looking for a script to apply adjustment layers to multiple layers

Postby wgan » Tue Sep 25, 2018 2:38 pm

there might be multiple adjustment layers (curve, hue, etc), to reduce the complexity, assuming all those adjustment layers sitting on top of all the layers below and all the layers are of normal transparent mode (but might be of different transparency), I've looked up on many places, unfortunately yet to find one, I could have done this manually, but then there are cases which involve many many layers.

Please post 2 screenshots with examplary scenario to imagine better that you described. So I ask of tree of layer(Set)s image from before applying adjustement layers to, and then one from after applying them. That let to be sure how that should work, thx! Indicate also unseen details...

Hi, please see the attachments, the adjustment layers I was talking about are color balance, layer in colour mode, vibrance and curve on top of the group, but group is not necessary here thus can be ungrouped, so ideally, all those 4 adjustment layers would be merged to each layer in the group, for example, all 4 adjustment layers would be merged to layer 2990, again, all 4 layers would be merged to 2989 and for the rest of the layers in the group.

If I understand you made smart object from 4 adjustement layers that got 'Layer 2990' name. Then you created another smart object from 4 layers that each has other transparency that for 'Layer 2989' name.

You can't make Smart Object from Adjustement layers as it is going to disable pernamently their effect. You may make a group from them though.

Regarding another 4 normal layers you can make either Smart Object or a Group from.

Only all that can be done manually can be rewrite to script, nothing that is not accesible.

Is that you want a script was doing?

one attachment seems to be missing, here's the one elaborate what I want more clearly,

please ignore smart object in my previous post, all I want, as the screenshot shows above, is to merge 3 adjustment layers to each normal layer, so after this, there should be 4 normal layers with 3 adjustment layers applied to them individually.

Okey now I think I understand. It is possible to do. It's late here so probably I'll focus on it tomorrow if I have time. Just one last question. Do you want three adjustement layers where merged into one? And then duplicated as many times as many there are normal layers? So over each normal layer you'll have (merged into one) its own adjustement layer?

I read that again and I think you may want 3 adjustement layers were merged into one and then merged separately again with each normal layer?

I got it - if that has to work, all adjustement layers has to be duplicated, then originals merged to one normal layer, and so one with every next...
