Exporter

Automatically export your textures to common file formats (TGA, PNG, etc.) out of PSDs containing multiple maps.

Exporter panel overview

Features

  • Quickly export textures from PSDs containing multiple maps organized in groups.
  • Compress multiple maps to a single texture by defining which Photoshop group you want to export in each image channel (RGBA). For example you can have an opacity map saved to the red channel and a specular map saved to the green channel of the same texture.
  • Multiple export formats supported: TGA, PSD, PNG, TIFF, JPEG.
  • Multiple export scaling options: 200%, 100%, 50%, 25%, 12.5%.
  • Filters: apply blur, sharpen, invert on export.
  • Normal maps: normalize normal maps or flip X/Y axes on export.
  • Settings are saved into the document as XMP metadata, so that you're immediately good to go as soon as you reopen the file.

Below you can find some quick tutorial and troubleshooting information for the panels.

Installation (CC 2015 and up)

Starting with the CC 2015 release, Adobe has ceased support for Extension Manager CC in favor of the new Adobe Exchange service. Installing Expresso using Extension Manager CC won't work anymore. Eventually, Expresso will be released both as a standalone ZXP package and through Adobe Exchange, but for the time being you can install it in a couple of ways:

Once installed, you can find the panels in the Window -> Extensions menu.

Installation (CC 2014)

You will need Adobe Extension Manager CC 2014 (version 7.2.1) to be able to install the plugin. You can download it for free from Adobe Creative Cloud, or from the Adobe website (Extension Manager, 2014 update). Adobe Extension Manager will automatically notify you of eventual updates to the extension when you open it.

Once you have Extension Manager installed just double click the downloaded plugin file to start setup. During setup, Extension Manager will complain about invalid certificates: just click okay, there’s nothing wrong in the extension. When setup is over, you can find the panels in the Window -> Extensions menu.
