Ever need to make a handful of those Powerpoint type backgrounds to be used in a DDR? Get tired of manually saving them to png format?

Well, bucko, we've got just the ticket for you. And the price is right - absolutely free!

In the attached zip file there are two scripts to be included in photoshop/Presets/scripts directory (at least that is the location for Photoshop 7.0). One is for NTSC (with a check to reduce to 720x486) and the other is for PAL (720x576).

This is the tutorial: The graphic image is one layer, so merge all those layers into one. That will be called "background". After that, put as many layers of text/graphics as you want.

When using the script, a subdirectory will be created in the same location as the original photoshop file, the names will be automatically created with a chronological numbering system, followed by the layer name.

If you need to change a layer, just repeat the script when finished. All the files will be recreated. Easy to find for placement in your DDR.
