Saving each layer as a separate image photoshop with WITH Adjustments


Question

So I'm trying to save a bunch of images that I've edited with added adjustments (exposure, colour lookup, level, brightness).

I know the method for this is File >> Scripts >> Export layers to files

BUT when I do that, it doesn't save the images WITH the added adjustments, just the original image itself.

Please help me, I have about 50 images to save individually with the adjustments and it's been time consuming so far.

enter image description here

ALSO, is there a way where I can save the Adjustment presets and migrate it over to Lightroom 4?

Thanks so much!!!!!!!

Here's a script that will do something like that:

Export Layers Inside Selected Group.jsx

enter image description here

Script usage:

Select a group that contains the layers you wish to export and run the script.

You may want to save before running the script, as it will leave all processed layers invisible.

The way it works:

  1. First it hides all the top level layers within the selected group
  2. One by one:
    1. Shows layer
    2. Saves
    3. Hides layer
    4. Moves to next layer and loops step #2

Code below, incase the gist is ever down:

// Name: Export Layers Inside Selected Group.jsx
// Description: Photoshop script that separately saves top level layers inside the selected group.
