After updating the Smart Object, you can adjust all the effects by modifying the "Effects" layer smart filters, change the background color and make adjustments by changing the levels, brightness, hue, saturation, gradient map and more. The included PSD file has a resolution of 300 dpi with a dimension of 4800 x 3200 px in RGB color mode perfect to be used on your print or digital designs.
