@vnTriNguyen  – There was a very basic error in my previous script, the canvas size was updating using the first doc size, when it should have been looping over each new doc size and adding that. I didn't spot this error as my test files were all square and the same height. Please try this new 1.2 update, I have tested it and it works as you require: /* Vertical Stacker.jsx https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop-ecosystem-discussions/script-help-export-merge-many-picture-into-one/td-p/1301...

You are indeed correct, I built the script using square images, however, I never tried it with varying height images. I'll need to rework the code...

        }

    })();

} else {
    alert('Please close all open files before running this script...');
}

 

Note: This code doesn't use smart objects. It is easy enough to "cheat" and add code to create a smart object for each layer, however, that is not the same as placing the original files to create a smart object layer. This may or may not be a critical difference for you.
