- [ Voiceover] Hi, I'm Chris Converse and in this course we're gonna explore a workflow for automating the creation of web graphics in Photoshop using data driven graphics. We'll start with standard text and art layers, and then we're gonna redefine those layers as variables inside of Photoshop. And once he have this set up, we'll create a simple data file to specify values for these variables. Theses values can be text, they can be a layer's visibility, and they can even specify a separate graphic that will then be imported back into our original Photoshop file. Now this workflow will allow us to generate hundreds or thousands of unique, customized graphics suitable for websites, interactive projects, or even print based projects.
So grab a layered Photoshop file, and let's get started.
