question from a non-graphic designer here.
All the examples I have seen at saving slices as separate images rely on using "Save for Web". What if I want to do the same when saving for printing?

Crop the image before saving. Photoshop CS6+'s crop tool (in the toolbar, shortcut C) allows you to crop an image without actually removing the content you crop away. All you have to do is uncheck the 'Delete cropped pixels' box.
When you're done saving (as), select the crop tool again and crop your next slice.
You can use
save for web even if you are saving for printing.
Just make the image size compatible with your printing needs before saving. So, make the image at whatever dpi/ppi and at size. Then slice and save for web.
It's not ideal, as PS will likely add some compression, but depending on the image you are working with, and the distance at which it is to be viewed, it just may work for you.
Old question here but was first result on Google when I searched. Here is the option I used for print since save for web will decrease resolution and it seems there isn't a way to use slices to get higher resolution images
Use image assets, not slices: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/generate-assets-layers.html
It may seem a bit complex at first but once you try it out its very easy, and didn't require too much reworking of my sliced file to get it to work (but YMMV depending on what your file looks like)
In a nutshell - you make layer groups with their names in Photoshop as filenames and everything in that layer group will save out as the filename of the group every time you save the master Photoshop file.
I use to use the slice feature all the time. I know this is a old post but it was near the top when I searched on google because I couldn't remember how to do this. You can actually do this using the slice tool in photoshop. Use it to select the things you want to slice and then click save for web. Granted it's not a one click deal but still very simple :)
