I've created a bunch of layer slices. However I need a way of hiding the background layers to make the images based on the layers have a transparent background when saved.

As i'm doing it now, I need to hide the background layers every time before selecting save for web. Is there an easier way?

graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/4721/… and if it's a slightly different case you can make action where you duplicate selected group or selected layers into a new document and use Image > Trim > Transparent pixels and then either add saving of the image to the action or leave that for you to do manually. –  Joonas Mar 7 '12 at 12:07
    
Very nice indeed :) I will have to read up on that, but it definitely looks promising. –  Unless Mar 7 '12 at 13:46

Another way of doing it that requires a bit more setup is to use layer comps along the way so that each slice (or group of slices for a single layout component) has its own comp with all BG and/or FG layers hidden.

Yes there is much easier way...

Alt+click the layer's eye that you want active(which you want to slice) by this all the other layer will be hidden for once .

Repeating the same Alt+click will show the whole layers again.

hope this will help..

That's the way I do it at the moment, but it's definitely a valid point! –  Unless Mar 7 '12 at 13:47
