I have the image FishingBoat.psd and it has three layers (Fisherman.svg, FishingLine.svg and FishingLineStroke.svg) that I would like to generate image assets from. But Photoshop keeps generating fourth (unwanted) asset FishingBoat.svg (with all the layers combined). Can I somehow stop it from this behaviour and generate just three assets?

  • You sure you don't have a layer named FishingBoat.svg in the document? Sounds like it would be a group that is named that.

  • Yes, I am sure. There is nothing above these three layers. Jul 23, 2016 at 20:25

In lack of better solution I just dragged all the layers to the new image and now it works correctly. Maybe some bug?


You can rasterize those layers first, and hide the svg file to prevent regenerating new pixels.

  • I don't understand. These are shape layers, I don't want them rasterized. Jul 23, 2016 at 20:28
