Make Slices work with Normal Export options

I don't understand why I still have to use a legacy export option (save for web) to use slices.

 

Why hasn't save for web been fully replaced after god knows how many years. 

 

I always use slices for exporting references from concept sketches, as it's easy to separate into individual images in a single export. I'm sure there's many other uses too. 

 

This is just another of the baffling things that has remained unupdated and thus kind of feels like more bloat instead of a cohesive well made program. Like I need this feature, but it's there as old baggage rather than brought up to the times.

 

So much of photoshop feels like this lately...

Alternative suggestion: Give us a "convert slices to artboards" thing or something. Cause creating artboards is not as easy as slices for my needs.

I realise that this is an idea/feature request. I have added my vote as Export As needs more attention from the devs.

 

As an alternative, there are scripts to create layers from slices (you can then use export as) and to save slices using Save As without needing to use Save for Web. This overcomes the imposed pixel input limitations in both Save for Web (8,192px) and Export As (15,000px).

 

Edit:

P.S. If you have evenly divided horizontal or vertical areas on the canvas, you can just crop using canvas size with a suitable anchor point, save/export, undo and repeat (forget about the slices). Easy enough to put into an action if you do this regularly.
