Auto-align and auto-blend are two great features of Photoshop. It would be really, really great if they worked on Smart Objects! After all, the smart objects can be aligned manually (including Lens Correction, Transforms etc. And of course they can be blended manually.

  • I am frustrated that so little has been added to Smart Objects since their introduction in CS2

Yes! It's a pain when doing any small compositing, to have to abandon the non-destructive editing.

This would be amazing has anyone figured out if there is a work around?

I got close with the "Load files into stack.." which allows you to align and create smart objects from your input files but after trying this with numerous file quantities I get left with only one single smart object file every time. So frustrating.

Any help or advice much appreciated here. This feature would save me sooo much time and hassle.

Auto blend would be highly useful for the layers in a smart object!
