Wire removal in Photoshop CS6

Hi! Sorry if this has been covered already, but I was wondering what the fastest workflow for wire removal in photoshop would be? What I've done so far is imported all of my 80 frames (including the clean plate background) as a psd file, each frame as a layer. I've erased out the wire for each frame, but now I have a giant PSD file and I'm not sure if there is a way to batch "Copy Merged" for each layer, and then export them as sequential jpegs. Is there a way to export these cleaned up frames automatically, or do I have to go down the layers one by one telling Photoshop to "save as" each time? Thanks for any help you could offer on this!See More

" Thanks for the advice Nick. I see what you mean, George's top lip area is more pronounced, which I have roughly fixed. Looking much better now, but still needs work. "
