This isn’t like our usual blog as this is partly information and partly self-promotion sort of blog. we have decided to focus more on the niche …
When I first started out as a Graphic Designer I badly wanted a tool “using which I can extract colors from any website”, then someone told me about Extensions!
I have curated a list of some plug-ins which I use almost daily and they might help you work faster and more efficiently as a Graphic Designer.
1. Eye Dropper
This tool is very convenient when the client wants you to stick to already existing color palette but they don’t have a style/color guide. You can quickly pick colors from the website and create a color palette in the browser itself, save it to your clipboard and use it in your design. Super handy.
Another alternate for this tool is ColorZilla, but I like Eye Dropper better :P
It’s just me or sometimes you visit a website and fall in love with it’s typeface and wonder “What Font is it!” (bad joke eh). So this tool lets you see a site’s font and other styling attributes like color, size, weight and spacing, everything at a click.
Another good alternate for this is Fontanello, I use both, depends on my mood ;D
3. Image Downloader
Downloading an image from a webpage is easy, but downloading them all is not. Using this plug-in, you can download multiple images at once, even filter them by width or height. It can save you a lot of time.
Struggling to download that .svg logo from a website? Don’t worry svg-grabber is there to help you out. As the name suggests, this plug-in helps you grab all the svg images, illustrations and icons from a website. It lets you quickly preview and download or copy all the svg assets. It’s super useful sometimes
Tip: You’ll need to refresh your page after installing this extension to use it.
5. Muzli 2
Muzli shows you freshest designs and interactive news from all over the web, to get inspired from, on your homepage. This is a must-have for all the designers out there!
Tip: Muzli replaces your default tab and becomes your home page, you can turn this off on extension settings.
