What's the fastest way to create an image from a layer in Photoshop? The resulting canvas size has to have the same size than the contents of the layer.
Currently I do the following:
- Hide all other layers (right click on the eye, Show/Hide all other layers)
- Use the magic wand to select the background
- Select > Inverse (Shift+Cmd+I) to select the contents of the layer
- Copy the selection
- File > New (Cmd+N): the dimensions of the new image are those of the selection
- Paste the selection
I have to perform this operation many times and I would like to reduce the number of steps to the bare minimum.
