I have multiple, 1024 jpeg tile images that are effectively tiles of a one big image which was split into a matrix of 32×32 smaller ones (each 256×256px).

I wonder how could I efficiently put them back together as a single (psd?) file, ideally avoiding recompressing/reformatting (preserving originals as layers or even better, storing only links to the original tiles?)

Would that be possible?

The tiles are named using a convention:

img_01_01.jpg img_02_01.jpg … img_32_01.jpg
img_02_01.jpg img_02_02.jpg … img_32_02.jpg
      ⋮             ⋮               ⋮  
img_01_32.jpg img_02_32.jpg … img_32_32.jpg

I'm able to create an html that shows all the tiles together but now I would like to be to have all the PS flexibility to work on with the stitched image.

  • I think that would modify (recompress) original files… – msciwoj Apr 27 '15 at 19:20
  • no, why would it. – joojaa Apr 27 '15 at 19:55
  • It's manually possible to place each tile as a smart object (linked) in a single PSD then arrange them properly. – Scott Apr 27 '15 at 20:00
