How to live without sketch & rock with Photoshop (yeah for windows PC)

Let’s admit it first and freely.

As an UI designer I regularly work on Adobe Creative Cloud apps on Windows . Such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effect etc. On day I discover the one of the greatest invention for UI designers, Sketch. It makes the design process 10x faster .

As like other I was really exited about sketch, but wait !!! what ??? It’s available only on MacOS. You gotta be kidding me 🙁

 

ok, Not every one can afford a high configuration MacBook for graphics designing. So what can we do ?

since then I had a vision to live without sketch and rock with the power of Photoshop for windows. this not easy ,I have spent countless sleepless night for find proper alternative for sketch for windows. But you know no luck.

But I’ve found some awesome things that help me to fight hard with sketch. Lets have a look at them .
