I've got a dozen layers or so in my .psd and I am trying to Export Layers to Files..., However, when exported, I want the top adjustment layer to take effect on every image.

My layers look a little like this:

- adjustment_layer
- layer_3
- layer_2
- layer_1

Is there any way to do this? Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

you could have the layers grouped up, add the adjustment to the group as a clipping mask and then export the group. That way, all the layers are exported with the adjustment made.

Hope it helps.
