Copy paste to a new layer (and turn off visibility if you don't want to see it). Or save out to a new file.

Not sure what exactly you want to ask. If you want to save what is inside selection as a new or separate file do the following:

 

  1. After creating selection right click and choose Layer via Copy or Ctrl + J to duplicate what is inside selection to a new layer.
  2. Right click on new layer with copied content and choose: Quick Export As PNG (or other format chosen in preferences) or click on Layers panel menu and choose exporting option.

Here’s another method:

1. Choose Image > Crop. This crops the image to your selection.

2. Choose File > Save a Copy. This creates a separate file containing only the selected area of the image.

3. Choose Edit > Undo twice, or back up two steps in the History panel. This is a safety step to not permanently crop the original image. If you do want to permanently save the cropped version, skip this step.

 

If this is something you need to do often, those three steps are simple enough that could create an action (macro) for them in the Actions panel, so that you could run it in one click.

Yes, this would work and seems to be the only way to go forward. I wnated to use this in action hence wanted to avoid undo option as the action will be run on batch processing

You can avoid the undo steps by having the action close the original file without saving, in step 3.

 

If you need to repeat the same selection on every image, you can record the Rectangular Marquee Transform Selection set to Fixed Size, and then use Select > Transform Selection to position it in the action using X/Y coordinates in the options bar. If all images are the same size, you could just save the selection as a channel and load it for each image.

Instead of giving us your specs piecemeal after each of our answers, is there anything else we need to know so that we can better assist? This is what I see so far:

  • I made a selection on an image layer.
  • i want to batch process, i won't work
  • I want to save in PSD
  • I ... wanted to avoid undo
