Adobe XD Plugins — A Few Suggestions to Make Your Job Easier

Adobe XD was not be my first choice among the app I used for designs when published first. But developed fast and now Adobe XD is my first choice. In the beginning, one of the reason I did not use was there is insufficient number and variety of plugins. But XD plugins have come a long way as like as app itself.

I decided to share some plugins that I use. Some other time I tell why I am using Adobe XD too, maybe.

Good readings…

Lorem Ipsum

Lorem Ipsum is one of the best friends of designers. With this plugin, instead of going to lipsum.com every time, I can quickly fill text boxes with Lorem Ipsum when needed. There are also various settings in the plugin, you can use them to place them the way you want.

Confetti

You can create confetti effects with texts, shapes etc. In other words, you can randomly scatter the selected element around. When I see for the first time, I think “Why would I do such a thing?”. But, in some point I used plugin for a design and loved it.

For example I created this image in about 15 seconds.

List Plugin

Have you ever tried making a bullet list in Illustrator? If you tried, you understood what I try to say. Here’s the same feeling in Adobe XD. This plugin is using for this situation. It turns the texts you have selected into a list by putting dots/apostrophes at the beginning.

Please use.

Stock Image

I need stock images, you need stock images, everyone is. Not maybe today, but tomorrow. :)

With this plugin, you can import a stock image from Adobe Stock. Choose a shape, make a search from the plugin, choose an image an ta da! Your shape has an image now!

There are too many alternative plugins but I am using Stock Image plugin because of plugin have better performance compared to others.

Image Optimizer

It can be said that I use this plugin frequently. Especially when delivering the design (it can be via the airship, it can be a direct XD file delivery) I prefer to deliver the visuals in the design by optimizing. Actually, this is my personal preference. Even if you don’t.

There is more plugin I used of course. but if we make a sorting, these are the Adobe XD plugins that I use the most. In the future, I will share other plugins I use or new plugins I discovered.

See you for now.

Thanks for reading.
