I am very particular about naming my slices what I want the filename to be, then do the right-click > export slice on each graphic, but when you have to do that for 50 slices it gets pretty annoying.
Is there a way to select a bunch of slices and export them with their current slice name, all at the same time? Rather than just giving it the generic root - name that they all go off of.
If you name the slices in the Web Layer (double-click on "Slice" then type a name without an extension), then that's the name they get when they're exported.
When I want to export only some of my slices, here's what I do:
If you go through File > Export, you skip steps 3 and 4. If you've already optimized your file parameters, then you might prefer this workflow.
I'm using CS3, but I don't think this process changed in CS4.
