Cut and Save as Multiple Files

I have a task... I need to take scanned in negatives that have 6 frames per file, cut each of the 6 frames and save it as its own jpeg.

Is there a way to make a 6 selections and automatically save all selections as 6 separate files? I am on CS4.

Thanks for the help.

This should do it. You'll have to marquee your selections and copy them to their own layer first.

Re: Cut and Sace as Multiple Files

Well, that worked, but instead of just creating a cropped picture for each file, it created the same file 6 times over with the area that was not selected by marquee as plain white. Is there a way to make it not do that and just give me a smaller file with only that part of the picture that I jumped to the layer?

Thanks for your help

Re: Cut and Sace as Multiple Files

Did you follow the steps. (Use PS Help and search on scripts - export layers as files). You have to turn off the white background layer if you want transparent backgrounds and save as TIFF with transparency. Before running the script, select all your photo layers and align them centered vertical and horizontal so they are in the same position. Then crop your document to just outside the edeges of the photo for smaller size and so they are of uniform size.

Re: Cut and Save as Multiple Files

I found a way that works for me. I used the splice tool to create cut outs of all the sections i wanted. Then saved for web. That saved all the parts I cut out as separate files.

Hope this helps anyone else that comes across this.
