20 Fresh Photoshop Extensions for Any Designer

Photoshop has come a long way since its birth into the designer community. In the beginning, its primary purpose was for photo manipulation and editing. Over the years it has become way more than that. Web Designers make great use of Photoshop to create unique and inspiring designs. I personally prefer it over any application for web design and even UI design (and yes, I've tried Sketch). Adobe, the makers of Photoshop, has recently released Photoshop 2014 CC. In doing so a lot of third-parties have authored exciting new tools and extensions that any designer can appreciate. Below I'll share 20 Fresh Photoshop Extensions any designer could benefit from.
