  • Possible to save layers out to 16bit tiff or exr

    Any idea how I can do this?

    So that each file will be named exactly as per the layer name and preserve transparency.

    Hi Spittle
    You may need a custom script to do this as I don't think the built in scripts do the job and any version of PS (you did not mention your version BTW)
    Here is a link to a script that is close to what you need and the author indicates the flexibility to add other formats to get what you need:

    You could also search or open up a post on the Adobe scripts Forum as there may be one already built that meets your needs

    Hope this is of some use.

      Thanks for the suggestion - I put in a request for additional functionality - scripting is over my head.

      I'm using the latest CC. 2015 I think.

        I'm trying to make this script working in a loop and change parameters in each new loop:

        var layerRef = app.activeDocument.artLayers.getByName("1");
        layerRef.visible = true;

        function saveJPEG( doc, saveFile, qty ) {
        var saveOptions = new JPEGSaveOptions(...

        Capture one. Save tiff with adjustment layers?
        by skoobey
        Okay, after two hours, and no results online, I am getting super angry, as I used to know where that option is, and noone I asked has heard of it??? Even google?

        Where is the option for exporting, so that my local adjustments remain in the tiff as layers???

        Anyone? ...

        save as tif in vbscript?
        by sgwilly

        I'm trying to get a VBscript put together that will open a file (dcr), rotate it, and then save it as a tiff file. I haven't been able to find a command in VBscript to save the file in tiff format.

        I can't imagine it can't be done - Adobe even provides an AppleScript...

        Export layers to files
        by Spittle
        Anyone know of a PS script that will export 16bit layers to tiff, exr (or similar) and also preserve transparency?

        Also needs to keep exact naming of the layers.

        I asked the same thing on the PS forum - which lead to me requesting these features here:
