I am creating a website in psd for final proof. I created split the file so there are basically 5 layers
And of course a LOT of sub layers inside each to create a page of the website.
Let's say I am working on PAGE 1 and have done perhaps 20 pages (seperate psd files with all the same information except the content layer is changed) and decide later on that I want to edit the HEADER layout. Now I have 20 psd files that I would have to edit all 20 to match the edit I did to the HEADER in the other psd file.
I basically am looking for a way to import seperate psd into 1 psd file
And then a PAGE 1.PSD which is simply a SHELL for page 1 of the website at the other files are IMPORTED similarily like FRAMES in html.
NOW.. I at first immediately thought SMART OBJECTS.. ah. but it doesn't appear to work in exactly how I need it.
With SMART OBJECTS. While I can have 1 page and PLACE the 4 psd files inside (header, footer, left, right) to create the layout, the SMART LAYERS are INDIVIDUAL
In otherwords, if I had PAGE1.PSD, PAGE2.PSD, PAGE3PSD all using the same PLACE feature to import the 4 layout regions, if I wanted to edit the header region I CANNOT simply edit HEADER.PSD and all the changes would be changed in all the PAGE1.PSD, PAGE2.PSD etc because it seems to save HEADER.PSD seperately INSIDE PAGE1.psd. Edit HEADER.PSD and nothing changes inside the PAGE1.PSD..
Basically when you double click a PLACED layer (ie. HEADER), save the edits, it only changes the HEADER SMART OBJECT INSIDE the PAGE1.PSD and NOT actually HEADER.PSD
Anyone able to HELP??
