The Freepik’s team launched on October 1 their last new project, Flaticon (since that day in Beta version), the world’s biggest vector icon database with more than 10000 high quality vector icons. A project with free files, free to use, even for commercial purposes.
But the most important release is the Flaticon Photoshop plugin, that allows you to access to the Flaticon database without leaving your work environment in an updated, synchronized way.
Once it’s installed, Flaticon plugin lets you improve graphic designer’s work dynamics by not having to leave the Photoshop desktop every time they need an icon to incorporate it into a design. What makes it different from other free Photoshop plugins available online is that you can adjust its settings depending on your needs.
The plugin let’s you look directly at the database and incorporate the icons to Photoshop in an easy way, and also customize and adapt them, making your work easier. Until now, it was necessary to import any icon vector to Photoshop using Adobe Illustrator.
This new plugin arises, as the rest of the project developed by Freepik, in order to make easier the designers and developer’s life, besides following the trends of international design that tends to vector, as it’s customizable to any kind and size with a responsive result.
On the Internet there are many pages where to find free icons, so what makes Flaticon different?
