I saved all my linked Files of my multiple Photoshop files in a folder. I moved the linked-files folder to another place.

Now when I open a file, I need to relink it and it's not so bad. But... I have lots of photoshop files which their liked-files are moved to another place (but are all in the same folder as before) and I need to open every single file and relink it again.

Is there a better way to relink them all at once? (with/without Script)

  • Is there some easily understandable pattern like /foo/bar becomes r:\resources or something more complicated.

Linking Layers in multiple Photoshop files:

  • In the Layers palette, press [Ctrl] + select the layer(s) you want to link.
  • From the Layer palette, click Link Layers. A Link icon. appears next to a layer names, indicating that the layers are linked.
  • Thank you, but as you can see, I've already mentioned that I can do this if I do this one by one. The question is: if there is a way to do this with a script or somehow with multiple files whithout opening them.

    I believe the term "Link" in the question is referring to placed files which are linked to other external files and not "linking layers" together within the layers panel. In addition, there's no feasible way to "link layers" across multiple Photoshop files. "Linking layers" is localized to a single document - so your opening sentence in boldface, is actually impossible.

  • You are right. What I mean is linked-files, not linked layers. I have corrected my Quistion. Can you help me with the quistion?
