The smart object is a container designed to hold the layer’s contents. This container protects its content from harm. Users of the container can resize and scale it as per their needs. They can also apply warps, distortions, transformations and filters of the Photoshop to the smart object devoid of compromising the quality and making a permanent change to the layer inside it.

There are different techniques used to make several copies of the smart object and display the same content, edit or replace such content and let such changes appear in all copies or any copy. All these favourable things associated with the smart objects encourage many professionals to use smart objects in Photoshop CC and enhance their project work further.
