Retinize it

If you need a simple plug-in for exporting without any complex functionality, then with Retinize It you can cut and export layers or groups into separate files. The plugin works both with images and with smart objects, in just a couple of clicks you can increase the image to 200% or 300% so that it looks good on retina and iOS displays.

Codly

When designing a design in Photoshop, the moment comes when everything you have to code is the biggest problem. Codly takes this task onto itself and automatically converts PS files to files for iOS, Android XML, Windows 10 and BlackBerry.

Duplicator

Forget copying layers and groups. Duplllicator takes on the ungrateful job of duplicating layers and groups in the design process. With this quick plugin you can set horizontal and vertical indentation, as well as the number of copies, which allows you to perform large volumes of work in no time.

Photoshop Prototyping Plugin

When changing the prototype, it is not necessary to recreate the finished layout in Photoshop. The collective development platform UXPin has released a plugin with which you can drag and drop PSD files into Photoshop and do prototyping. Since all layers are saved, you can immediately proceed to add interactive elements. At the end, for quick feedback, you can send the prototype to anyone you think is appropriate.

Guideguide

GuideGuide bears the title of the most installable extension for Photoshop, and it’s not just that. Using this plugin, you can create any design guidelines – based on canvas, workspaces for different devices, selected layers, and also based on already created areas. One of our favorite plugins.

Perspective mockups
Your finished layout in Photoshop seems to look good, but with Perspective Mockups you can change the viewing angle of the layout to better understand the various aspects when viewing on different devices. With this plugin, you can tilt layouts, twist them, overlap each other.

Suitcase fusion

If you are one of those designers who remember the names of all their fonts by name, Suitcase Fusion is what you need. The plugin organizes all your fonts and simplifies access to them while working in Photoshop. Visual preview allows you to compare two fonts, especially useful at the final stage of design.

HTML Block

Another helper with code – HTML Block uses the WebKit engine to render design in HTML and CSS, showing the result in a separate window. A wide range of applications, especially for using web fonts, font smoothing, browser previews, and for designing resizable interface elements.

Renamy

Renamy was created specifically for fast batch renaming, and does it very well. With this plugin, you can rename a large number of layers at a time – a big time saver before exporting the file. The full version costs $ 14.99, in the demo at a time you can rename only 5 elements. What’s your favorite web design plugin for photoshop? Write about this in the comments.
