Instantly Document Your Photoshop Files With Ink

It’s true that a picture’s worth a thousand words. It’s also true that you could end up typing more than a thousand words to precisely document all the layers, type, shapes, and effects in your Photoshop documents. But with the free plug-in Ink by chrometaphore, you can skip all that tedious measuring and typing, and instantly gather precise specifications. That way there’s no guesswork, and no wasted time when you have to hand a design off to someone else to work with, or just when you want all the specs handy for your own reference.

Just install Ink in Photoshop CS6 or CC and click the buttons in the panel to create grouped documentation layers showing the measurements and properties of objects or selections.

Voila! Instant accurate info that you can show or hide just by changing the visiblity of the layers in the Layers panel.
