Generate PSD to PNG, JPG and GIF Images

Generate PSD image slices on the fly! You can auto generate PNG, JPG and GIF sliced images from your Photoshop PSD layers in various ways with Export Kit. Depending on your requirements, you can use a few different Panels to achieve your needs and get perfect image slices.

IMPORTANT: Images export using the DPI settings of your Document.  If your PSD is 72dpi, then all images will use that resolution.  
Before you export / generate PSD to PNG, JPG and GIF Images you should read about using Layer Kit Pro, Image Kit and Export Kit for a general understanding of auto generating PNG, JPG and GIF Image exports.

Working With Android

With Android each device can have a different DPI scale, so you may need to re-export a few times with a few different settings applied. You may also want to save copies of your PSD in various resolutions to ensure the perfect export.

We will automate Resolution Mapping in a future Lightning Storm release.

Individual Images

If you need to export all your PSD layers as images, the fastest way to do this is to use Image Kit. You can generate all your PSD layers as PNG, JPG or GIF images with custom settings for each before you export.

This will generate ALL your PSD layers as images regardless of the layer type, eg. Text and Shapes will render as images.

If you need to export batch images (image layers only, and those marked as images) then the fastest way to do this is to use Export Kit.

This will create all the skin assets for your project and export only (1) image layers, and (2) layers marked as images.

1. Mark layers to be included as a Fail Safe Image or Safe Object Image.
2. Open Export Kit and Include Images in your Output
