I just fit the artboard to the objects I want: Select desired objects. Object -> Artboards -> Fit to Selected Art ctrl+alt+shift+s to open the Save for Web dialog. ctrl+z to undo fit.

You could use slices. You could set up artboards for each object. Or just adjust the artboard to fit only the object you want to export and then tick the "clip to artboard" option when saving/exporting. You could hide everything you don't want to export first: Select All Shift-click the art you want to export Choose Object > Hide from the menu Export ...

What I ended up doing is the following: Select the object(s) to export Open the document properties window (Ctrl+Shift+D) Select "Resize page to drawing or selection" File > Save As Copy... Select Optimized SVG as the format if you want to use it on the web Not as quick as I would like but quicker than creating a new document for each graphic that you ...

Any time a format isn't available in the Save As dialog, it means that format is invalid for the document in the state it's in. There's no such thing (as Lese and cwedge point out), as a 32-bit (or 16-bit) jpeg, nor a duotone, Lab or 1-bit bitmap jpeg. Photoshop versions prior to CS5 would simply not show jpeg as an available option for 16-bit images, which ...

I'm not sure this question is on-topic, but it's the first question on the site, so here we go: What you're looking for are layer based slices. Select the layers you want to export, go to Layer > New Layer Based Slice(s) Go to File > Save for Web & Devices... When saving, choose "All User Slices" If you have overlapping layers, which you will have ...

In the animation panel flyout menu, choose "Make frames from layers." File > Export > Render Video. Choose a folder for the export and select "Image Sequence" and "PNG".

File > Save for Web and then enter the pixel dimensions by clicking the Image Size tab on the right of the Save for Web window. Or am I not understanding you correctly?

I would cheat. Clear slices, save for web, undo until you have your slices back, and then save that state of the file. What I usually do is duplicate the final file and make a "slice" version, and save slices out of that. My original PSD is never sliced to begin with.

Using File → Save for Web and entering the dimensions will do what you're after. Also, Illustrator uses vector scaling, so the results are better than if you tried the same thing in Photoshop — entering dimensions that don't match the document in Photoshop means the image will be bitmap scaled. Please note that you have to click Apply after changing the ...

To add in words, Since Export Layers to Files is run by some script all I had to do was find that script, then find the function which saves the layers to files, find which part of the function does the numbering prefix & comment it out. So here are the steps - on Mac running Lion, goto Applications > Adobe Photoshop CS5 > Presets > Scripts ...

One thing you can do is: Hide everything you don't want to see (option click the "eye" icon of your chosen layer) Select all Copy merged Create a new file (it'll automatically be the size of your clipboard, which should have resized to the size of actual pixels in your selection) Paste and save as a PNG Repeat! There are scripts for this if ...

File→Script→Export Layers to Files... Make sure the Trim Layers check box is checked before exporting. This will save a 200x200 layer with a 1000x1000 composition as a 200x200 PNG file.

I used an automatic photoshop script once and worked well. The concept is : Each portion is a different image. Each portion (and so, each images) must be in the same folder w/o any other images. Run the script indicating the folder and some parameters (size, css name, etc...). The script does : Merge all images into one with the size you indicated. ...

Not a complete solution, but this might help someone who's come here from Google. If you save with the Save for Web dialog File > Save for Web you can re-size during the saving process, the options are on the right hand side under Image Size. I do this quite often when I need a couple of different sizes for an image, although as the other responses ...

I am sure one of these will work for anyone who has above issue: Go to View → Clear Slices (last option) Make sure that the Slice Tool is not selected while saving for web Open up the Save for Web menu Click the Optimize Menu (icon parallel to "Preset:" drop down in the top right (small drop menu icon)), select Edit Output Settings... Make sure you have ...

Can you? Sure you can. Should you? Probably not, but it depends a great deal on the artwork and what version of PDF you save to. You may find when saving to PDF that more advanced appearance settings may get flattened. PDFs don't link to assets, they embed everything - so placed images would be embedded at all times. You may also find that type objects may ...

