Adobe Illustrator Extensions and Scripts

I have added a new Downloads section to this site. In this section you will find a collection of Adobe Illustrator native extensions as well as Illustrator scripts written in JavaScript (technically, JavaScript Extension). These scripts and extensions were created to help improve my own workflow and now I am sharing them, free-of-charge.

My primary job is as a full-stack web developer but I also derive a good portion of my income from digital illustration and stock illustrations and icons. Creating, and especially publishing, an icon collection with hundreds, even thousands of icons, is a highly repetitive and time-consuming process. Most of these scripts were created to improve my own workflow and to automate as many of the repetitive tasks as possible. After all, icon designers only make money when creating new products. Everything else is a loss, so the more time that can be recaptured, the more time designers can spend creating new products, instead of doing the laborious tasks associated with preparing the files for upload to the various marketplaces.
