comment exporting layers to files and applying the background image to all layers
@KMSTR: Using Layer Comps and then File—>Scripts—>Layer Comps to Files is not a bad way to go. Fist create a Keyboard shortcut for Layer Panel menu > New Layer Comp and then quickly turn off/on the "changing" layer, then hit the mapped Keyboard short and repeat. If there's 80-100 and it take about 2 seconds to press the key and turn on and off the layer he should be done within 3-4 minutes and then can use the script without all that extra clean-up as they will be the final as requested. Cheers!

comment Stretching an image along a path
@BHare: The only way you can "easily" wrap an image to a path would be to use the Warp Mesh Transform Tool—enter the Transform Selection mode (Command+T on Mac), then in the Option Tool Bar click on the Warp Mesh icon. You'll probably want to start with an image that has plenty of resolution and then after you complete your shaping, copy and paste it into your working document. In addition, you may have to apply the warp mesh twice in order to keep control of the shape. Using the Warm Transform will provide you with much more control than using Liquify. Cheers!

comment Stretching an image along a path
This actually is a readable barcode believe it or not, but only in some areas with proper width aligned information; I just made the lines shorter, which is allowable, as creating and managing a MIS was my job at one time, and a barcode was my fist companies logo. You seam to be laboring under the false idea that I used a font from dafont.com—I just suggested that's where he may find one as some fixed width barcode fonts can be pricy... And you still have to encode the data.

comment Is there a way to copy layers from one Photoshop document to another?
When dragging layers from one document to another, pressing Shift when release the mouse will align to the center of the destination document. Cheers! (^_^)

comment How to create fake reflections?
This was a nice tutorial, but with CS 6 it's even easier than the above tutorial. You can follow the first few steps to make the 3D Postcard, but then all you need to do is select Environment in the 3D panel and adjust the Ground Plane opacity, this will make the reflections. Adjust the lights and position of the postcards. Once you finish, select the Current View in the 3D Panel, Option Click where you want your camera focus to be and then adjust the Depth of Field Range for your blur. Render and save. Simple! (^_^)

comment How to slightly rotate my photography images with a little twist of 3d perspective?
Right.... It think you're missing the point here. When you use the 2D Transform you are destructively adjusting the original raster information, and it cannot be undone (sans Undo right after or History) once you close the document—not to mention that doing it the 2D ways does not help the "perspective" issues asked in the original question. By using Photoshop's 3D features, it becomes non-destructive. Not only that but you can always open the saved file and adjust it to your hearts content—if you decide you want to change all of the graphics' angles, you can. It's simply a better process.