The same way you'd export any print-destined file. Export as single page, PDF/X-1a with bleeds and marks. Be aware, you really want large inner margins for any type of spiral or comb binding. And spanning images across the gutter may result in misaligned images. It's generally not a great idea to span across the gutter when spiral or comb binding.

Press-ready PDF files are almost always much larger in terms of file size due to flattening and expanding of objects. Note InDesign merely links to external images. However, a press-ready PDF must embed those links for proper reproduction.

You can use the "slice" tool (looks like an x-acto knife, below the wand): select the rectangular area you wish to save using the slice tool. go to "save for web" use the "slice selection" tool to pick the slice(s) you wish to export, set your options and then save. in the save dialog, pick "selected slices" from the "slices" drop down at the bottom of the ...

After much tearing of hair the following works for me: Select View > Pixel Preview. View > Snap to Pixel should be ticked. You should use Artboards The Artboards should be laid out by Illustrator not by you, so if you've created, copied or positioned any: Objects > Artboards > Rearrange and choose a whole pixel value for spacing. This will lay the ...

When applying anti-aliasing in the Save for Web & Devices panel the entire export gets the same anti-aliasing method but you can apply the anti-alisaing on an object level. Select an object and go to Effect > Rasterize.... Choose your desired ppi, it is better to always choose Use Document Raster Effects Resolution because then it will be easy to ...

EPS is "Encapsulated PostScript," which pretty much gives you its origin and its purpose. It's a legacy file format that permits a visual representation of PostScript code. The only benefit of EPS today is that it's theoretically usable by any vector graphic application, no matter how old, and by legacy equipment such as older computer-controlled engraving ...

You can also select the mask (open the Layers palette, hold down the apple key, and click on the mask icon next to the layer) and then select Image→Crop. SAVE FOR WEB (NOT JUST SAVE) or Save As if you want to keep a copy of the original.

I'd guess that the problem is your starting point for the document. Choose "Web" for the document type rather than Basic RGB, or be very sure the color space is sRGB and not the wider Adobe RGB. Going that route, I see no difference in the output of Export or Save for Web, and wouldn't expect to. When you Save for Web, you don't see a problem because AI ...

GIF is not designed for high-quality images. Smooth vectors from Flash will end up pixelated in GIFs not matter what you do. Photos and the like will generally look bad because of the reduced palette. Dithering can help, but the end result will still be much lower quality. If you want an animation, you should really be using straight Flash and not GIFs ...

When rasterizing vector graphics, lines look sharp if they fall into pixel boundaries. This can be done by the rasterizer (rounding), but most vector graphic programs I know don't support that. One strategy to counter that will be to use a grid whose cells span and integer number of pixels (one cell 1x1 or 2x2 or 3x3, ... pixel). For icons, a 16x16 grid is ...

What you're observing is not a clipping mask, per se. Jpeg has no transparency and no concept of clipping or masking. Jpeg does have several metadata sections, and many programs will happily store extra information in there. Photoshop stores paths, as you've noticed, and guides. To replicate this, create a new file and add some paths and guides. Then ...

Just a suggestion, you could "copy merged" then open a new file (this will already have your image size so just hit enter), paste, then "save for web and devices". This way you don't have to have two Photoshop files to maintain; you can just save the entire image as the optimized version you need. To specifically answer your question, there isn't a way to ...

Choose File > Scripts > Export Layers To Files Select the Visible Layers Only option if you want to export only those layers that have visibility enabled in the Layers panel. Source

I understand that it is bad practice to try and make faux bold text in any program, whether Photoshop or Illustrator or Indesign. I understand it, but it is also not realistic to an artist. Sometimes you like fonts that don't have a bold option, but they need to be more readable. What do you do then? So it isn't good to apply faux bold in Photoshop because ...
