Variables part 6 - the final installment

Once you've defined the variables and the data sets, you'll want to test drive your image. Choose Image>Apply Data Set and select a data set with the Preview box checked. Click Apply and watch the change in the layer content. With a successful test, you're ready to go.
  • Choose File>Export>Data Sets as Files
  • Enter a base name for all files that will be generated. It's best to use your standard file naming scheme to avoid confusion.
  • Click on the Choose button to select a destination directory for your new files.
  • Choose the data sets to export.
  • Click OK.
A little practice and you'll be using this technique all of the time. It takes a little set-up. But, if you are handling a lot of images like this, you'll save yourself a ton of time.
