Hi everyone, I have a very large document with a lot of pictures, and I need to export every single photo in that document but they all need to be exported with a gradient layer on top. 

Can I do a batch export without merging every photo with that gradient layer?

 

thank you

Could you please post screenshots with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Options Bar, …) visible to clarify the Layer/gradient structure?

The gradient layer is the one named "scrim"

You'll need to create an action or script that adds the gradient layer and then exports your file.

Maybe put Scrim gradient as first top layer of NBA layerSet and then if that possible make action to select that layerSet and then 7 times select backward layer using default ALT & [. Finish the action by exporting and then deleting the current layerSet. Then you can batch it. When all layerSets of your NBA layerSet will be deleted by batch you will get error message, but your layerSets should be already exported with gradient if I'm right.
