When you are happy with the colour click Ctrl+S to save the colour. this will automatically change the original mock up.


6- Click back on your original mock up. You will see the handle is now the new colour.


7- Select the logo smart object in the layers palette. Double click on it to edit.


8- The new workspace will open with the current mock up. Go to File in the top tool then Place Embedded. This will open a new window.


9- In the new window, find the file you would like to use. Once you find it select Place.


10- The new image will appear over the original one in the workspace. Double click on the new image and this will make it a smart object.


11- Now your new image is a smart object, go to the layers palette and uncheck the little eye in the original logo layer. This will make the original logo become not seen. (it is still there but Photoshop makes it invisible unless we select it again.
