Dreamweaver CS4 Smart Objects

One of the more impressive new features in Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 is the ability to work with Smart Objects between Dreamweaver and Photoshop.
It’s now possible to import a fully layered, fully editable Photoshop file into Dreamweaver. Dreamweaver will help compress the file by comparing different format choices. And if changes are made to the original Photoshop document, Dreamweaver CS4 will recognize them and ask you if you want to automatically update the embedded file. Very cool stuff.

    Guys, The videos are nice, but de sound volume is too low, even on the higher level.

  • kirk says:

    Nice, except the update didn’t take into account the new size, so distorted it.

  • Quin says:

    Can’t hear the tutorial

  • Patricia May says:

    cant hear the video, very disappointing!

  • Pamela Swanson says:

    please make the sound louder and the picture larger

    I’ve been using smart layers/ objects ever since they came in CS2. They’re great as they allow non-destructive and resolution-independent editing of images. 😀
    About time Dreamweaver supports them too, definately gonna use it!

    I like the Canadian way of saying “mouse” – had me cracking up! Now I’d better go back and watch this thing again…

    Good info here, the author is obviously very comfortable with the product. Nice windows/mac talk. You made it easy for a novice to understand. Might want to consider loading the video in with maximizing ability so that users can see the “mouse” point and the icons easier etc.

    Thanks for your work.
