Nope, about 300. Still a lot so I'm looking for a way to batch it, so it won't take me like forever.

Then you appear to have given incomplete information.

2 to the power of 25 minus 1 is a lot more than 300.

I have 2 photoshop documents. Both have 10 layers that have to be combined with 15 other layers.

10 layers x 15 layers makes 150 combinations. Multiplied by 2 makes a total of 300.

My apologies if I have been incomplete.

Yep.

I have 2 PSD documents of stoves. Each document has 10 layers of grips (different colors) and 15 layers of doors  (different colors).

I have to export every possible combination of grip and door possible.

Did you maybe mean »every possible combination of X of the 25 layers«?

To illustrate here is a list of (edit: the 255) possible combinations of just 8 letters (»a« to »h«):

Hmm, don't really understand how that works. Looks like I still have to do a lot manually.

Found an extension called 'Oven'. Gonna give that a try first.
