How to can extract all icons from an .eps file?
shutterstock_219776725.eps that I downloaded from http://www.shutterstock.com/ , it looks like this when I open it in Photoshop.
to export all those icons in there into its own pieces so I can use them on my website.
doing this manually one-by-one is very time-consuming, now I'm thinking to automate export all of them.
Is there any Mac application out there that help me achieve this such task ? What is the fastest way to extract all the icons from that .eps file ?
After loading my shutterstock_219776725.eps in Illustartor. I see one layer. When I click on the left arrow, I see all the sublayers.
I've also tried
And use this script (Export-Layers-as-PNG.jsx): http://blog.iconfinder.com/how-to-export-multiple-layers-to-svg-files-in-adobe-illustrator/
Place that script in here : /Applications/Adobe\ Illustrator\ CC\ 2014/Presets.localized/en_US/Scripts/Export-Layers-as-PNG.jsx
Then, I tried to export using the script. I still couldn't see anything exported.
Automation would be a waste of time unless you need to do this on a lot of images. The easy thing to do in Photoshop, is to drag out guides into a grid enclosing your icons. Then use the slice tool. Select the slice tool and look in the Options bar. There should be an option for "Slices from Guides". Then Photoshop will let you save each slice and assign URL's and so forth in the Save For Web dialogue. These tools are specifically designed for web developement.
