Hello,

 

I have a multilayer PS file and I need to export different rectangle parts of the file in tiff format.

How can I create a specific selection and tell PS to export just this part ?

Many thanx.

Hi @jéromep16189127 

You have a couple of options that I can think of:

    • Copy, then paste to a new document and Save
    • Crop, then Save As
    • Create Slices with the Slice tool, then use Save for Web and Device to make each selection into it's own image. Tiff is not an option for web, so the images would need to be re-saved 
      https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/slicing-web-pages.html
    • Possibly a script would work. I am not a scripter, but I can edit your post to tag it for scripting so those who follow that tag will see this.

Thank you for your answers.

My problem was that I have an initial photo that I need to preserve (with the whole body of a model)  but I have to export a huge number of versions in another framing ratio.

 

Thanx a lot.

Jerome

Like jane mentioned this could be scripted based on frame positions stored as Channels, Paths, texts, …

 

Another option might be using Linked Smart Objects in the tiffs. 

If all the tiffs are open when saving the psd (or other file format) they would all update the Linked SO, otherwise one would have to open them after editing the placed file and update the linked content.

You can record simple action as already mentioned. Below is screenshot with action as example. My idea is to run action with selection active and layer with image selected. Action will copy content to clipboard, create new document, paste copied content, flatten to avoid layered file and because you do not need layers as I have understood, further action will open Save As dialogue to save image and lastly will close new document created just to use it for purpose. Here is action to check steps and how deed is done, if you have questions or problems just keep asking https://shared-assets.adobe.com/link/814e1ee6-c46c-45e5-4e73-066d6c6b0b0b

Note: when testing action you will see dialogue with Continue option which will remind you on condition which must be met in order everything to work as expected. If you want to use action exclude that step from playing or drag Stop step to trash can.

 

And here is how action steps should look like

action to export selected area.jpg

I overlooked that you have multilayered document. To test action please flatten document or select top most visible layer and press Ctrl + Alt + Shift + E to create new layer with composite image, select that layer, create selection then run action and repeat process with selection as many times as you want. Solution is to record Copy Merged step instead of Copy if you want to keep and use action.

 

And if you have many images with exactly same dimensions and you want to export exactly same frames... we can also help you to automate that process.

If you flatten your document, do it on a copy (you may already know this).
