Linking Photoshop Files to Photoshop Files

You can link Photoshop files to each other using Smart Objects!

  • Create an empty Illustrator document.
  • Place a Photoshop file [A] into the illustrator document. Make sure to link the image, not embed it.
  • Save the Illustrator file.
  • Place the Illustrator file as a smart object into another Photoshop file [B].
  • Photoshop file [B] now has the Illustrator file embedded, which links to file [A].
  • Useful if file [A] needs to be placed and updated across multiple files.
