How would you specify which smart object to replace? Bridge doesn't have any insight into the PSD file beyond simple metadata (so it can't see the layer structure or smart objects).

One way would be to drag and drop a file onto the document/Smart Object layer in Photoshop from Bridge.

Yes, that would be a great way to handle updating a smart object. Better if it worked from the Finder and MiniBridge as well.

I would use the normal replace contents in Photoshop - but instead of using file open I would use bridge to select the file. This gives all the options of veiwing the files in Bridge.
