Mockup Help - Can't Seem to Achieve Result

Hi there 🙂 

 

I have downloaded some square box mockups for tea packaging, and have successfully used them in Photoshop with my design. I have created three designs using individual square box mockups with no issues. The last one is using a mockup with three boxes instead of one. When I paste my design into the layer as a 'smart object' (as normal), the design shows up on all of the boxes instead of just the one.

 

For example, when I paste into the layer for "left box-left side" the design shows up on the left side of all three boxes. Can anyone help me figure out what's happening? I have been using mockups several times and never experienced this. 

 

I greatly appreciate any advice! ☺️

Hi   @Sophie24946194l4bi

 

It sounds like you copied the first Smart Object to make the other two.  If you don't want edits to a Smart Object to be reflected in copies of a Smart Object, you need to use New Smart Object via Copy after right clicking the original Smart Object layer.

Good luck.

Have you tried just opening the art in question not as a smart object and just placing it as a layer where you want it.

Hmmm...  I think I can claim a prize for the most times Smart Object was used in a single sentence.
