I have 180 groups (see image for example), each group is a different label design. I need to export each group as an individual PDF file.

Group = Label Design

What is the best way to achieve this? I know how to export them individually and how to bulk export to png, jpg etc. but I can't figure out how to export to PDF. I've tried exporting layer comps but that exports as one big pdf and not individual files.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!

EDIT - I'm not looking to batch export Photoshop layers to individual PNG files.

  • @Ovaryraptor I don't think this is a duplicate question. I'm looking to export to PDF and not PNG. I already know how to batch export to PNG and this requires a different method.

Right click each group and 'Merge Group', do this individually for each group. Select all files and then Export Layers To Files and select PDF. This is the easiest way I've found so far. I was actually looking for a script or method to do the individual grouping automatically but haven't found a method yet.
