I miss ImageReady. It had features that Photoshop or Fireworks do not have.
It hasn't been updated since CS2, but I would have hoped by now at least SOME of its features found their way into PS. Alas, no.

It would REALLY be helpful if the Export Layers to Files script in Photoshop had a checkbox to include the background layer and also to use Save for Web options, which optimize JPEGs far better than the normal JPEG option.

Hi Paul,
I am actually the person that posted in the Adobe forums last week about that script not working in Mac Photoshop CS6. It stops after the action where it makes a new document with the first layer and will not continue running.
Your script is awesome and I've used it in CS5 and 4 as well. I am hoping that someone may be able to fix it for CS6 on the Mac, because I remember you saying that you don't have an Intel Mac.
Anyone you know who has your expertise that could fix it up?

Hi Timothy, It seems with further tested from the guys at PS-Scripts.com that only Photoshop CS6/Windows has a problem with running untabed. So what I would suggest is to do a reset on your Photoshop preferences and see if that helps.

Oh, I have amended the script so it is only Photoshop CS6/Windows that the tab setting is changed whilst the script runs, so it would be best if you downloaded the latest version.
