How can I align layers side-by-side and crop them automatically in Photoshop CS5?

Can you describe in greater detail what you mean by "crop them automatically"? What is the end result you are trying to achieve? – Farray Sep 19 '11 at 18:39

I would use the same technique I detailed here.

Essentially, surround each layer with a guide, then use the slice tool (specifically the Slices From Guides button from the toolbar), then you can use FileSave For Web & Devices... to "automatically" crop each layer.

You can try writing your own or looking for existing scripts for Photoshop (.jsx file) to crop images

I would try to find a script that cuts an image then saves just the cut one... you can use save for we to do that.
