One button push for saving out different maps from Photoshop Script

Was anyone here as annoyed as I was about having to waste time to save out Diffuse, Normal, Specular, etc...from Photoshop in a boring tedious manner many times a day? I needed a clean simple little thing to save out my files for me, that changed nothing and asked nothing - no preferences, checkboxes and any other stuff like that. The most user friendly program is the one you don't even notice. Just push a button.
So the other day I snapped=) After some hours of shaman singing I came up with a little something, and here it is:

The Picture clearly explains how to install and use the script, but just in case there's a readme in the script files themselves - just open them with the notepad.

Here's the link for conventional .zip file download
Enjoy! I can't imagine myself working without it now.

Hide/Unhide All/Selected layers interface buttons for Maya Script

While working with Maya I banged my head repeatedly against the table, for my work was a living hell to due to lack of 2 interface buttons with fairly simple functionality. My workflow was literally screaming for them. When I finally got a blister on me forehead, I spent some hours writing this thingy.

The Picture clearly explains how to install and use the script, but just in case there's a readme in both Russian and English included.

Here's the link for conventional .zip file download.

Caution! The script was only tested with 2008 and 2009 versions of Maya. If you have any other scripts installed via layerEditor.mel and layerEditor.res.mel files, then, unfortunately, they'll be gone. If you want to keep 'em you'll have to manually paste script lines into the files. If you're in trouble because you don't really know how to do it - mail me. I'll send you a little walkthrough.

I hope this will come in handy for you!
