart Filters, and ready to learn more about what is possible.


Upload your final retouched photo using The Complete Smart Object Workflow you learned. For example, inlcude Linked Smart Objects.

  • Camera Raw is Your Best Friend. Effortlessly learn the interface and tools to retouch your raw photo. 
  • Smart Objects for a Smart Workflow. Develop a non-destructive workflow thru the use of Smart Objects and Smart Filters without permanently affecting your original photo.

A finished project should include:

  • Your final image
  • Your original image
  • A brief summary of your process and what you’ve learned

You can move onto the next class Photoshop Basic 2 – Masking, Clipping, and Refining class to keep you going through the whole course HERE:

Good luck, and I’ll see you in my class.
