Photoshop :: How To Merge Adjustment Layers To Several Layers And Export To Files

May 31, 2012

I have now exactly the same problem as below with over 1000 images, I have saved them in .psd that has over 100 layers each. On top of those there is curves and levels layer that affects every layer below. I want to save all images to .jpg for videoedit with those curves at least. I don't want to merge same curves 100 times. Is there a solution in phothoshop cs5 or cs6 available? Would save alot of working hours. All I have got by this far is blank white images of adjustment layers and non adjusted jpg-files.
This discussion was opened in 2010 and I quess this is same problem:
How to merge adjustment layers to hundreds of layers?

Jul 28, 2010 10:38 AMSay I have a photoshop File with 100 layers. 

And say I created 3 adjustment layers on top of those 100 layers to get the adjustments that i want for those layers.   I'm happy with the adjustments but Then I NEED to merge those 3 adjustment layers to ALL those 100 layers.  

Is there a way to easily permanently apply the adjustments to each of those layers without having to do it manually? I absolutely need to merge the adjustments to the seperate layers because of how the layers are being used in a seperate 3d program.   
So far what I've been doing is duplicating the adjustment layers for each layer and merging them to said layers separately.. I wish I could just right click the adjustment layer and Tell it to merge to everylayer it affects  or apply to every layer underneath it!

Photoshop :: How To Merge And Export 2 Layers With Blending Modes

Sep 12, 2011

I'm working on some graphics for an iPhone app for which I need to export images to png.

The image has an inner and an outer glow to create a glowing LED effect. The problem I have is the outer glow has the 'screen' blending mode applied and when I export this the blending mode defaults to 'Normal'. The image must have a transparent background because it will be used in different locations on top of a brushed aluminium background effect.

I understand that the blending mode takes the background layer into account when determining the output. Any alternative way of creating this glowing LED effect which I can export with a transparent background?

I have attached an example of this, the first 'light' is how I want it to appear when merged. The second 'light' is how it currently looks when merged.

Photoshop :: CS6 Killed Merge Layers / How To Merge Layers

Sep 4, 2012

For what I need Photoshop for, I use CMD-E all the time to create raster graphics from vector shapes. I often use this feature to combine shape layers to create buttons.  So, this completely destroys my work flow. The only work around I've found is to create an additional raster layer to merge with the vector layers.

Photoshop :: Apply Adjustment Layers To Multiple Layers That Have Different Blending Modes?

Sep 6, 2013

How to Apply adjustment layers to multiple layers that have different blending modes  and keep the colors the same as the adjustment done?
I work in Animation painting Backgrounds.  My files are sometimes upwards to 200+ layers.I will use adjustment layers to quickly balance colours and constrast on top of those many many layers.
The only way that I know of how to apply adjustment layers it to every single layer  ( by applying I mean I need to get rid of the adjustment layers because we cant use them in production but i need the new colours be applied to all layers underneath ) in a psd is to manually do it By duplicating the adjusment layer 200+ times and  then merging each layer to one of those adjustment layers so that that layer can take the adjustment layers effect permanently.
The issue is that Within Those 200 layers I have some layers set to Multiply or OVERLAY.    IT obviously wont apply the adjustment layer properly to those layers because those layer blend mode affect the layers under them. The colour wont be the same anymore in the spots that had the multiply blended mode.


I have 2 adjustment layers up top.  I need to get rid of them by applying them to each layer! I cannot merge any of the layers. We need all those layers for production.I can apply the adjustment layers manually and this works GREAT for all Layers set to normal.  THey take on the colour change just FINE.
However, The issue is that layer 6 and layer 4 are both set to mutiply and this screws up the colour once i apply the adjustment layers to each layer manually...
How can i apply my adjustment layers to a file like this with some layers being set to multiply while keeping the layers exactly the same configuration  and The new colour taking effect exactly how i looks before i apply the adjustment layers? Now the simple solution is to merge the multiply layers to the layer that it affects HOWEVER I NEED those multiply layers to be separate!

Photoshop :: Adjustment Layers For Certain Layers

Nov 19, 2004

If I make an Adjustment Layer, I notice that it effects EVERY layer underneath it. Is the only way to apply that adjustment layer to layers you WANT is to drag those layers under the adjustment, and then hold ALT and click the line BETWEEN the adjustment layer and the layer you want affected, thus making it a "Clipping?" layer?

Photoshop :: Export PSD Layers To Files?

