    Nicole great tip and cool simple technique. Thanks. When ever you get the time it would be cool to have you explain why if Smart Objects are so great , why isn’t that just the default? Sometimes I forget to bring in a pic as a SO and then I have to start over. Sorry for rambling. Hope the fun continues in Australia for you and Brian.
