There is a plug-in that exports layers to .png
Apologies that I don't have a link for you; I use it at work. I will login from work and if you haven't found it, I'll give you more detail.
I will say it works great and has been a life saver working on a UI with hundreds of pieces that have required strategic export.
Hope this helps in the interim.
I appreciate it. I was really hoping that there would be a simple way to do it in illustrator. I'm a bit more concerned about getting rid of any type of border or excess page room than anything. I supposed I could open each in photoshop and magic wand the white areas off - although this seems like a lot of work for something that I'm sure there is a solution to
Loading a plug-in, then exporting to layers...if there's a more simple solution, I'd certainly love to hear it.
Don't fear the plug-ins, they're here to help.
Once you load the plug-in, there will be a new menu item for you in Illustrator. At that point, simply clicking the "Export Layers to .png" option exports all visible layers to the .pngs you want, perfectly sized 1:1 with your art, perfectly cropped, named to the name of your layers and ready to go.
Sounds neat - is it free?
