Photoshop: Exporting Layers to File, I can't control the colour of the background

I have a couple of points when exporting layers as files, 1. the export dialog doesnt remember your last save location, and 2. it imposes a renaming/numbering sequence regardless of whether you want it. Having said that, I can liive with those features if I can get the folloiwng to work, and here's the question I hope someone can help me with. If one of the layers has had a move command applied (I'm aligning some frames) , the new file from that layer is created with WHITE fill in the empty space. Does anyone know if I can change a setting to make it BLACK fill? I expected that I could control the fill colour by setting the background colour. Maybe I missed something, thanks. Malcolm

I've modified the Layers to Files script. Download it here:

Drag and drop the file onto Photoshop to run it. Let me know if it gives you the results you desire.
