question from a non-graphic designer here.

All the examples I have seen at saving slices as separate images rely on using "Save for Web". What if I want to do the same when saving for printing?

Crop the image before saving. Photoshop CS6+'s crop tool (in the toolbar, shortcut C) allows you to crop an image without actually removing the content you crop away. All you have to do is uncheck the 'Delete cropped pixels' box.

delete cropped pixels box in Photoshop CS6

When you're done saving (as), select the crop tool again and crop your next slice.

OK thanks, but can I save all my slices in one go? Using "Save for Web" you can save every slice as a separate image with only one click. – cbp Sep 19 '13 at 12:58
That's a good one, I don't know. I hope other answerers will help you better than I can. – Vincent Sep 19 '13 at 13:00
If you are using anything under CS6 then this feature doesn't exist. You will need to crop the image, save it as a separate file, and then undo the crop from the starting file and save the image again. (To make sure you don't accidentally save the crop). – Johannes Sep 19 '13 at 22:08
@cbp you might want to take a look at this… – Joonas Sep 20 '13 at 12:05

If you have Illustrator, there's a simple File > Save Slices Command. I was looking everywhere for a Photoshop feature like that, but can't find one. I ended up porting over to Illustrator and saving out from there.

I use to use the slice feature all the time. I know this is a old post but it was near the top when I searched on google because I couldn't remember how to do this. You can actually do this using the slice tool in photoshop. Use it to select the things you want to slice and then click save for web. Granted it's not a one click deal but still very simple :)
