Let's face it, setting up layouts in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator is a big hassle and that's why we decided to create what is probably the best solution to solve that exact problem. Create layouts in lightning speed!
Grid Calculator Basic Edition is the only tool you'll ever need to setup your grid or non grid-based layouts for Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Wether you're working with identities, package design or creating websites, this software will help you get the result you're after easily. The problem with Photoshop and Illustrator is that there is no easy way of doing this in the actual softwares.
Grid Calculator Basic Edition now comes with support for Mac Retina Display.
The software is divided into two section. In the second section you can easily generate layouts for your web design and also export .css file. If you're working with projects where you need to place elements in exact positions you could setup a non grid-based document and enter the value in selected unit. For example, if you're working with an advert where the logo always has to be 30 mm from the right edge you could easily setup a layout to help with you that, just check the Customize checkbox for the side margins and for the right margin enter 30 mm and then export to Photoshop or Illustrator. A guide will be placed in that location. You can also setup the bottom margin if needed.
If you would like you could setup your own type area inside the margins that you define and the leading will automatically fit perfectly inside. How about working with a square grid? No problems at all! This software takes it so much further then the simple online grid calculators and saves you the hassle of having to visit a website everytime you need to setup your layouts.
Grid Calculator Basic Edition allows you to save presets (layouts) based on clients. If you're working with interfaces for applications then you'll love this software even more! Sign up via the web form to download and try your demo now!
