    Today, InVision is introducing Craft, a suite of three new plugins for Sketch and Photoshop to held developers and designers with their UI mockups.

    The three plugins — Type, Photos and Duplicate — work in unison, but command three unique tenets of the design process.

    Type automatically populates your design from a database of names, email addresses, countries, cities, zip codes or other identifiable information. It helps create a contextually relevant design, which adds a personalized touch if you’re doing freelance work for a client.

    Photos lets you add images from your computer, Dropbox or Unsplash with one click. If you’ve got some stock images saved for wireframing apps or websites, Photos makes short work of adding them.

    Finally, Duplicate lets you copy any element for a new template. It captures the design with “pixel-perfect precision,” which you can use as many times as you need.
