Import Layers from Photoshop

Recommended Posts

Do you want to import Photoshop layers to separate Watchout media elements? One of our long-time users, Keith Tromer of Corporate Imaging has written an application which does just that! It trims, positions and sets centered anchor points.  It even optionally creates elements in compositions and deals with blend modes! I’m thoroughly impressed with what Keith has accomplished, and I can definitely see the utility of such program.

At this time, it is not available for release, they are testing the waters to find out if there would be enough interest to warrant a public release.
 
Have a look at the demo video on their website and 
Be sure to fill out the form below the video to let them know you’re interested.

Holy moly! This may possibly be one of the most brilliant things I have seen come along for WO in a long time. Definitely putting in my vote and interest in seat licenses now. If only I could vote twice...

I know this has been a while... but we have finally had the time to make a release out of this product.  

 

Photoshop Import for Watchout is now available for purchase.

 

Automatically import all Photoshop layers into Watchout.  Trimmed, in position, with anchors centered!  It even supports blend modes and making each PSD into a composition.

 

Have a look at the video tutorial here:

Thanks for all the positive feedback on this over the last few years.

Kietht,

Very nice app.

I would buy it if you could add one more option...one that that Photoshop use to have, they took it out after Photoshop ver5.5.

Example:

Create template in Photoshop for Awards (name, title, photo, etc.)

Then be able to populate the template using a excel speed sheet.(like a web page).

You could do hundreds of "award winners" in no time.

 

I do a lot of Award shows ...hanging on to Photoshop ver5.5 for that reason.

Look forward to using your app.

It is still possible to create data-driven PSD files, although I think the name of the feature has changed in the CC versions of Photoshop - the data & variables functions allow you to create layers or files from a CSV data source.

Hi Richard,

Although I haven't tried this in a few years, last time I needed such a feature - I was able to do it in Photoshop with Native Define Variable features.  Here is a nice tutorial on how to accomplish.
