Scripts are a more advanced form of actions, as they are created with programming languages. They allow Adobe Photoshop to perform very complex tasks. Can you export multiple layers? In this video, Richard Harrington walks through exporting multiple layers from an image in Adobe Photoshop.
- Sometimes you'll build a layered Photoshop file…and then decide you want to export all the layers.…Maybe it's because you're going…to animate them using a video production tool…or a motion graphics tool.…Or maybe you've just made several different designs…and you want to spit out the pieces…to bring into Keynote or PowerPoint.…Well, here's how you can do it.…Let's open up this file here from Folder 3.4.…And in this case, I put a bunch…of different backgrounds in one file.…I was experimenting with different painted textures…and I was making some backgrounds for slides.…
What I can now do is easily export all those.…File, Export, Layers to Files.…If you're using an older version of Photoshop,…this might be in the Scripts menu.…When I choose File, Export, Layers to Files,…it brings up a dialog very similar to the Scripts menu.…You can decide what type of files to write.…For example, if you had embedded transparency,…choosing a PNG-24 would allow that transparency…to be stored in each layer.…
Same holds true for making individual Photoshop files.…
