HackingUI, a website focused on interaction and front-end design, is sharing a handy script for SVG fans.

It is a Photoshop script that automates the exporting of Photoshop layers to SVG.

Photoshop to SVG

The script is smart enough to detect only the right layers and searches for the layer names that end with ,svg.

Simply, no more going through each layer one-by-one for the conversion and all work is done in a single click.

Each social network has its own dynamics when it comes to customizing the social profiles and pages. Different requirements and sizes.

Social Kit is a free Photoshop plugin that focuses on simplifying the design of such pages and profiles.

It currently supports 4 networks: YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and Google+.

The plugin has full-sliced and editable templates where the outputs look just the same as “how they will look when live”.

There is always a search for better and simpler. And, the same goes for content management systems.

Although we have powerful tools like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, there is a huge interest for focused ones (remember Ghost).

Dropplets

Dropplets and Leeflets are two separate apps, by the same team, where one of them is focused on blogs and the other one on other types of websites.

They both don’t require a database but use Markdown-formatted files instead for the content.

The scripting language is PHP, content can be edited while browsing and both of them are being updated/improved regularly.

Buffer is one of the most popular apps for managing multiple social media profiles, scheduling posts and more.

Smartimage, a cloud-based brand image management application (that was featured before at WRD), now has new features offering a more powerful, visual experience.

The application helps companies to manage + share images and other visual content that workgroups and small businesses use everyday for events, promotions and brand communications.
Besides all the core features like auto-conversion to popular formats and sizes, sharing/embedding and public/private galleries, there are now features like:

  • Custom image gallery options – Users can now choose which display and action features to enable for each collection including on/off switches for downloading and sharing files.
  • Embeddable image gallery carousel – Images can be displayed in a stunning super-sized carousel or elegant thumbnail gallery.
  • Robust digital imaging – Dynamic resizing allows Smartimage to host your images and easily display them on other web pages while maintaining their quality.
  • Updated user interface (UI) – A cleaner interface puts the focus on the user’s brand and high-quality images.
  • Faster speeds globally – Everywhere in the world, Amazon’s CloudFront Content Delivery Network (CDN) provides faster upload and download speeds.

Smartimage now offers more control and attractive, dynamic ways of presenting and sharing high quality content, while emphasizing simplicity.

An API is also in the roadmap of Smartimage which will allow integrating it further. P.S. The app offers a full set of features for getting the most out of these assets and you can find the complete list here.

Elegant Themes, a well-known WordPress themes company with high-quality resources, has just released an extraordinary WordPress theme.

It is called Divi and it is probably the most flexible WordPress theme ever; in means of design and functionality.

Elegant Themes - Divi

The theme has a unique drag ‘n’ drop builder that allows you to add sections, rows, columns or widgets and design the layout.

Into any row or column, you can insert the built-in modules like text, image, slider, pricing table, contact form, tabs, portfolio and even shop.

Each module comes with its own options and, optionally, their appearance can be customized by injecting custom CSS.

Simply you can create countless number of layouts with Divi and, whatever you create, it is responsive, which is awesome.

Divi

There are multiple pre-built layouts to get started quickly. These include homepages for business, commerce, portfolio and blog.

Also, Divi comes with a contact page, a project case study, a blog, portfolio, and shop as well.

You can watch this video below to learn more about it and also read more about it in Elegant Themes’ Blog.

Thematic design resources are great when it comes to working on projects that match with those themes.

Oceanica is a free icon set with a nautical theme and has 120 unique items related to it.

The set is in vector (.AI), has a slick-yet-simplistic design (mostly line art) and free to use in personal or commercial projects.

Selling goods and/or services through web is great and there are lots of tools to accomplish that.

However, it is hard to analyze sales, revenues, expenses, refunds, etc. if we accept payments through multiple providers and multiple sites (anyone searched for a transaction at PayPal probably experienced this).

Putler, an Adobe AIR-based application, is a powerful sales analytics companion to anyone selling through web.

Putler

It is integrated with all popular payment gateways (PayPal, Stripe, Authorize.net, 2Checkout..) and e-commerce softwares (WooCommerce, Shopify, BigCommerce..).

Additionally, with its API, any other gateway can be integrated pretty quickly.

The app provides you a quick snapshot of the sales, revenues, best selling products and more for a given period.

Also, you can easily see the trend, all transactions of a customer and even estimates in a chart-supported interface.

Putler Sales View

Putler is not all about viewing but can perform actions like issuing refunds or managing subscriptions which would normally take a time from the payment provider’s web interface.

Although a connection is required to pull the data from payment providers and e-commerce apps, after that, working offline is possible too. And it works fast when offline.

They are also working on a new mobile app and the web version will be released next year.

Additional free month to all

When you sign-up for a paid plan, using the coupon code wrdfreemonth, you get an additional month for free. Thanks to the guys at Putler for offering this.

P.S. The offer is valid until 31 Dec 2013
