How to Package Your Photoshop File to Include Linked Images

Hi there. This video is all about packaging files. What is packaging files? It means that I've got fonts that are included in this PSD that I've made, there's also images that are linked to it. If I send them just the PSD, they're gonna open it and it's gonna say, hey, I'm missing some of the linked images like this image here, it's also going to say I'm missing some of the fonts. We're going to fix that with Photoshop package feature, which is perfect for exporting images. Not so good for fonts, but I'll show you a little hack using illustrated to get the fonts as well. Alright, let's get started. Alright. To get started in your 17 exporting folder. There is a psd in there called final artwork. Open that up. Now. I've made this quite small just to keep the file sizes down in your exercise files and I want to show you the different things that happen. So file packaging is pretty easy. We'll go to file and we go to a package, let's get that out of the way where you gonna put it? I'm gon...

na put mine in my desktop to make it nice and messy and it's going to click choose. And what it will do is that we use the name of your file? Final artwork. That's the Kiss of Death. Calling anything final. But anyway, okay, let's look at our desktop and you can see their final artwork folder gets generated for you. Okay, So it names the folder for you, puts a copy of the PSD there and any links that have been used. So what are the links? Let's have a look. So, in my files here, I've got a bunch of different things. So I'm going to make this a bit bigger so we can see. So this Blueberries image here is not, it doesn't have any little icon here and you'll notice that in my exports, it didn't appear. So I've got that image and I've got the background. Why did I only get those two? Because down here the background is actually a creative cloud libraries image. So I did this. I went to my libraries and went here. It is there and I drag this out. Okay. And because it's connected to my library and not actually embedded in this document when I go to package includes it. Something similar happened to this option here. Can you see this one here when I brought this image in I went file and instead of using place embedded, I used place linked. You can see the little linking. Ike on there. So it's linking to my hard drive. So it gets included in the package. But there's lots of other things that didn't say this um splash here that was just embedded in the document. It's a smart object, which is cool, but it is not included in the package because it's actually embedded in here and it was either copied and pasted in here or use the file in bed. So you've got three options. You can just leave it the way it is and have some of them embedded some of them not. So that your package document is a bit of both. You could go through and say actually there's banana here. I want to link it. Okay to do it, you can right click it and you can say convert to linked and basically they just say where you want to put the banana. I stick mine on my desktop randomly messing up the desktop and now it is linked to that file called banana now to be included in my package. So I've got some consistency. It also makes the PSD but smaller in terms of file size because it's not included in here. It's just linked. Alternatively I could go through and say actually I don't want all these linked to its going to right click them and say embed this link, I'm going to embed this one and then nothing will be included in that package and you won't need to go file package at all. One of the things you didn't see appear in there was fonts okay. For some reason Photoshop does not package out the fonts. I can't make it happen. I've tried my darndest adobe illustrator and in design do but Photoshop doesn't yet but there is a trick to get the fonts out but there's a few conditions that need to be met and pretty much this file here breaks all of them. What you can do is open up in illustrator and then use its file package and it will pull the fonts out. Why won't it work with this document? It won't work with any layer that has a layer style and Al Qaeda has a drop shadow. I'm gonna click clearly hairstyle. The other thing that won't happen is that see this r here, it has a drop shadow but if I delete the drop shadow but it's still behind this splash. Okay, It's not gonna work. I'm going to save this file here And let's go into illustrator. Let's open up that file, exercise file 17 final artwork. I just want to make sure convert layers to objects is on click. Ok. And what you'll notice here is that this font here? Okay. It gets converted to actual editable text, Photoshop illustrator work together. And they say, well, I'm just going to remake this in the font. Perfect. That'll get included when I export. What won't happen. And see this are back here, zoom in on it. Okay, We see the text here is perfect vector zoom in lovely. But let's look at this. Arab here because it's all behind this. It's been smushed and turned into pixels. So it just doesn't get exported. So if you're just looking to get the fonts out? You might have to do some like hacking just to get this are up on the top. No drop shadow. Just so that illustrator can go through and pull all the fonts out. The other thing that won't happen is I put another font and if I pick a type kit, fonts say let's use this one here. Adele because it's a type kit font. Adele, This TK font. It's not going to work this one here though. It's Ariel. It could be anything as long as it doesn't have t k next to it. The O type fonts open. Type will work but tts will work. But not the type kit you are only allowed to use type cake because you pay for your credit card license and if the other person on the other side has a creative cloud license, the fonts will go with it. Perfect if they don't they're not allowed to have them. So let's say we've got this far, it's gotta file, it's in the same sort of place it's called package Where am I going to stick it? I'm gonna save this document. Where am I going to save it onto my desktop? I'm gonna make a folder called packaging example. Man's getting messy. Stick that in there. So I need to save it first. And then though when I got a package, I'm just going to make sure I include the fonts, you can see it won't let me have type kit fonts. It says, hey, be careful about the restrictions of fonts you say. Don't worry I will now on my desktop? There's packaging example, there's my final artwork and where did I see the package you're going to? I did not check that file package. I put mine in a weird folder. Let's stick it on a desktop inside that lovely new folder we made. Make sure the fonts are included, do it twice. All right. There is there there's the ai file which I don't really need because I've got all the images out of Photoshop. But there's the area that I used pulled out of your hard drive ready to be sent on to the next person. Bit of a hack might not be worth the time and effort, but you also might be desperate to get the funds out. But remember no layer styles, no type kit fonts. Make sure they're at the top of your layer group. And use file package. We use illustrator. Just get the fonts and we use Photoshop to get all the linked images, combine them together. We have a completed package file you might be watching in the distant future. They might just have fonts in Photoshop. Just check first. Hasn't been there forever so far. So you might get lucky and they might update that. You might not have to do this kind of hacked version. Alright, that's it for this video packaging. I'll see you in the next video

Great class, but outdated PS version. It was confusing sometimes. Some tools are not in PS anymore and more tools have been added which is not included in the course.
