We can scale and resize the container, apply transformations, warps and distortions, and even apply Photoshop”s filters to a smart object, all without any loss in quality and without making a single permanent change to the layer inside it.

We can make multiple copies of a smart object, all displaying the same content, and then edit or even replace the content and have our changes instantly appear in each and every copy. This makes smart objects perfect for creating reusable templates! We”ll look at different ways to use smart objects throughout this series of tutorials.
