I have several hundred files each one contains two jpg photos each. I would like to create a script to separate the photos and save them as separate jpg files. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

The following scripts are not intended or suitable for batch processing, so they would need to be run manually over each file (and you have "hundreds", so this isn't great).

I have only included these scripts in my initial reply for completeness.

 

I should have a script in my archive to work in batches, however, if I don't it shouldn't be too much work to adapt an existing script for you.

Are all of the layered files at the root/top level of a single folder?

 

Are all of the layered files in sub-folders under a main top-level folder?

 

How will the files be named? Something like: DocName_LayerName.jpg ?

 

Where will the files be saved? To a new folder on say the desktop? Or loose, alongside the original files, or in a new folder alongside the original files?

 

Do you wish to Save or Export > Save for Web?
