⚠️ Zeplin currently only works for Photoshop CC 2015 and up, make sure you have a supported version installed.

Installing the plugin

When you launch Zeplin's Windows app, the Photoshop plugin should be installed automatically and you should see the Zeplin plugin in Photoshop. If the plugin is not visible, you can install it from Zeplin's menu up top: “Help > Install Photoshop Plugin”

Did you try to install via the menu and didn’t work?

If installing from the menu doesn't work, you can try installing the plugin manually. This requires two different components to be installed, the plugin and the panel.

To install the plugin:

  • Download the plugin from here.
  • Unzip it and copy the folder called io.zeplin.photoshop-plugin.
  • Paste it under Photoshop’s Plug-ins\Generator  folder.

And finally, the panel:

  • Download the panel from here.
  • Unzip it and copy the folder called io.zeplin.photoshop-panel.
  • Press Win+R, type %APPDATA%\Adobe\CEP\extensions , and press enter. (If the CEP  folder doesn't exist, you can create it manually.)
  • Paste it to the revealed explorer window.

Now when you restart Photoshop, you should see the Zeplin plugin in the menu up top: “Window > Extensions > Zeplin”
