Plug-ins

Guides and Grids are essential for web design and there are a couple of plug-ins that make the task of setting up your framework much easier.

  • GuideGuide is my favorite Grid plug-in. I like that it works as a panel so I can easily access and view it.
  • 960 Grid is an action that allows you to quickly lay down a 12, 16 or 24 column grid
  • Modular Grid is an interactive tool that lets you see the grid you are creating and provides you with a .jpg to use in you Photoshop file as reference

The Grid System is a great resource on designing with grids, offering articles, templates, plug-ins and inspiration.
