That's what I thought but wanted to make sure. Write your action so that you end up with 72 layers Either as part of your action or manually afterwards, select the options "File/Scripts/Export Layers to Files In the new window you will have the options to specify the file prefix, destination folder, and file format. Make your choices and click on OK. ...

It doesn't mean it's your issue but: A lot of time, when magical things happen when they shouldn't, it's because you're using a keyboard shortcuts you are not aware of. It's possible you are pressing the "/" while being on your layer and it will lock it or its transparency. You can lock/unlock layers with this keyboard shortcut.

Save the original image with the layer group as an xcf. In the new image, and open the original as layers (File > Open as Layers). This will add all of the layers from the original image. You'll need to delete the layers from the new image that you don't want. Unfortunately you can't pick/choose what layers you import. But as long as this is only a ...

Copy&paste is the wrong approach to copy layers from one image to another - this will only transfer the layer content, and as you have discovered that isn't the same as a layer or group of layers. Instead, drag the layer or layer group from the layers dialog of the source image to an image window of the target image. This will keep them intact, ...

Make sure that the layer is active when you are scaling. This is indicated by a white outline around the layer in the layers dialog: If the layer mask is active, then the scale tool will only scale that one layer mask.

What I do is add 3 big folders to my work. Header, Body and Footer cause for a web designer these are very easy to distinguish. Place all my static layers in the Header, in the Footer I usually have stuff like copyright and lower menu and I always work in my Body, every other thing is there, therefore I do not need to open any other folder and doing so ...

There's a slight trick to it. You can't drag from the layers panel to a tab. Highlight the layers you wish to move in the Layers Panel then click drag from the document window to a hidden tab. The tab should then spring forward and allow you to "drop" the layers. Basically the drag has to be initiated from within the active tab in order to get the hidden ...

If you are referring to the yellow/violet lines on the left... The layer highlight colors mean nothing technical at all. They are merely provided so you can visually separate the layers while you are working if you feel you need to. You can set a group of layers to use Blue, then another group to use red, then another to use green -- this is only so you ...

I don't know if you can do it %100 automated but you should be able to get at least a good %92 automated by creating an action in Photoshop, it's actually pretty easy because all you have to do is open the panel and push record then do the steps you need to do and it keeps track of it. That way later on you can click on something and push play and it will ...

You can't. When you save to jpg you create a flat file without layers and no layer information is retained. You threw away all layers when you saved as a jpg. There is no way to get layers back. If you want to retain layers in any file, you should save it to the native .psd format.

I'm actually pretty sure this is because of the Layer Order. Just select the layers you want to export with this Method and go to Layer -> Arrange -> Reverse. Then Export them again and everything should be fine :) EDIT: You also can just change the order in which the Names are listed within the Explorer. Just right-click -> Sort By and then change from ...
