Hello,

Does anyone know of a program that can search through multiple Photoshop files for specific words or characters (user input) in text layers within a file.

Thanks in advance,

Jeff D.

Hi, jeffdino,

If you just want to find text on text layers (and no replacing), AND you use Windows on a PC (you didn't specify), then a program I've been using for about 10 years can do that.  Take a look here:

http://www.ghisler.com/

Now, before you shrug it off, this is also a VERY useful tool for everyday management.  I never use Windows Explorer (or MY Computer) anymore.  His website has over 20 million hits, he sells in countries all over the world, and his product has been around since DOS was the only PC OS.  You might check out the features (in addition to being able to read inside PSD files...which I tested successfully).

Regards,
Slynky

Glad to help, Jeff.  As I said, if you give that a program a chance to replace Windows Explorer, you'll never go back.

Cheers!
