How to use smart objects in SarahDesign mockup files.png

If you're viewing this video, then you've probably just purchased a file from my shop and you want to understand how to put your design into it. Well, today I’m going to show you how to do exactly that!

Prefer to read the instructions? No prob! Just scroll down for the transcript.

Make sure that your layer palette is showing.PNG

1) Make sure that your layers palette is showing.

Once you have opened the file in Photoshop, you will need to make sure that your layers palette is showing. To do this, click “Window”, and then make sure that there is a check mark beside “Layers”.

2) Edit the smart object.

Edit the smart object.

You should see your mockup on the first layer. Underneath that layer, there is a layer that says “Double Click Me”. So that's what you do! You go to the square thumbnail, double click that and that will open a .PSB tab in your Photoshop window. This is where you could add a different design, hide the design, or delete the design.

3) Save your work!

Save your work

Since there's an Asterisk up there in the .PSB tab, you know you have not saved your new design. You must save it for this to work. For a quick way to save, just hit command+s, or you could just go up to File > Save. Then you can go back to your main file and you can see your new design!

And that’s all there is to it!

If you have any questions, you can reach me through my Etsy, Creative Market, or SoFontsy shops. Or you can always contact me through this website. Also, let me know of any other sorts of mockups you may need! I am always taking suggestions on what kinds of mockups to create.

Thanks a lot! I hope you enjoy the file!
