Hello everybody, I am Nick.
Have you ever complaint about the export script being too slow or having a feeling that it is missing something? Or do you think that it is a little crazy to pay Adobe every month just to their Photoshop to export your PSD file? I primarily use Clip Studio Paint and has been suffering for quite a while. It get to a point that my programmer self could not resist and decided to code my own export tool! Today, I am happy to announce that it is kind of ready to face the public.
Here is the highlight of the features:
1.Super fast export speed. (It is 50x faster in tutorial-1 sample PSD compared to PS export script.)
2.Toggle layer settings with just a click or a key press.
3.Save layer export settings as external project file leaving original PSD file clean and unmodified.
4.Detect and warn or even auto-fix duplicated layer name.
5.Intuitive and easy to use layer searching/filtering.
6.Exclusive pixel adjustment layer. It can treat any normal layer like an adjustment layer and cast the pixel down to other layers.
7.Support exporting same layers to multiple skins.

Isn't it amazing? However, it take me quite a lot of time to get this app to the current state and I am just an individual indie developer who don't even get a steady income. So decided to put this app to Microsoft Store with free trial. After free trial, you can still use it but with a few restrictions. If you are interested, give it a try. If you enjoy using it, you can own it forever with just a one time fee. This also support my work.
Note about those who use Photoshop as their primary drawing app.
If you use Photoshop as you primary drawing tool, and you use a lot of the PS exclusive features. The PSD file you saved may not be processed by Spritato correctly. For example Spritato only support two types adjustment layer (Brightness and Contrast, Hut/Sat/Lum). If you have other adjustment layers such as Gradient Map, Spritato will ignore it unless you encapsulate them in Smart Object or convert them to normal layers before saving the PSD. Thus, Spritato may not be suitable to you because of compatibility issue.
