Photoshop: Extract Assets

2014/11/26 1 comment

Photoshop introduced a feature to generate assets automatically from your layers by giving them a specific name (see more here) with File > Generate > Image Assets, but the rules for naming the files are… complex. So now there is a friendlier way to do this through File > Extract Assets, which gives you a GUI interface for doing the same thing.

  • Select the layer or layers you want to extract
  • Choose File > Extract Assets, or right click on the layers panel and chose extract assets from the contextual menu.
  • The Extract Assets Dialog box shows up
  • Follow instructions to set up asset extraction.
  • Photoshop will automatically name the layers for you
