Learn about using smart objects created in Illustrator and taking them into Photoshop and then Dreamweaver.

Share & Enjoy


 

  1. [...] Smart Objects are one of those features that I totally love in the Creative Suite. They allow you great ways to be able to share data among applications, and create some very interesting effects. I find myself using Smart Objects quite a bit when playing around in Photoshop, and more recently, i’ve been incorporating my Illustrator artwork into the Photoshop space. How exciting was it to see that Dreamweaver started letting you create Smart Objects inside of page for publishing. Too col! To that end, Geoff Blake has got a great tutorial going over a workflow that takes you from Illustrator into Photoshop, then out to Dreamweaver – all using Smart Objects.

    I am kind of disappointed since this feature introduced. Of-course it is good to have this kind of feature and pretty sure alot of user liked it very much. But what I discovered is this smart object is not smart enough. Why?
    Because it never stay vector art at the time of output, even though smart object is illustrator file. should be like Vector mask. I don’t know why Adobe don’t pay attention to this issue.

    Excellent tutorial!! Thanks.
    Can it be done in CS3? I tried to bring the .PSD into Dreamweaver and it wont bring it as a smart object making it unable to resink with changes. Not sure what I am missing.
    Any duidance will be highly appreciated.

    Hey Very Nice Tutorial! Thanks a bunch.

    One Question,

    I am trying to insert and overlay 3 smart object layers from Photoshop into Dreamweaver cs5. when I right clicked the layer in photoshop and exported it so that it had it’s separate .psd file everything worked flawless. But then when I tried to insert it into Dreamweaver as an image…Dreamweaver refused to recognize the .psd layer as an acceptable image file. Why is this?

    My goal is to have the entire photoshop file with all its separate layers as individual div tags…having them all be smart objects so they all sync when edited. Is this stupid? Is their an easier way?

    Thanks so much in advance!
