Plugins helpful in creating and editing graphics within Figma instead of opening Adobe CC
Figma is undoubtedly the best tool there is for UX design and in this article, I outline some of the best plugins UI designers can use to create illustration/graphic design assets within Figma instead of opening Adobe CC. Hoping this article could reduce the number of clicks, speed up your workflow and potentially avoid the hassle of importing assets back on Figma again. And, yes — all these plugins are free.
In the list below, I have mentioned the intent and the solution plugin. Plugins are underlined and have been linked if you want to download them right away. So, here goes:
1. Remove Background from an image — ‘Remove BG’
Ideally, to remove the background of any image you may have to edit the image in Photoshop. An alternate method I have used within Figma in the past is to select the image and use the ‘multiply’ option from the Layer menu to make the background disappear, and this is not always effective. But Remove BG is a killer plugin that will remove the background of any image with just one click, all within Figma.
