How can I include a Photoshop file inside another Photoshop file?
If one was designing a website where they laid out each page mock as a separate photoshop file but each one had the common elements of the site such as the header and footer, but also could have common elements like buttonsâ€”is it possible to design the button in one photoshop file in its own and then include it inside a page mock file. Then if the content of the button psd file change it would automatically change in the page mock file.
Is this possible? Am I making sense?
You can look into using Adobe's 'Smart Objects'. Alternatively, consider FireWorks which has object templating abilities.
Even better, stop mocking up individual web pages in PhotoShop. It's a workflow nightmare and only causes headaches for the timeline. ;)
In Photoshop CC it is possible to link PSDs inside other PSDs.
