Layer Splitter 2.11

Takes a multi-layered Photoshop or Illustrator file and separates each layer to its own file
Layer Splitter was developed to be a drag-and-drop application that takes a multi-layered Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator file and separates each layer to its own file. Each separated layer preserves the dimensions of the original document, making layer alignment a snap. Layer Splitter can output Photoshop files either straight (unmatted) with a mask channel, or premultiplied on either white or black. 

It can read and write Photoshop files in Grayscale, RGB, CMYK, and LAB color modes, and can output them in Photoshop, PICT, TIFF, or Targa formats. Layer Splitter can name output files either by document and layer name ("Untitled_Layer1"), layer name only ("Layer1"), or by sequential numbers ("Untitled_001") in either ascending or descending order.

If you've ever tried to import a Photoshop file into a program with limited Photoshop support, you know what a pain it can be to separate and align layers. Some programs import each layer at its own size, rather than the size of the original document. Some programs can't properly import layer transparency, while other programs can't import Photoshop layers at all.


Layer Splitter takes the transparency information from each layer and moves it to an alpha channel, while maintaining the original size of the source document, creating files that almost any graphics program can read. Layer Splitter also makes it possible to work with Illustrator layers in programs which otherwise wouldn't recognize them.

Main features:

  • Output Options:
  • For Photoshop files, you can select either straight (unmatted) files or premultiplied files on either white or black. Straight files retain the “slop” around the edges of an image and always contain an alpha (mask) channel. They usually provide the cleanest key when compositing images. Premultiplied files are useful if you‘re not compositing images, and the alpha (mask) channel is optional. The Output Options have no effect on Illustrator files.
  • Output Format:
  • You can output Photoshop files in Photoshop, PICT, TIFF, Targa, or Electric Image formats. TIFF files can be output in either Macintosh or IBM byte order, either compressed or uncompressed. Targa files can be output with optional RLE compression. Output files always retain the color space (RGB, Grayscale, CMYK or Lab) of the source file. The Output Format controls have no effect on Illustrator files.
  • Naming Conventions:
  • You can name output files in a number of ways. Let’s say that you have a source file named “MegaFile” with a layer named “Binky”. You can output a file with both the document and layer name (“MegaFile_Binky”), layer name only (“Binky”), document name and sequential number (“MegaFile_001”), or sequential number only (“001”). You can choose to number frames in either ascending or descending order. In the Macintosh version, you can add an optional file extension (“MegaFile_Binky.psd”).
