How can I use the same smart object several times in the same PSD


Question

I am using a smart object in my PSD file that I duplicated 3 times. But when I update the smart object by saving the others don't change.

The objective is when I update one smart-object the others will be automatically change.

From Photoshop Help / Work with Smart Objects

Duplicate an embedded Smart Object

In the Layers panel, select a Smart Object layer, and do one of the following:

  • To create a duplicate Smart Object that is linked to the original, choose Layer > New > Layer Via Copy, or drag the Smart Object layer to the Create A New Layer icon at the bottom of the Layers panel. Edits you make to the original affect the copy and vice versa.

  • To create a duplicate Smart Object that isn’t linked to the original, choose Layer > Smart Objects > New Smart Object Via Copy. Edits you make to the original don’t affect the copy.

A new Smart Object appears in the Layers panel with the same name as the original and “copy” as a suffix.
