Photoshop Smart Object Updating in Adobe CS5 Dreamweaver

If you’ve added original Photoshop (PSD) files in your Adobe Creative Suite 5 (Adobe CS5) Dreamweaver page, you can update the original file. Dreamweaver creates a Smart Object, an image that maintains a connection to the original Photoshop file from which it was created.

Select the image and locate the Original text field in the Property inspector, this field displays the location of the original Photoshop file. To edit the image, you can simply click the Edit in Photoshop button on the right side of the Property inspector to open the source file in Photoshop.

If you make changes to the original Photoshop file, the image you placed in the page displays a red-and-green arrow icon to let you know that it isn’t up-to-date.

To update a Smart Object when you see its indicator, select the image and click the Update from Original button on the Property inspector to apply the new changes to the image places in your page.

Moving the original PSD file connected to a page image displays an alert icon on the image and disables the link between the two. Keep original PSD files in a set location and be sure to revise the location of your source file by selecting the image and updating the original in the Property inspector.
