Smart Objects In Pse 12 (And 11?)
Posted 30 October 2013 - 10:33 PM
I upgraded from PSE 10 to PSE 12 this week and am confused about a change in behavior. I create a large blank document (3600x3600 pixels, scrapbook size) and then drag other items onto it to create new layers. In PSE10, the items I dragged in kept their original size. In PSE 12, they get resized to match the size of the document I'm dragging them on to. Is there a setting I need to change? Can't find it.
The response I got was:
For a few versions, including PSE 10, dragging up from the photo bin placed things as smart objects. In PSE 12 it places them normally, the same way a paste would do. If you want to duplicate the PSE 10 behavior, use file>place instead of dragging.
What is happening in PSE 12 is, when I dragged an embellishment from the photo bin onto my page, it would resize huge and cover the whole page. That didn't happen in PSE10.
I normally work by pulling a bunch of embellishments into my photo bin and then dragging them in. moving them around. To use file>place I have to find each one in its folder as I want to use it. This seems WAY harder to me.
I realize not many are on PSE 12, but I'm hoping PSE 11 works the same way and someone can help me. Can I place an embellishment as a smart object from a file I've already opened in PSE? Is there an easier way than going through the File menu?

My Gallery I scrap with Photoshop CS6, but can help with older versions: PS7, CS2 & CS4.
