Is there a way to swap out one linked smart object in Photoshop CC 2014


Question

I have multiple images using the same linked smart object, but I need to make changes to some individual images and want to link it to a new linked smart object. At the moment if I change one out, it changes out all linked smart objects that had the same name. Is there a way to duplicate a linked smart object as a new smart object so I can swap it out without effect other linked smart objects with the same name?

Thanks in advance!

In the Layers palette, click the right mouse button on the Smart Object and from the context menu choose "New Smart Object Via Copy".
