Layrs Photoshop panel automates tedious tasks

Layrs looks handy. It promises:

  • Layer name editor
  • Remove unused layer effects
  • Flatten all layer effects
  • Delete empty layers
  • Rasterize all Smart Objects

    Neat. It’s also possible to directly embed Actions in Extensions (for Photoshop). In fact, it’s a little easier than using scripts (as per Layrs).
    I still feel though that the best role for Extensions is as easy-to-use “carriers” for tutorial content – if there’s anyone out there who is interested in a collaboration on that, for Photoshop CC, then please holler – I’d be willing to share what was learnt already on that front …

    The Layer Name Editor won’t work for me. When I select two or three layers and click on Layer Name Editor, all of the layers become selected. So it’s useless, unless you want to rename all of the layers.
