  • How to place a smart object in photoshop without it being linked

    Hi guys,
    I'm applying logos to application images within photoshop.
    I am copying vector logos from a single illustrator file then pasting them into my psd.

    Every time I reopen the psd, it says the smart object is not linked. This is driving me crazy.

    Is there a way to just copy and paste the smart object into the psd and have it be part of the psd as opposed to referencing wherever I copy/pasted it from?

    Thank you!

      How does it work with resizing a vector object in photoshop that has been converted to pixels?

        After you hit that OK button, the vector graphic will be pasted in a bounding-box equipped with control handles. THIS IS YOUR ONE CHANCE to transform it while it is still in vector form. After sizing, etc., tap Enter or double-click to commit, at which time the graphic in its current transform state will be rasterized on its new layer at the established resolution of the Photoshop canvas.

        If you want to preserve its vector construct, you must paste it as a Smart Object, and then figure out a better way to manage the linkage. I'm not sure why you're getting that broken link message.

          Oltek?
          is what I got, with a neat icon.
          Maybe Ooltek, but the V never registered. Too different from the rest of the logo font I'm guessing.

          As per my opinion don't change brand name. Because through brand people know you. Brand name makes you popular and brings new customers for your business.

          well, 933px width on the footer looks off. My QA guys would give me hell about 'outline:0'. And there's some weird crap happening with error messaging in the map.