Jun 2, 2012

I've been chasing this Layer Export Nirvana for a couple of years now but I've got nowhere.In ImageReady 2 I could import a PSD file and export layers with exactly the name I used for each layer (with no annotations, prefixes or suffixes), with the entire file size (not cropped to the edge of the image) in a PSD format.The script in Photoshop adds extenions to the file name that I can't see how to turn off.
I've tried a couple of free (SciptsRus) and commercial (Ferry) scripts but they don't seem to work with my version of Photoshop (Mac CS5 OS X 10.7.4). Is this a result of the recent Javascript updates with Mac OS X 10.7? I'll contact the authors of these scripts next and see what they say.
I tried a PC program called Super Layer which exports to PNG files and almost was what I wanted except it cropped the file size to the size of the image. I could get away with this I suppose if I copied a 1% single pixel into each corner of the file but that would be time consuming for all the layers I need to export (500-600) and means I'd have to rasterise the type layers which is also double handling.
I've even tried Graphic Converter on a Mac but can't get that to quite work. I end up with solid white backgrounds and no transparency.All I want is to open a PSD file (preferably on Mac OS) and export each layer at the same size on a transparent background with just the name of the layer as the file name as a PSD file. I'll alos accept .PNG format as well as long as I get transparency and full file size. Just like we could do with brilliant effeiciency with ImageReady CS2. I've actually kept an old version of ImageRady on my PC for just this purpose but surely in the 21st Century there is a way around this?\

Photoshop :: Export Manipulated Layers To Files

Aug 17, 2013

I'm  working with CS5. I'm trying to export layers of a single PSD file to individual jpeg files, but I want to keep the manipulations I've made on each layer and multiple layers on the exported files themselves instead of each manipulation being exported as its own file. For example if i change the brightness of all my layers and then go to scripts and "export layers to files" the layers do not keep the change in brightness. Instead it keeps the original brightness level and a JPEG file gets created just for the brightness itself (it looks like a blank sheet).

Photoshop :: Scripts -> Export Layers To Files (CS3)

Feb 10, 2009

I'm having an issue with the script "Export Layers to Files."

When running this script, it does something I wasn't expecting...

When it saves each layer to a file, instead of using the size of the layer selection, it saves the layer in the workspace size.

Example: Try to export a 998x60 footer image... it takes the layer and saves it in a workspace size of 1010x1410. So now I've got my footer image inside of a giant white box.

Basically, I was hoping to use this as a mass-export for web design images... but it's not working the way I had hoped. =

Anyone have any solutions?

Do I really need a scanner to export multiple layers to files? Do I really need to save each layer to a file manually?

Photoshop :: CC Adjustment Layers

So impressed with the quick answer from my last question that I have another.  In Photoshop CC (think it's the same in CS6 . .) is there a shortcut for closing the adjustment layer panel instead of having to move the cursor over and press on the cross.  I used to be able to just press return in Photoshop CS3

Photoshop :: CS6 Adjustment Layers

Aug 13, 2013

I use adjustment layers (curves) to modify the tonal scale of my files.  In CS5 I could command click on the image with the eyedropper and a corresponding point would be placed on the tone curve in the curves window.  When I try this in CS 6 (command click) the curves window collapses.  What should I be doing differently.

Photoshop :: Adjustment Layers !

Jun 23, 2008

I have a portrait of two persons. They are treated differently
so I have them on separate layers with layer masks.
So the new retouched background gets through.
These layers are:

P1 and P2.

The background is:


I have some color correction adjustment layers.

Some of these are just for P1:


Some of these iare just for P2:


Some of these are just for B:



I now place my layers this way:

Group1{ C1 P1 (linked as a clipping group)} ,
Group2{ C2 P2 (linked as a clipping group)} ,
GroupB{ CB B }

That works OK.



I also have some color correction adjustment layers
that is for both P1 and P2 but not for B.

How do I place them ?

I do not want to place them both in Group1 and in Group2.

I Want to have them in just one place.

Photoshop :: Merge All Layers?

May 24, 2012

Looking for a quick, one-step method for merging all layers. 
Usually, I Select the top-most layer, then shift-click the bottom-most layer (selecting all layers between), then right click and hit "merge layers".
Simple enough - but I'm working on an "action" and recording the method above is limited because it relies on a file's specific layer names.  I want to be able to use this action as a generic action for any project with multiple layers.
Is there a better way to do this or a File > Merge All option I'm missing?

Photoshop :: Two Adjustment Layers In Two Different Groups

Sep 25, 2012

I have a problem with my layers which I can not figure out how to solve.

see picture:

I have a group called: "Hele akvarier" " where I have used "Create new fill adjustment layer" - "Brightness / Contrast" to the layers which are under. (Layer 2, Original Copy, Original).Over is there are two layers named "Layer 3, Layer 1". These layers, I also need to  use the "Brightness / Contrast" to they're going to look right, but the top "adjustment layer" affects all the layers under.
How do I get my layers divided into two groups, each with its "adjustment layer" to use each with its own settings?
