Well, maybe you’re already familiar with Smart Object function in photoshop.
Yes, it’s a magical container that can hold images, vector graphics or any other complex set of layers. You can duplicate it many times within your file and one update will give changes to all instances. It’s really useful when you are working on design that use repeatable content and it will boost your design workflow effectiveness.
But did you know, there is a Photoshop plugin that will perform the similar task as smart object function do, but giving you more additional benefits?
Folks, please have a look at CanLinkIt and I’m sure you will love it.
I will say that it’s basically a Photoshop Smart Object with additional benefits : collaboration function and giving a smaller size to your .psd file.
Imagine that you can put your smart object as a file and let your teammate to update it while you are working on other aspect of the main design file.
When you are finished, with one click, all designs will be merged flawlessly.
Isn’t it great?
And, as the file size will decrease because the design elements stored in different files, now your photoshop will load faster. (Have you noticed that Photoshop can be slow with big files?)
