How to separate labels from a template?

I kinds sorta clunk my way around PS-- have the latest version installed.   I am an expert at Photoshop Elements so that helps a bit. 

I bought a template set of labels to practice with.  I understand layers.  I can fully edit the labels.

Is there a relatively simple way to isolate / group all the parts of one of the labels and export / create a new psd file with just the label I just edited? 2022-11-19_164743.png

@Glenn 8675309 – Try the following script:

 

File > Export > Layers to Files... and tick the Trim Layers checkbox.

  I've been strugglin' with this:  I dont' see a "trim layers" checkbox anywhere, plus, I see this, regardless of what I check or set up.   I've looked in other simliar discussions and some had issues because there was a layer locked, typically a background layer.    I do as you suggested, the script runs and I always get this warning.  2022-11-20_034400.png

The trim layers will appear if you choose a file format that accepts transparency, like PNG

See below:

One way to choose what to export in this scenario is to make the layers you don't want exported as hidden. (visible layers only)

I wasn't aware of that, thank you.   I will give it a try.

I was hoping to automate the creation of separate psd files for each label using previous suggestions--- this way is a bit clunky but seems to work ofr me right now.

PNG supports transparency, but it does not support layers and is not a good choice here.

I know 🙂 I was just adding some clarification for the "trim layers" option.

I hadn't thought about that, thanks. I'm pretty happy clunking through the labels. 
Almost makes it look like I know what I'm doing.

If there is one Label per Group, then perhaps a script like Layer Saver from here will work for you:

(Layer Sets are the same as Groups)

https://github.com/Paul-Riggott/PS-Scripts

 

The Layer Saver.jsx would go in

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2023\Presets\Scripts

 

then in photoshop it would be under

File>Scripts>Layer Saver

I will dive into this during the next few days-  thanks.   I did purchase this tempate set to practice and learn from- I knew it would be a struggle for me, but that's part of the learning process.
