Hey, I'm trying to test PE in use as mockup tool. I bought a lot of mockup files to put my designs into, but looks like using of Smart Objects doesn't work as in regular Photoshop.
Also, on tutorials on YT, they use "paste into selection" command but I have it inactive all the time I work on Smart Object.
Is it possible to work with such elements at all? :)

Sorry Patryk, editing Smart Objects are not supported Elements. You can convert the smart object to regular layers and edit them in Elements.

Thanks for reply Jeffrey!
Sad to hear it. Do you maybe know which older Photoshop in box version supports Smart Objects?

It depends. Cs6 was the last version and was released 6 years ago. Note, older versions aren't for sale and aren't supported any longer.

OK, but do you think that SO evolved since CS6? I mean the simple use it with jpg/png which I put into mockup.
