Note: If you use your Linux distribution's packaged version of Firefox, you will need to wait for an updated package to be released to its package repository.

However, to do this for a large number of files, you'd have to take even more steps.

In short, making changes to embedded Smart Objects across a large number of files is not an efficient process.

Invariably it's good to set things up so that when you update the file that holds the graphic, the update will "carry over" to all the other files that use it.This is because the original graphic and the embedded versions of the graphic are not linked.To get around this limitation in embedded Smart Objects, you would have to follow a process similar to these steps: This would replace the data in the photograph with the updated graphic.It means the persons uploading and downloading are going to spend several more minutes getting those tasks done.Now let's see how it's done with Linked Smart Objects.
