Hey Guys,

 

I searched for an answer but couldn't find what i'm looking for.  I'm trying to export a large psd, and i'm kind of tired of writing individual files names out.

 

I'm looking for script that will export layers according to the layers and group names.

So if i export this the files names will look like

 

group1_index_red_c.png

group1_index_red_b.png

group1_index_red_a.png

group1_index_green_a.png

group1_index_green_b.png

 

group2_index_purple_a.png

group2_index_green_a.png

group2_index_green_b.png

 

something like this.

 

as a bonus it would be nice to export only visible and/or selected layers too.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Make these changes in the standard "Export Layers To Files.jsx". Shown in red. The file is taken from CS6.

I suspect Scripts along those lines may be available, what have you found so far? 

How familiar are you with JavaScript in general and Photoshop AM-code in particular?

As of now I found this one

Photoshop-Export-Layers-to-Files-Fast

Does what i kind of need but doesn't have the folders to file name option.  But i like how it saves indiviual layers to it's layer name.  and has the option to only save visible layers only.

 

Then i found this script which does partially what i need too

Automate file naming according to Group name in Photoshop

but i saves only the group name as a file and merges all the layer in that group as a single file.  Which i don't need.  It also can't do a multi-group files.  So it can't do multi folder "group1/index/"  as group1_index_a.png

 

In the meantime i'll keep searching.  I can't script a little but never did javascript so it might take a while.

 

Thanks

I downloaded the script from GitHub, but still feel a bit unclear on how to set it up with the directions they provided. Could you help me? Thanks!

This works thanks!

 

It is a bit slow since it cycles through every layer and folder per image, in a 70+ group psd.  But i'll take it!

 

Thanks!
