Having the option to check a box to place Smart Objects in a Photoshop file by resolution (not by dimensions) would be handy for something like the following: I want to use Smart Objects in Pattern Preview. My scans of things I illustrated (and edited in their respective files) are various sizes. This would make pattern creation faster and easier to use for some projects. Please consider this as an update. Thank you!

 

(Since there are some really old forum conversations about this topic with a lot of replies on current uses, to clarify: I'm not asking for an explanation for how to use the existing workflow; I'm asking for the ability to have a new option included in the workflow that respects resolution.)

[It wouldn't let me post this without a topic, but it didn't give me topics that made sense to choose from for some reason.]

Would it help if you used consistently sized, blank Smart Objects that you create ahead of time within your document? You could open such a blank, insert and resize your content, save and close the Smart Object.
