BlendMeIn – easiest way to add icons to your Photoshop comps

Are you a Photoshop user? Do you find yourself using icons in your designs from time to time? If the answer is yes then continue reading this post :) Not sure? Suffice to say that Smashing Magazine wrote about this extension last week.

BlendMeIn is a Photoshop extension that allows you quickly search for an icon and then add the selected icon (as a Smart Object) to your composition without leaving Photoshop. There are thousands of icons to pick from and the team is working hard to add more.

Here is an example – on the right hand side you can see the BlendMeIn panel displaying the search results and on the left side you can see the icon integrated into the design.


The extension is free and all the assets are licensed under Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License.

Installing BlendMeIn

Before going to this page to download the extension hear me:

  1. It is only compatible with Photoshop CC and Photoshop CS6
  2. Before starting the installation, make sure Photoshop is closed
  3. Make sure you have installed the latest version of Extension manager (CS6 or CC version)

If you want to provide feedback or have ideas to make it better, don’t be shy and get in touch with the team.
