Hello, does anyone knows how to make Adobe Photoshop exports a file everytime when I realease mouse button using brush tool? It means, I want to show step-by-step how I drew an image, so while I am drawing an image, and (for example,  did 45 clicks with Brush tool), I will have 45 exported files (showing the every step of my drawing, and it can be one png file for every click). So I think, maybe one script can do it, I have no idea how to make it, and wonder to find this solution here.

 

Thanks in advance.

I could not find an event for applying a brush stroke, so it does not seem possible to use Script Events Manager to link a Script (that creates a numbered png-copy) to the event. 

 

Hopefully someone else has a better understanding or idea.

In the JavaScript Tools Guide, there is an Event Handling for a MouseEvent object with mouseup. So, not with Script Events Manager, just using an Event Handler in a script, the script would be activated and then every time a mouse click was released the save function could be called.

 

Of course, scripting this is beyond me! 

 

Otherwise, a standard incremental save script could be used with a keyboard shortcut (I appreciate that this would tend to break the flow).

If using a tablet, may be able to bind the tip of the tablet to "Left click" and Control + V with an empty layer copied.

A little awkward, but maybe a viable scriptless solution.

I don’t understand that; ctrl-V is pasting, isn’t it?

I have found an app that record all steps and render it as a video (mov or mp4), but I need it into Photoshop, and export as PNG (the full artboard).

 

Thanks for all the replies, but I still looking forward on this solution.
