I have an image which I have sliced, 
Is there a method to import the slices back into photoshop and in their correct positions and ideally into individual layers.

Many thanks

You can try this: File > Scripts > Load Files into Stack.

 

then adjust the Canvas Size to the original Image size. Then Place the single slices.

 

Hope, this helps.

Hi there,

Thanks for reaching out. 

Would you mind sharing a few details, how did you create these slices?
Where and in what format are these saved? Are they arranged in a systematic order?
Are you looking to import all the pieces in a single PSD file to get the complete image?

We're here to help, just need more info.

Thanks,
Ranjisha

Hi Ranjshe

I have the original image still so can start with a different approach of required.

I set up my guide, sliced to guides and exported in legacy as jpgs.

If I reimport as layers they all come back as layers but all in the same space, so basically I have a stack of layers ontop of each other. Resizing the canvas and moving each layer would be a nightmare as there would be a lot of slices to line up.

I am doing this as an art project and wish to edit certain slices, then finally export all as one image with edited tiles.
An alternative method I was seeking was to slice the image up and have it in layers without the need to export/import but as yet drawn a blank on that one.

Then use a script to cut up your images onto layer,  You can use menu View>New Guide Layout. To lay out a grid of guide lines then use a script to dice up your Image onto layers.  You will have you Originale uncut Image layer and your image diced up in layers above your image.
