3 Free Web Design Tools

Winter seems like it is dragging on, doesn’t it? Need some inspiration? Here are three free web design tools to get your creative mind pumping again.

1. ColorZilla

Sick of taking screenshots and opening them up in Photoshop to sample a color to find its hexadecimal number? ColorZilla enables web designers to identify pixel colors, copy color codes to other apps, and forge beautiful hexadecimal palettes.

2. GIMPshop

No doubt that Photoshop is the go-to editor for web designers in Utah. However, that and other graphics software choices can be pricey. This makes Adobe’ish interfaces like GIMP more and more attractive. This free Photoshop alternative includes layers, filters, masks, channels and tons of other goodies.

3. CSS Button Generator

A browser-based tool worth bookmarking for any web designer. CSS Button Generator lets web designers make stylish buttons with or without rounded corners and with solid or gradient colors. The quality looks so good that you would think they are images, but these buttons are 100% CSS.
