Add to the syntax an option for applying the PSD filename to the generated image's filename.

ie. A wildcard character for the filename.

Example: You open a PSD file called "lazyboy fuscia armchair.psd"

You remove the background/deep-etch chair. You then need to export one or multiple PNG and JPG files.

So generating a layer of a psd file will be *.jpg, where * is lazyboy fuscia armchair.jpg

This will help immensely with large numbers PSD files that need work, or for generating multiple files from layers.

Rather than typing out lazyboy-fuscia-armchair.png8,lazyboy-fuscia-armchair.jpg,100x100 lazyboy-fuscia-armchair.jpg,lazyboy-fuscia-armchair.png32, could type
*.png32,*.jpg,100x100 *.jpg,*.png2

I hope this makes sense.
