Hi,

 

I was hoping someone could tell me if there was a way of doing what I've mentioned in the title. I've just found the Export Layers to Files feature and it could save me a lot of time in my workload but I've done a test and when running the process it saves all of the tiffs with a white background even though the layers themselves had transparency. Is there any way around this?

Make a backup of the original "Export Layers to Files.jsx" script in your Photoshop's ...Presets/Scripts folder.

 

You can comment out // or delete the following line:

I have not given this edit exhaustive testing (content that extends off the canvas etc).

Thanks for the tip. I've tried this and it doesn't seem to have made a difference, it's still adding a white background to the images unfortunately.

It worked for me... Did you restart Photoshop after editing the script?

Hi,

 

To reply to your other reply, I'd restarted photoshop and still no luck. However Layer Saver has worked for me! Thanks a lot for helping, it'll come in really handy for me.
