49 layers of icons in Illustrator, ready to exported as individual PNGs.

I found a script on Hicksdesign.co.uk that allows you to create, say, several icons each on a different layer in Illustrator, then export each layer individually as a PNG file.

The pathway on your hard drive for the script to be placed is Adobe Illustrator > Presets > Scripts.

Next, create your Illustrator file with different layers.

Finally, to export the layers as individual PNGs, simply use your Illustrator menu: File > Scripts > SaveLayersAsPNGArtboard

It works great – a handy script to already have loaded in Illustrator for when you really need it!
