In order to publish designs from Photoshop to Zeplin, you will need to download the desktop app.
☝️ It is not possible to publish PSD files directly without using the plugins.
Enabling the plugin
After downloading the desktop app, you can enable the plugin from Photoshop menu up top at “Window > Extensions”.
If you do not see Zeplin under “Extensions,” you can try installing the plugin manually by following the details here:
Publishing your designs
To publish your designs from Photoshop to Zeplin:
- Select any layer/artboard in your Photoshop file
- Open the plugin and click “Export selected artboards”
- Select your project or styleguide then click “Import” to start the export process
Seeing file location
Zeplin shows the location of the file containing the screen if you are the same user who exported that screen and using the same machine (computer) used to publish your design. You can directly open the design file in Photoshop by clicking on the file name.
