files to layers
on Sep 15, 2006 at 5:07:49 pm

Hi, i often have a folder with say 100 pics that I want to collect as layers in 1 psd document. Does anyone know how to automate this, so i dont have to open&select all©&paste&close 100 times

Best regards,
wtk

You can do this by recording an action. Your action needs to include:
select all
copy
close
paste

After you recorded your action create a new file to paste to, and use batch to run your action on a slected folder of input images.

Works perfect. Items do paste in center though, so works best with images of the same pixel dimensions.

I'll often just import into AE

Add all to a new comp

Choose Composition > Save as PSD layers

Cool, this works perfect too! Strange that they don't have this
inbuilt in PS too! Many thanks Richard!

Many thanks Mike, your action works great!
Finally, my computer works for me instead of the other way
around for a change! :-D
