Does anyone know: do smart objects work the same way as editing in LR, where the edits are commands stored in a separate XMP file so that your underlying RAW file is never changed? Sounds like Adobe took that from LR and built it into PS?
I don't edit in PS very often (I have the CC version but really haven't started to learn how to use it). My workflow (if I can dignify what I do with such a term) is to import everything into LR, figure out which photos I want to work on, edit in LR, then if I think PS would be useful (mostly so far only for content aware fill to get rid of stuff) I use "edit in PS" and create a Tiff from the photo (with the LR edits) for that purpose. Sound like I should edit the LR adjusted photo as a smart object in PS. If I understand correctly, that would just be adding further commands to the XMP file and I wouldn't end up with so many versions of the same photo. Does this make sense to anyone?
OK, I have some tutorials to watch. Thanks for the links.
