I really need to know where my smart object files are saved.

All I could found was a very old thread

https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop/file-locations-for-saving-smart-object-psb-files/m-p/231055...

This is not answering my question.

All I need to know is the path, where exactly smart object files are saved.

Please, someone, advise me how to find them step by step!

Thank you in advance.

If it's an embedded smart object, it's, well, embedded in the master file. Or anywhere else if it's a linked smart object.

 

When you open the smart object to edit it, it's temporarily stored in the system TEMP directory.

It was going right for me, the smart object files which i used to open for editing and save them.. they are not saved in TEMP folder in PC. They used to save in my defult folder from where i have opened my image and made it as smart object in a PSD file. And when i used to save them they would reflect in its original folder and after closing the smart object they would reflect on my psd file to. But from some days it's saves my smart object files in TEMP folder in pc....

Hoow can i solve this problem...???

Any solution for this ??

Please help

I don't understand your question.

With embedded smart objects, double click to open the smart object as a psb file - edit it and then Save (Crtl+S) and close (note that was Save not Save As).

 

With linked smart objects double clicking opens the linked document. Edit it and Save (again not Save As or Save a Copy either of which will not update the link)
