Save Panel

for Photoshop CS5/CS6/CC

Description

Save Panel is a Photoshop plugin that optimizes file saving.

With Save Panel, you can configure buttons that saves documents with your favorite settings.

Customize

  • Destination folder (absolute or relative)

  • Image dimensions

  • File type(s)

  • Filename

  • Image look (using one or more Photoshop actions)

Easier sharing

Use Save Panel together with Dropbox to effectively share images with other people from within Photoshop.

Just configure a button that saves to a shared Dropbox folder. There is no limitation on how many buttons you can create so it's possible to create one button for "Lisa" and one for "John", for example.

Installation

Install with Adobe Extension Manager

  1. Open savepanel.zxp in Adobe Extension Manager.
  2. Enable in Photoshop via Window > Extensions > Save Panel

Note: On some machines, you might have to run Adobe Extension Manager with administrator rights.

Usage

Save presets are created in the options dialog.

Each preset will be represented with a button in the panel.

Save Panel Options

The preset in this example will create a button with the label "Lisa". Pressing that button will resize the current document to fit 1280 x 1280 (pixels) and save it into /Users/john/Dropbox/Lisa/Pictures.

Troubleshooting

If you are having problems installing with Extension Manager you might have to start Extension Manager with administrator rights.

To do so, follow these steps.

On Windows

  1. Right click the Adobe Extension Manager executable.
  2. Run as administrator.

On Mac OSX

  1. Start a terminal window.

  2. Run the following command (change CS5 to your Photoshop version):

    sudo "/Applications/Adobe Extension Manager CS5/Adobe Extension Manager CS5.app/Contents/MacOS/Adobe Extension Manager CS5"

Manual installation

If Adobe Extension Manager gives you problems, you can always install manually by copying the files to the correct locations.

Photoshop CS6 & CC

  1. Rename savepanel.zxp to savepanel.zip. Uncompress.
  2. Copy the Save Panel folder (in panels/cs6) to <Photoshop>/Plug-ins/Panels.

  3. Run Photoshop & show the panel by going to Window > Extensions > Save Panel

Photoshop CS5

The steps are similar for CS5, but you need a few extra steps:

  1. Rename savepanel.zxp to savepanel.zip.
  2. Copy the Save Panel folder (in panels/cs5) to <Photoshop>/Plug-ins/Panels.

  3. Copy the Save Panel folder (in scripts) to <Photoshop CS5>/Presets/Scripts.

  4. (Windows only: Start Photoshop as administrator.)

  5. Run the Save Panel CS5 Fix script from File > Scripts > Save Panel CS5 Fix

  6. Restart Photoshop and show the panel by going to Window > Extensions > Save Panel

hey!
I've got the same problem as Tomasz,
It's telling me that options.js does not exist, even though the file is in the right path.

I'm running CS6 64bit as administrator and I also ran the extension manager as admin.

Any idea how to fix this error?

thx

Tomasz and Andrei,

This should be fixed in 1.0.3. For some reason paths beginning with file:// did not successfully resolve on some machines.

Happy saving!

R.D. saysDec. 25, 2013

Hey guys. Did anyone figure the problem you had? Using 1.0.4 and dealing with the same issue here..

andrei saysJan. 28, 2014

Reimund told me to try and replace line 34 in app-cs6-cc.js with this:

script = _Adobe.assetsPath.replace('file:///', '') + '/static/js/ps/options.js';

and it worked.

Great tool. Thank you.
A suggestion for some additional functions:
Similar to the Lightroom export window build in a post processing function.
- Do Nothing
- Show in Explorer
- Open in other application ...
- Reopen in Photoshop (new document)
- ...

I tried to pay for the extension but the payment window didn't work. My card details were definitely correct so you may want to check this!

joe saysFeb. 10, 2014

Does anyone know if there is anything like this for Illustrator? I have 2 computers, 1 with Illustrator CC and one with Illustrator CS6. I'm always saving down and have to do go with the "save as" options every time. Looking for a Saving preset I can setup like this where I can just click a saved "save" button ....

Okrim saysFeb. 11, 2014

please add paypal as a payment choice for your own sake :-)

B saysFeb. 11, 2014

Is there any chance you can add functionality to save tiffs with this tool? Thanks.

Installed in Ps CC but clicking OPTION button I got this error:

Any idea?
thanks :)
