With Zeplin, you can bring clarity to your design intention. Designers can keep their work in the design tools, and publish their finalized designs into Zeplin for development. Then, Zeplin automates the entire handoff process. It currently supports Sketch, Adobe XD, Figma, and Photoshop.

When designers export designs into Zeplin, Zeplin will automatically generate all the resources that developers need, like assets, specs, and code snippets, tailored to the platform's needs. Developers can access all these technical resources from the right panel while inspecting designs.

Using Annotations, designers can also document their design intent and product requirements, and even share API endpoints.

Flows in Zeplin helps designers and product managers document all possible paths and behaviors to define user journeys.

If you’re a designer or developer, you can learn how to start using Zeplin from the following articles:
