Blur Like Jony is Photoshop filter plug-in that makes the blur in the same way as Apple does in the current iOS.

If you have Photoshop psd files lying around your git repository, you probably already know there’s no easy way to track any changes to them — you have to launch Photoshop and manually inspect them, and if you’re not a designer or don’t have Photoshop installed on your device, you’re fresh out of luck.

Whilst it’s not a great idea to store your PSDs in Git, psdiff a great example of what one can achieve by using a Git pre-commit hook.

Five days after the previous update
PS_BRAMUS.GoogleMapsTileCutter — a Photoshop Script which automatically chops up a large image into tiles for use with Google Maps — has been updated again.
With this new version one can now choose to place all tiles into one and the same folder (as it was before), or use subfolders instead. Handy if you’re exporting 21845 tiles (=all tiles needed for zoom levels 1 through 7) to prevent your system from hogging when accessing the export folder
After exporting the tiles themselves,
PS_BRAMUS.GoogleMapsTileCutter now also creates an
empty.jpg file for use with the Google Maps implementation. Above that you don’t have to make the implementation yourself anymore as
PS_BRAMUS.GoogleMapsTileCutter now also generates an
index.html for use with your fresh tiles.
I don’t run ads on my blog nor do I do this for profit. A donation however would always put a smile on my face though. Thanks!
It’s been 1.5 years already since I created
PS_BRAMUS.GoogleMapsTileCutter, a Photoshop Script which automatically chops up a large image into tiles for use with Google Maps. Today a huge update was released.
Sparked by an initial pull request by Nick Springer,
PS_BRAMUS.GoogleMapsTileCutter now sports a UI dialog in which you can set the options before starting the cutting process. In the previous version one had to change these in the source of the script itself.
One of the new features that was added is the option to prevent empty tiles from being saved. Can come in handy to save bandwidth. Above that the processing was hugely improved for files with lots of layers: right before the tilecutter kicks in the whole image is flattened for much faster processing.
Finally a little feedback dialog was added to give feedback during the processing the image.
Here’s the script in action
Output is still the same … but faster 🙂
Must hand it out to Adobe: that’s neat!
Composite is a brand new way of creating interactive prototypes. It automatically connects to your Photoshop® documents and converts your mockups into interactive prototypes in seconds. No need to export images or maintain tons of hotspots.
In the same category as the aforementioned Stand In (which looks better though).
Prototypes that feel native, straight from Photoshop.
If more tools like these start popping up I think the whole design in the browser-thing, which — one must admit — is only popular amongst a small group of designers, won’t get any traction with a wider audience as some will resort to this kind of tool because it’s easier for them.
Adobe’s PSD format has been a black box for ages. We’ve built a Ruby library that opens up the PSD format and allows you to easily work with Photoshop documents.
Generator allows you to create image assets in real time as you work, eliminating the tedious steps of copying, slicing and exporting each layer manually, and saving you hours of time. Simply add a file extension to the name of your layer or layer group, and Photoshop will automatically create a JPG, PNG or GIF from the contents of that layer.
