Hello everyone, how to export only with layer name when 'export layers to files'. Its automatically adds prefix numbers. I just want to export only with layer names. I tried to change some scripts in Presets/Scripts/Layer Comps To Files.jsx " but it didn't work.

You can make the following edits to the "Export Layers To Files.jsx" script... Backup the original script just in case you need to revert!

 

From:

code1.png

To:

code2.png

 

In more detail...

 

Comment out (disable) the two lines as shown by adding a double forward slash //

 

Change –

 

fileNameBody += "_" + layerName;

 

To –

 

fileNameBody = layerName;

 

Restart Photoshop. Enjoy your layer names!

Alternative Options:

 

1) Use Adobe Bridge or another tool to Batch Rename the files, removing the unwanted text (unfortunately, this adds an extra step)

 

2) Right-click on selected layers in the layers panel and use "Export As" if you only need PNG/JPEG/GIF

 

3) Use alternative scripts:

 

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

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

 

Otherwise, one is left with editing the Adobe script, which as you have found is complex.

 

P.S. This isn't a bug.
