Export Styles File Patterns


“Export Styles File Patterns” is a layer styles utility script using the JSON Action Manager scripting library, and more specifically its module jamStyles.

This stand-alone script written in JavaScript is used to export the embedded patterns of a Photoshop styles file (.asl) or a styles palette (Styles.psp) into a new Photoshop patterns file.

The export patterns feature is also directly available from the script Get Layer Style.


This script can be used in Adobe Photoshop CS3 or later. It has been successfully tested in CS4 on Mac OS X, but should be platform agnostic.
