Join Chris Converse for an in-depth discussion in this video Using defaults to automate transformations, naming, and folder creation, part of Design the Web: Adobe Generator for Graphics.
- [Voiceover] Defining document defaults for Adobe Generator…lets you create a series of images with custom names…and directories without having to coordinate…all of the names of individual layers.…To demonstrate this, I'm going to start with…our website design, and inside of here I have…five different layers that are named after file names,…so Generator will create graphics.…We have our logo.png, banner.jpg, and we have…three jpg files for our promos.…Over here in our assets directory,…we can see all of those five graphics.…Now, what I would like to do is create multiple sizes…of these graphics and put them into separate folders.…
But instead of going through each individual layer…and adding the exact same file name or adding…transformations, such as 50 percent or 200 percent,…we're going to do all this with a layer called "Default".…I'm going to select my topmost layer here.…Come down to the Layer menu, come down and choose New Layer.…We're going to name this "Default".…Click OK, then I'm going to drag this to the very top.…
