Layer effects like Bevel & Emboss already existing on Smart Objects

Hello. I thought there was support for using the effects inside the layer styles feature of Photoshop such as Bevel & Emboss and Color Overlay which are already existing on Smart Objects.
However after testing a Photoshop file with smart objects which have such effects, seems like they are not being rendered.
(It’s a group with a nested group and finally the smart object layer, this way multiple effects can be used that all blend with each other)

Hello,

Could you please provide the PSD file and the code that is used for the opening and manipulation?

Thank you.

Here is the code:

private string CreateTempPsd (string sourceArtPath)
{
  string tempPsdPath = Path.GetFullPath("TEMP.psd", OUTPUT_DIR);
  Bitmap img = new Bitmap(sourceArtPath);
  var imageHeight = img.Height;
  var imageWidth = img.Width;

using (var image = new PsdImage(imageWidth, imageHeight))
{
	using (var stream = new FileStream(sourceArtPath, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read, FileShare.ReadWrite))
	{
		Layer? layer = null;
		try
		{
			layer = new Layer(stream);
			image.AddLayer(layer);
		}
		catch (Exception e)
		{
			if (layer != null)
			{
				layer.Dispose();
			}
			throw new Exception(e.Message);
		}
	}
	image.Save(tempPsdPath);
}
return tempPsdPath;
}

// In a main method:
// https://forum.aspose.com/t/working-with-smart-objects/222153
using (PsdImage image = (PsdImage)Aspose.PSD.Image.Load(completeTemplatePath, new 
PsdLoadOptions() { LoadEffectsResource = true }))
{
List<Layer> layersOfInterest = new List<Layer>();

for (int i = 0; i < image.Layers.Length; i++)
{
	var layer = image.Layers[i];
	if (layer is SmartObjectLayer)
	{
		layersOfInterest.Add(layer);
	}
	int counter = 0;
	if (layer is LayerGroup)
	{
		Layer finalLayer = layer;
		while (finalLayer is LayerGroup && (finalLayer as LayerGroup)!.Layers.Length > 0 && counter < 1000)
		{
			finalLayer = (finalLayer as LayerGroup)!.Layers[0]; // * First non-group layer in a layer group.
			counter++;
		}
		if (finalLayer is SmartObjectLayer)
		{
			layersOfInterest.Add(finalLayer);
		}
	}
}

layersOfInterest.ForEach(layer =>
{
	if (layer is SmartObjectLayer)
	{
		SmartObjectLayer smartObjectLayer = (layer as SmartObjectLayer)!;
		string? foundInstructionArtForLayer;
		imageMapMockupInput.LayerNameArtDictionary.TryGetValue(layer.DisplayName, out foundInstructionArtForLayer);
		if (foundInstructionArtForLayer != null)
		{
			string artFilePath = Path.GetFullPath(foundInstructionArtForLayer, UPLOADS_DIR);
			FileInfo fileInfo = new FileInfo(artFilePath);
			if (!fileInfo.Exists)
			{
				throw new Exception($"File was not found at: {artFilePath}");
			}

			string tempPath = CreateTempPsd(artFilePath); // This is only way I could get image to load: make a PSD file and add a PNG image as layer, then replace S.O. with the PSD.

			using (var img = Aspose.PSD.Image.Load(tempPath))
			{
				(layer as SmartObjectLayer)!.ReplaceContents(img);
				(layer as SmartObjectLayer)!.UpdateModifiedContent();
			}

		}
	}
});

//image.SmartObjectProvider.UpdateAllModifiedContent();

string outPath = "root/directory/some-path.png";
image.Save(outPath, new PngOptions() { ColorType = PngColorType.TruecolorWithAlpha });

}

Hello,

Provided code can no de compiled because of imageMapMockupInput. Could you please provide the full source code.

Anyway, I have some quick answers before I get full source code:

  1. To render Layer Effects you you should Load PSD Image with the following code(In some snippets you use this property):

    var psdOptions = new PsdLoadOptions() { LoadEffectsResource = true };
    using (var img = Aspose.PSD.Image.Load(tempPath, psdOptions))
    {

    }

  2. Aspose.PSD supports Stroke Effect but doesn’t support Bevel & Emboss. Support will be added later. You can track this issue by the following ids: PSDNET-506, PSDNET-263

  3. Layer Effects in the Smart Object can not be rendered. Ability to pass LoadEffectsResource = true property in Smart Object will be added soon. You can track this issue by the id PSDNET-834.

Thank you.

Ok it’s good to know it will be in the works. I think Color Overlay effect is also working.
The source code for the image mockup input is:

	public class ImageMapMockupInput
{
	public Dictionary<string, string> LayerNameArtDictionary { get; set; } = new Dictionary<string, string>();
	public string? TemplatePath { get; set; }
	public string? OutputName { get; set; }
}
