It is very hard to find a specific layer in photoshop. Photoshop CS5 doesn't support searching of layers. This plugin helps you to do so.
Quickly search through your photoshop layers. Focus by click.
I have tested it only in Adobe PS5, Mac.
Install from source
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:markupwand/photoshop-layersearch.git cd photoshop-layersearch/ rake
How to use
After opening a psd file in photoshop, Window->Extensions->LayerSearch
Extensions is grayed out for me
Go to Preferences-> Plugins. Enable Additional Plugins Folder, choose /Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS5/Plugins as the folder
Layers do not update when I open a new photoshop file, add layers.
This is just a first prototype. Just close and open the plugin again, it should work.
