I'm using a linked .psd file to quickly make a series of images for screen-printing and web all at the same time. I use it to place images from Photoshop into Illustrator. The linked file is really key to expediting my workflow, but the only drawback is that I need to enter the names of the layers in Photoshop into a text box in Illustrator. To clarify, the layers in Photoshop are named according to Pantone colors which I document in Illustrator for the printer to reference.
The linked object in Illustrator doesn't show the layer names. It's really clunky to click back and forth from Ai to PS and type in the name of each Photoshop layer into Ai. Is there a script or an action for doing this? I thought maybe an apple-script that recorded my copy-paste keystrokes would do the trick but I don't know much about scripting.
Thanks for any help!
