I created and tested it with Photoshop CS6, Standard and Extended, on both OSX and Windows. Can you give me any other info? Can you get it to work on something simple?
Sometimes there is some initial state I didn’t anticipate, like the layer is locked, a path is active, quick mask mode is on, color mode is set to indexed, etc. (It shouldn’t fail in any of those specific cases, though)
Well … actually there isn’t any more info. :(
I create a document, 500x500px, painting some strokes, then call the script. It starts, but soon, like after the first extraction, it stops with an error:
Error: General Photoshop error occurred. This functionality may not be available in this version of Photoshop. – The object “current document” is not currently available.
I tried on the locked background, I tried it on a transparent layer.
Photoshop CS6 (13.0) on Win7 64Bit
Have you updated to 22.214.171.124? I don’t know if that will help.
If that isn’t it, I really don’t know. There have been a few hundred downloads of the script, and this is the first I’ve heard of any issues.
This is fantastic. If I were able to append the filename with sequential letters of the alphabet, it would be perfect for my needs. Please stay in touch if you’re able to make these changes, I’ll happily come back and donate!!
This tool works great! i was about to write one myself for imageMagick, but who has time for that!
When Getting this error:
The command “Expand” is not currently available.
Make sure that there are actual transparent pixels on the image. I found that if there are not any real transparent pixels, then this error comes up.
