In March of 2009 my nephew, who was in the National Guard, was deployed to Iraq. We went to Milledgeville, GA for their send off. I took alot of photos but I think this one was the most telling one of them all. When I downloaded the images to my computer and saw this image I knew I had to do something with it. The image below is what I came up with and I posted it to my nephew’s Facebook page.
The wife of the man and girl in the photo saw it and requested a copy. I was more than happy to send it off for them to have while their loved one was overseas.

Smart Objects are layers that contain image data from raster or vector images, such as Photoshop or Illustrator files. Smart Objects preserve an image’s source content with all its original characteristics, enabling you to perform nondestructive editing to the layer.
The biggest advantage digital artists have over artists that use other mediums is the ability to go back and fix things with out having to start over. Smart Objects is a great tool in our powerful arsenal that allows us to do a whole lot very quickly without any fear of doing any irreversible damage.
