Join Chris Converse for an in-depth discussion in this video Generating images from a layer, part of Design the Web: Adobe Generator for Graphics.
…Now the first thing I'm going to do, is go into the exercise files.…Let's get website-designs.psd, going to copy this to the desktop.…I'm going to do this because, once we…start letting Photoshop generate graphics, it's going to create…a folder, and I want you to be able to see the folder, that it generates.…Once this is copied, let's double click this and open this up in Photoshop.…And again, if you don't have access to the exercise…files, you can follow along with any layered Photoshop file.…Now the basic idea behind Adobe Generator, is that we…can take a layer inside of Photoshop, and rename the layer,…so that it matches a file name, and then Generator will…create a ready to use Web graphic on your hard drive.…
So renaming this layer, promo.jpg will generate a JPG file,…based on all of the data on that individual layer.…If we change the file name to end…in .png, this will generate a portable network graphic.…If we add a comma, then a space, then put a second file name.…Like promo.gif.…This will generate two graphics from the same, layer inside of Photoshop.…
