To start with, I have a project where I create a poster each day, and I'm in the process of getting them ready to be sold as prints. Each of the posters that I make for this project has an overlay which essentially says posters number, social links and copyright information (see example below.) I want to offer two versions, one with and one without the overlay (in case people want the poster but not the "branding")

Poster example

What I'm wondering is if there is a way of making an action that opens the PSD, removes the overlay file (they are all named the same) and then save as a JPEG? I've been experimenting with doing this for an hour or so, but so far I've had no luck.

I'm thinking the process should be: Open PSD > Remove layer > Save JPEG

Would anyone know of a way of getting this to work?

Thanks for any help you might have!

Put all the text layers in a group.

When making the action, insert and save both .jpg in the same action, save the first .jpg with the text, then hide the text group and save the second jpg:

  • ...
  • Save as jpg
  • Hide Text group
  • Save as jpg
