Could I do this? For example, if I was making a new logo, I would save the psd, it'd create a new folder called Avatar, and in that it would save the psd and the PNG.

Would that be possible?

    Welcome Victory! :) You want to do this by one click? If yes, that's possible via scripting. The documentation can be found here: adobe.com/devnet/photoshop/scripting.html – p2or Dec 20 '14 at 9:46
  • There is a sample script: Save extra jpg.jsx. I think it's a bit unnecessarily complicated script, but could guide you to the right direction. – Joonas Dec 20 '14 at 13:58

if you are using Photoshop CC June 2014 You can get benefit using Extract assets from layers by naming folder group .png this will ensure saving a copy of all the layers and it's sun as assets.

what I mean: you can save your PSD normally while the layers of your logo grouped in a folder layer named XXXX.PNG so you may save PSD normally in the same time you will export all group layers under a specific folder or individual layers as flatten PNG file.

please see this new feature here

Image asset names are generated from layer names/layer group names

Rename the appropriate layers/layer groups

  • The question is about automatically saving a PNG snapshot of the document each time it's saved, but this answer is about saving individual assets on demand via File > Generate – e100 Jan 19 '15 at 17:12
  • why don't you answer the main question instead of critic my answer?? what I said he might "get benefit using Extract assets from layers". if you understand what I mean - and sure you don't - he can save his PSD normally while the layers of his logo grouped in a folder layer named XXXX.PNG so he may save PSD normally in the same time he will export all group layers under a specific folder or individual layers as flatten PNG file. – hsawires Jan 20 '15 at 10:26
  • On reflection, I agree this is a constructive answer. But perhaps you could refine it a bit? Can't change vote unless it's edited. – e100 Jan 20 '15 at 15:04
  • I have just edit my answer. – hsawires Jan 20 '15 at 15:41
