Data Driven Images in Photoshop


You may find yourself with a list of images to create, each one based on a template but with unique data and imagery. An example would be sports team cards, or trading cards, with images and text on each one. Photoshop can help to automate this process, and all it requires is a bit of planning and up front work – and a small text file. Learn to take advantage of data driven images in Photoshop and save yourself loads of time.
