I love the way people have used their creative talents to develop a simpler way to achieve our goals. I’m talking about the developers of Google Chrome extensions here – my life will never be the same.
First we have Loom, it is a video platform that allows me to record my screen and walk through videos with my clients and explain every little part of the design process. There is a microphone where I can record myself explaining things, while I show them each page – seriously just as well as if we were face to face. If you’ve purchased one of my Shopify templates, you’ll see this in action in my step-by-step video tutorials of how to install them.
Next we have What the Font because you can just click on it and it will show you the font any website is using. How often do you see fonts that are to die for?? — also can we just pause for a second and think about how crazy talented and creative people are? — With this extension you can seriously just click the font on any website, and it will tell you what font was used.
And third I love Go Full Page because it will take a picture of an entire web page without you having to do a bunch of screenshots and stitch them all together. It might be the best thing that’s ever happened in my design business. This is what I use to create my listing photos for my Shopify templates. Bonus: The photo quality is SO CLEAR with this extension. I’ve seen other apps that can provide a full screen photo, but the image just comes out blurry and unprofessional.
What did I miss? Let me know your favorite Chrome extensions, and what I should be using to make my job quicker and easier.
