Export all layers with adjustment layer

Hi there!
I want to export all the layers of a PSD file to individual PNGs with transparency, but I have an adjustment layer on my top layer that I want every layer to be exported with.
I named all the layers so I want to keep the layer's names on the exported PNGs.
For example: The adjustment layer is the top layer. Second layer named X. When I expord the layer X, I want it to be marged with the top adjustment layer but still keep the original name on the PNG.
I have few hundreds layers so I need an automatic action to execute that result.
Any Ideas? 
Thanks in advance!

I haven't had time to check, but the following may do it:

 

https://github.com/Paul-Riggott/PS-Scripts/blob/master/Layer%20Saver%20Plus.jsx

 

or

 

https://github.com/Paul-Riggott/PS-Scripts/blob/master/Layer%20Saver.jsx

 

Otherwise, a custom script would do the job for you.

 

EDIT: I have just tested and both scripts will include the top adjustment layer into the saved results of the lower layers.

Use Layer Comps (Window > Layer Comps) and export them.

 

Layer Comps can retain visibility, positioning, appearance (layer style), and the Layer Comp selection for Smart Objects. Here's how you would set it up:

  1. In the Layers panel, turn on the visibility for the adjustment layer and just one layer, and turn off the visibility for the other layers
  2. In the Layer Comps panel, click the Create New Layer Comp icon
  3. You can leave all of the options selected in the New Layer Comp dialog
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 for the same adjustment layer except change the layer that remains visible until you make a layer comp for each combo
  5. Go to File > Export > Layer Comps to Files

I guess it actually helps to understand the question before responding.

 

1. Adjustment layer/s on top.

2. Layers to be exported below that.

3. Through some miracle, browse in the quick menu to Quick export to PNG

4. Export all the image layers with the adjustment layer applied.

 

Above person (Myra) did not understand the question.

 

So, in 2023, is this possible?

If the Layer Comps are set correctly, what Myra outlined works for what @yoavl96892818 asked about.

At that point you might as well just save each layer one by one maually. This doesn't save you any time when working with tens or hundreds of layers.
