10+ Free Photoshop Plugins for Web Designers

Using Photoshop extensions greatly increase its ability to help you design, steamline your workflow and make you be more productive. You can use a Photoshop plugin to speed up repetitive or tedious tasks such as:

There are plenty of other Photoshop extensions out there, and on this list are 12 awesome ones that help you manage your layers, colors, guides and more, to alleviate your workload and help you focus more on what requires your attention. If you know of more Photoshop plugins or extensions, do let us know in the comments.

1. Hexy

Hexy provides you a quicker way to obtain Hex and RGB color code. With this plugin, you can use the eyedropper tool and simply click on the color of the image you want to pick up, and Hexy automatically copies the color to the clipboard for you. That way you can immediately paste it to use it in CSS. It’s a handy tool for color-picking.

Compatibility: Photoshop CC 2014

2. Size Marks

SizeMark allows you to add labels of an object size or the distance between each object using a Marquee tool. SizeMark saves each label created in a new layer so you can customize it whichever way you need e.g. changing the color or adjusting its position. It is essential for when you need to translate PSD into a functional website.

Compatibility: Photoshop CC 2014

3. Pictura

Do you need to insert images in your design? You should install Pictura. Pictura allows you to search and add images to your Photoshop conveniently without leaving your workspace. When installed, Pictura will add a new panel on which you can search any image in any License you need, then insert it to your design immediately.

Compatibility: Photoshop CC 2014

4. Oven

Oven is a nifty plugin that helps you better manage your assets. Photoshop’s Generator allows us to export images in real time but you will have to rename all your layers in order to generate the image correctly and with a proper name. Oven eliminates that hassle.

Compatibility: Photoshop CC and CC 2014

5. Ink

Converting PSD to a functional website is always a tricky process. There is so much detail to examine such as layer styles, font size, font family used, element size and position against other elements. Ink will help you generate these information easily.

6. LayerCraft

LayerCraft is a Photoshop plugin that allows you to export layers into multiple scale. You can export images into @1x, @2x and even @3x (which is required in iOS devices with Retina screen), or mdpi and xhdpi for Android. If your daily job is creating UI for mobile interface, this is the tool that saves you a lot of time.

Compatibility: Photoshop CC and CC 2014

7. Composer

Composer improves the Photoshop Layer Comps feature. Rather than have multiple separate files to store every design revision, Layer Comps lets you store and manage them all in a single file. Layer Comps acts similar to a Smart Object. Each may contain a couple of properties such layer styles and blending modes. Composer, in this case, provides the easiest way to update these styles with just a single click.

Compatibility: Photoshop CS5, CS6, and CC

8. Velositey

Velocity is an extension that can help you build web design prototype quickly. Velocitey comes with a handful of preset templates including the grid. It also comes with common layout placeholders for the website header, content and footer. You can add all these components with just a click. It’s literally a time saver (and it’s free).
