Place loads the file as a Smart Object within the existing PSD document that you have open.

Open as Smart Object loads the files as a Smart Object in a new PSD document. You would have to then duplicate the Smart Object into the PSD containing your design.

From what I can tell, the only difference is that Place saves you the step of having to duplicate it into your existing PSD document. Although there may be other advantages of which I am not currently aware.

OK, that's sensible.

You know I only really need to open a logo from a file when it's not in your shapes files. I recall you telling someone once that you make them in Illustrator, so I presume they contain vector info. I guess now that PS rasterizes the shape as soon as I finish sizing it? It would be in my best interest then to size it the best I can the first time (or a bit large) because once I let go of the mouse it becomes a raster image so I can only reduce it without any quality loss.

Boy am I ever getting smart here, eh?

My Favorite Cover Designer:

Yes Shapes are vector based, but to use the vector info you need to use the option shape layer, this will create a shape layer, that when you resizes uses the vector info and doesn't loose quality.

If you set it to fill pixels , it will raterize the shape and you can't upscale it once you make it smaller 8834.gif

Great job explaining Kernie thumb.gif thumb.gif

On a side note:

You should always use the place option when importing vector EPS files in PS, otherwise the vector data will get lost.
If you just simply open a vector EPS, PS will convert it to raster when opening. (you can increase the resolution of the eps, and thereby the quality when opening, but it will always be raterized)


You can do it this way, but keep in mind you can only scale DOWN your image and never scale it up without data los
as kernie explained 8824.gif

Most of what you guys are talking about goes over my head, but it is still interesting to read it, so thank you for the explanations you have provided, one thing I can take from this thread is the above, that really explains something to me I have long wondered about, cheers guys 8834.gif

It's all uphill til you get to the top
