Combine Multiple Files into 1 Layered Files - Adobe Photoshop Mac CS, CS2 & CS3

Does anyone have a solution to simplify this process? I wish to take a folder of images, combine them into one layered file where each layer is named from the original file. Thank you...

    It's pretty easy to make an action that will combine a folder full of files into one Photoshop file, but naming the layers from the original files would require some kind of scripting solution.

    To combine your folder all into one file, make a Master Doent that would not be in the folder. Then make an action on one file that goes like this: Duplicate Layer choosing the Master Doent as the destination. You can run this as a Batch form File>Automate.

    It's fairly easy to make a list of every name of every file in a folder in Applescript so I think naming the layers might not be so difficult, but it's beyond my current ability. You could ask on te Scripting forum.

    Select the files you'd like to combine, and walla, one layered doent for you.
