Hi guys!

I'm pretty new to python and have a question about an automation i'm trying to achieve. Is it possible to export several layers to a specific file format (the module offers several) using python. For instance if i have two layers in my data frame (a point feature and a line feature) and i want to export these to PNG separately, I would normally turn off one layer and export the other. Then i would repeat the process again for the remaining layer. Hypothetically if I had 20 layers which I wanted to export this way it would be useful if I had the process automated. Is it possible to write a script that does this? I acknowledge the fact this might be comprehensive, but if it is possible then any "kickstarters" of code in the right direction would be appreciated.
Thank you:)
