I have hundreds of Photoshop files that contain text layers. Is there a way to search for text in these files?
Maybe a connector for Google desktop or Windows search?
There is a Java-based (and freely available) PSD Parser that you could use in another Java program to iterate over the layers of each file. I don't know however if the parser supports output of plaintext from the layers. Some elementary programming skills in Java should be enough to get the job done.
