Does the action simply crop the image or does it resize for the best fit? The process of export crops only for different aspect ratios. It first crops to the largest resolutions for each aspect ratio and then resizes these images down to create all the resolution sizes.
I have artwork in all four corners of my wallpaper that I want to show in each wallpaper size. Will this work? No.This action has 5 pre-determined focal points when it comes to slicing and dicing – center, top left, top right, bottom left, bottom right. To keep all four corners in every wallpaper size would require customization for each individual image.
Does each wallpaper retain it’s layers after export? No. Each wallpaper is exported as a flat image. However, you do have the option to choose what kind of image that will be – PNG , JPEG, GIF
