Batch processing multilayered files with a consistent background in Photoshop
on Aug 14, 2008 at 11:58:34 am

Hi everyone!

I have a folder full of psd files each one contains 3-4 layers of cut out images of people. Below these is a folder containing a number of layers making up a consistent background texture.

What I want to do is batch process these to make up a jpeg consisting of each of the cut-out layers and the background. So if my psd file has 3 layers of cut out people say layer a, b and c and a folder containing the background texture (call this folder d) then I want to save out a jpeg with layer a + d, another jpeg with b + d, another with c + d.

Is there a way of automating this, or is there a script that will help me achieve this as a batch process rather than having to do each psd individually?

Your help would be much appreciated.

Use Layer Comps... then the Export Layer Comps script

Thanks for that Richard, could you give a bit more detail on that one? Layer comps? Selected Layer comps..? still slightly puzzled. Sorry if this seems like a bit of a noob question, but I haven't had to do this kind of batch processing before.

Your help is much appreciated. Thanks!

Figured it out! That's awesome! I've never used Layer Comps before. What a brilliant toy. Thanks a lot for your help Richard. Just saved me hours of time!!!
