SpecKing Photoshop Plugin Makes Measurements and Design Specs Easy
SpecKing is Photoshop plugin which will make your life easier to measure distances, sizes and font properties in any PSD file. It works with layered files but also can be used with flat designs to get measurements as overlays. Overlays will be placed on top of layers stack properly named, organized, grouped and won't mess your layered document.
How things worksSpecKing is extremely easy to use, just select layer in Layers panel then choose what you want to measure on SpecKing panel. By default all distances or sizes that this plugin can measure are selected. Lastly click Measure Sizes/Distances and wait a second.
When SpecKing finish its job, you will see in your file labels with measurements. SpecKing will also create top level group on top of Layers panel with nested groups and separate layers for boxes and labels. Everything will be properly named with name of measured layer in front of group name. Excellent, isn't it? Exactly what you need and what one can expect from this excellent plugin.
For flat files you will need to create selection around an object to successfully run plugin and to get desired sizes or distances. In case you have text layer and you need text properties, process is pretty much the same: select type layer, choose properties from SpecKing panel then click Get Properties button.
