Photoshop CS6 -> Export Layers To Files Subfolders

I hope that anybody of you could be able to solve my Problem.

I’m using Photoshop CS6 and would like to get only the filename prefix I specify. If I try using the Export Layers to Files command, I get the prefix I created, like ‘S03_‘, but then there is another prefix automatically added like ‘0001’.

Also, if I have the layers in a group, the prefix is kind of like ‘0001s’ and then there is another one like ‘0001’.

I searched and found out how to solve that first prefix problem ‘0001’. So now I’m left with the second problem. I think that it is because these layers are in a group and so the name of the file is now ‘S03_0000s_example.png’.

I would like to have these ‘0000s’ prefix gone, or it should be replaced by the name of the Folder it is in like ‘S03_examplefolder_example.png’


Photoshop CC just added the Generate feature which would allow you to dynamically export layers. that combined with Layrs is pretty awesome. but this won’t help you in CS6, sorry.

the easiest workaround would be batch rename in bridge, that will allow you the control over the renaming you are looking for.
