Designs for Smart Objects.
Any bitmap or vector graphic file with CMYK colour model can be used as a design for smart-objects. While creating mockups we work with natural materials having their own texture and structure, that’s why we can’t use RGB colour model. If you use photos, patterns or any content in RGB colour model, you should convert them to CMYK before pasting to smart-object.
Designs for effects layers.
Only layer with transparent background is suitable for placing objects that will contain embossing, hot stamping or gold embossing effects. Any vector or bitmap graphic file as well as text layer is suitable for pasting.
