Why: To simplify tracking of supplies used on a layout.
What: Copies the file name of an item to the layer name. When the item is moved onto a layout, the layer name (file name) is copied also.
How: Open a file and run Rename Layer before moving the item to your layout.
Using the Script:
When you open a file in Photoshop, or PSE, the layer name is usually something like 'Layer 0'.
When you move the item to a layout in Photoshop (or PSE), it is given a generic layer name, like 'Layer 1' which is not helpful later when trying to track your supplies.
When you open a file and run Rename Layer, the file name becomes the layer name.
When you move the renamed item to a layout, the layer name moves with it. This makes it easy to track the items used on a layout when the layout is finished.
Tip: If you are using a layered PSD file and want to move it to your layout, you can still run Rename Layer before moving the layers. Rename Layer will only rename the top layer of the multi-layer file.
