When I am designing a mockup in Photoshop CC (a website for example), I typically have each element of the website on an individual layer. This is both for production of creating the assets for development and ease of use within photoshop (editing the actual mockup).
When it comes time to create the assets for production, I would copy them, create a new file, paste and save them as needed. However, is this actually efficient and it begs the question of what are other ways of accomplishing this task.
What are efficient workflows for exporting assets from a design mockup in Photoshop CC that are different from previous versions of photoshop. Are there plugins that can assist and are there downsides? Sometimes plugins are not as controllable as manually control for example.
Here are some I can think of with consideration of transparencies etc:
- As mentioned above, Copy the layer, open a new file, paste and save
- Ctrl Click the layer tile, crop, save, Undo the crop (not generally "safe")
- Convert the layer into a smart object, open it, save
