Hey! I made a script. Again. This time (I hope) it will help you with group layer renaming. Script can append, prepend or replace layer name with entered text.
Download and Install
Download Latest Version of the Script
Put downloaded file into
Photoshop/Presets/Scripts/ and restart Photoshop. Script will be available in the menu
File → Scripts → [KAM] Layers Renamer - APR
And as always you can setup a custom hotkey for the script in
Edit → Keyboard Shortcuts…. I have
F2 hotkey for renaming layers (basically it is
Layer (Group) Properties), so I used alt+F2 for group renaming.
How it works
Basically, all you need is select target layers, run the script, enter new text and choose renaming method:
Append — add text at the end of the layer name;
Prepend — add text at the beginning of the layer name;
Replace — completely replace layer name by entered text
I also added special keyword %n, that will be replaced by layer's index while renaming process.
For example, if you enter
Then layers will have names like
Item #3 and so on:
Update according layer folders renaming:
if you use @darkwark's Layer Renaming script in PS CS6 – use cmd to select multiple groups not shift, then it only renames the group folder— Matthew Rose (@matrose25) October 31, 2013
Finally I released this script, hehe. Its functionality were done a while ago, but I was lazy to make a UI for it. But here it is. Hope it will help in your workflow.
Have a good week!
