F E A T U R E S:

Replace warped smart content perfectly with the ”Edit Contents” mode

All warps--including perspective warp, all smart filters, all layer effects are applied to the replacement image, perfectly aligned in place of the original image.

Proportionally transform all smart layers with same content

Scans for other smart layers using the same content as the starting smart layer and relatively auto-scales them as well

Auto resize to crop, fit or custom size options

Additional size offset adjustment can be made. There's also a ”stretch to fit” option if keeping the aspect ratio is not an issue.

Horizontal and vertical alignment

Relative to the smart layer dimension, auto-align horizontally to left, center or right and vertically to top, middle or bottom.

Replace textures on 3D layers

With the 3D Layer add-on (sold separately) and the Job Queue add on (sold separately), replace more than one texture on a 3D layer or on another 3D layer.

Transparent image support

Transparent replacement images appear transparent in the export. There is also an option to have transparent areas trimmed out.

Use it on multiple smart layers

With the Job Queue add on (sold separately), before running the script, other replacement jobs can be set on other smart layers. This allows replacement of multiple mock up objects in a PSD.

Use the same replacement jobs on multiple PSD files

With the Job Targets add on (sold separately), one or more smart layer replace jobs can be run on a batch of Photoshop files, targeting same-name smart layer contents or whatever smart layers are available.

Export each layer comp separately

With the Job Queue add on (sold separately), any layer comps in the Photoshop file can be optionally exported separately, with the layer comp names appended to the exported file names.

Text Layer Replace Compatible

Replace text layers along with smart objects by using Text Layer Replace extension and the Job Queue add-on.

Different export file formats

Aside from JPG or just PSD, you can export to PNG, TIFF or WEBP.

Tile as pattern

Automatically generate a pattern out of your replacement images tiled according to alignment and scale settings.
