Hi Amrita,

There is a naming convention for your layers to extract them as assets for 2x and 3x use cases. Here is a link to let you know how to do that:

In the future, we hope to make this workflow easier.

Also, if you do not want to change your layer syntax in PS, there is a handy service called Extract in Creative Cloud that can help you get assets from your PSD and it will give you 2x and 3x assets. Here are the basics:

1. Upload your PSD to Creative Cloud
2. View it on the web in the "Extract" tab.
3. Select any layer to extract an asset from.
4. Click on the down arrow to extract that layer. Specify in the dialog to get a 2x or 3x asset.
5. Download the asset from the cloud.

Details on this service are here, if you want more information or want to see what else the service does.
