I've accomplished my goal, however my solution does not involve Illustrator scripts. I simply use Photoshop actions and batch processing: Open a typical image in Photoshop and create a new action. While it's recording, choose the magic wand tool. Right click on the image and click "Color range". Select "Highlights" from the dropdown and set both sliders ...

I am suprised nobody has mentioned this before. There are superior image saving techniques than Photoshop. You can mess with Adobe exporting for days and you will get much better quality with different tools. Lot of times you save 60% more while having identical image quality. If you optimize the images in a good way, you will find that JPEGs are good for ...

If it's an image with text for a post on social media, PNG turns out better / text is crisper. (specifically Facebook)

The rule of thumb is to use JPEG for photos, and PNG for graphics. Of course, there are instances where this rule doesn't apply, but usually this is the best choice. The advantage of JPEG is that it can compress large, detailed images to workable file sizes. PNG works better for images that have straight lines and geometric shapes (lines that shouldn't ...

For me... with no transparency.. whichever is smaller (kb). Save for Web in Adobe apps allows you to switch between formats to compare resulting file sizes. I simply switch between PNG24 and JPG to compare the resulting sizes. I start with JPG medium (30) and check quality. Then compare to the PNG24 size. If JPG 30 is smaller.... I start stepping up by ...

[Updated based on updated question] In a quick test on Ps CC and Ps CC 2014 (x64, Windows 7 and 8.1), Generate is working as expected including the changes introduced by turning "Layer Mask Hides Effects" on and off. The PNGs correctly reproduce the three layer appearances. From a production viewpoint, though, I think by trying to make things simpler ...

Uncomment the line pngExportOpts.matte = true; and change the value to false. The value of pngExportOpts.matte defaults to true, so you must set it explicitly in the script. [Note: I used the original Adobe script and modified it, but I didn't at a glance see any differences between it and your edited version.]

I would suggest to use ImageMagick It is the only tool I know wich is able to convert Photoshop CC Files. You can use it to get an image per layer: convert test.psd out.png (You will get out-0.png, out-1.png...) or to get one specific layer convert test.psd[2] out.png or to get only one image with all currently visible layers convert test.psd ...

If you don't have Photoshop then I'd suggest maybe downloading the free trial of Creative Cloud and installing the app. If you only have this one off need that would probably get you through.

You can manually set the pixel dimensions. With the layer selected, hit CTRL/CMD+T for the Free Transform tool. On the toolbar at the top of the Photoshop window, right click in the "W" and "H" windows and change from percent to pixels. Make sure the Link/Maintain Aspect is not depressed. Then just enter in the pixel dimensions you want. The other option I ...

Acrobat probably saved the images within the pdf as compressed jpegs. I just took a jpg image from a camera, a landscape shot, which came out of the camera as an 8Mbyte jpeg. I opened that in photoshop and saved it out as an uncompressed png file, which was 48Mbytes. (Compressed png would have been 21Mbytes.) I opened that in Acrobat Pro to make a pdf, and ...

If your original png files are very highly compressible - mostly a single flat colour, for example - and you originally saved them without using compression, then Acrobat might choose to compress them without asking you. PNG compression is lossless, so it would probably not bother asking, just do it. then the final product would be smaller, yet would be ...

Like marcusdoesstuff says, one option would be to save out your file in a TIFF. Another option would be to save it in a PSD format and use a plugin to open the PSD in Paint.NET. One is available here, although I can't speak to how well it works as I do not have Paint.NET to test it.

TIFF is a widely supported image format that can save layers and transparency (which Photoshop can open). There's not a ton of advantages of using PNGs over TIFF unless you're using them on a website. Whether it works with Paint.net or not, I'm not sure, but you could give it a go! You could also try saving as PSD (Photoshop's native format) which work with ...

If you export in PNG format, all layers are rasterized. This format aren't vectorial and doesn't support layers. Only Adobe Fireworks (Dismised) can save .png with all layer, but are readable only by itself. Check if Paint.net can read .psd format (photoshop native) with all his layer.

If you use Photoshop CC you don't need any script. You can activate the built-in function "Generator" (File > Generator). This function allow you to export layers and group when you save the document, simply rename your layers/group with the extension you need (like nav.png) and eventually the parameters. With this method photoshop will export for you the ...

Don't trust the Navigator panel, trust your export. The Navigator panel is just a tool to visually orient yourself in large works at big zooms. It is not meant as a preview of what you're going to see when you export a file. In your case, the Navigator preview is way larger than the file's actual size. Therefore, Photoshop makes a pixelated, fuzzy preview. ...

If I am understanding your question correctly you need to make sure to have Use Artboards: File -> Export -> Use Artboards This was also on Stacked awhile ago: "Keep original size when export image from illustrator"

In fact, as @Scott said, if you don't have a logo in a vectorial format (or some raw format) it's better to start one from scratch. As a helping tip, I'd recommend you to use Illustrator to be able to make it in vectorial format so as you can scale it without problems. And, if you let me, I'd use the "Pixel perfect" method, with the option "Snap to pixel ...

You should be able to eliminate this by making sure your artboard coordinates (red) and dimensions (green) are whole pixel numbers (no decimals).

Apparently, the objects that make up your background don't fully reach to the border of the artboard you've exported into your png. To reflect what it sees as a tiny gap, Illustrator anti-aliases your coloured backdrop over its white background, yielding a grey pinstripe. Try and make your backdrop larger than the artboard. That way, Illustrator will see ...
