How to save layers as GIF images?

Hi all..

When I have a PSD file that contains a design of an HTML page, I need to save each layer as GIF images so that they are displayed in the page.

This is the way I proceed:

- Select the layer by using Ctrl-Click over the layer in the layers palette.
- Press Ctrl-C to copy it
- Create a new image
- Paste
- Save for Web

That procedure is tedious when there are a lot of layers. Is there a better way to do this?
I tried by making visible only the layer I want to export but when I choose Save for Web, the image to be saved has the original dimension, not that the visible layer has.

Thanks
Jaime

You could hide the all the layers but one do a save as then go to the next one. Start with them all hiding, then go one at a time shouldn’t take more then a couple of minutes

Sorry... but I didn't understand. I have hidden all layers but one, and then?

then do your save as and repeat for each layer that should be much faster then what you were doing

But when I do that, the resulting image size is the original one, not the size of the layer.

Suppose the document is 800 x 600, and the layer image is only 50 x 16. Of course I want to save only the image with 50 x 16, but by using "Save As" the whole canvas is saved.
