Photoshop add-ons

The greatest Photoshop plugins can improve your experience with Adobe’s industry-leading photo-editing software by customizing it to your specific needs. For many creatives, Photoshop is a must-have tool, and with all of the available plugins, it can be made much more powerful. Photoshop Plugins can help you save time by unlocking additional capabilities and increasing your productivity. It’s difficult to know which Photoshop plugins to use for your workflow, so we’ve compiled a list of our personal favorites to help you decide.

Symmetrically draw or paint

Using the Brutus Symmetry Photoshop plugin, you can easily experiment with symmetrical designs or drawings. Simply lay your grid or guide on your work and watch it reflect in the desired location. You can rotate your work as well as flip layers or selections. It's also simple to save, as you may save either the active layer or a merged PNG version of the current view with a single click. It may not be the most useful plugin unless you work with patterns on a regular basis, but it's a lot of fun to experiment with.

Free plugin

This Photoshop plugin could come in helpful if you're on a tight budget and require stock photos. From within Photoshop, you can use Free Stock Search to look for free stock images on Unsplash, Pixabay, and Pexels. The photo is then downloaded and imported into PS with a single click (or any of the other Adobe app). The plugin is free, as the name implies, so it's a no-brainer. If you need anything more particular, keep reading since we have a few more amazing stock image plugins further down our list.
