Getting Started with Adobe XD

What is Adobe XD?

Adobe XD or Adobe Experience Design is a part of Adobe Suite which primarily focuses on UI Design, UX Design, Prototyping, Wireframing, Responsive Web Design etc. It helps people to communicate and iterate on Designs or Prototypes faster than any other tool available in market. Its helps developers or designers to generate Low-Fidelity or High-Fidelity Designs.

What makes it stand ahead of its Competitors?

Taking care of the competitors like Sketch, Figma etc. Adobe XD has some really exciting features such as:

• Startup Screen

As soon as we launch XD it offers various canvas size according to the devices you want to get started with. Along with which it offers you UI kits of Apple iOS, Material Design and Microsoft Windows. This helps you to use some native UI elements.

• Filling UI with the Content

Getting your canvas ready for designing is very simple. You just have to drag image from anywhere and drop it over the object (Rectangle or Circular Placeholder); XD will automatically apply mask over the image and resizing or image scaling automatically adjusts to the shape change.

• Repeat Grid

You don’t have to copy-paste or duplicate objects every time, rather just select the group and adjust grid where you want to it to be repeated.

• Prototyping

This may be called the best feature of Adobe XD. No need of extra plugins or services to create High Fidelity clickable prototypes. Just link the pages to each other and preview the prototype in separate window. A smartphone can also be connected in order to view the interactive prototype.

• Resizing of Text

The text resizing works same as of Photoshop and Illustrator. SELECT & RESIZE – that’s all you have to do. This is far better than Sketch since it doesn’t let you resize text like other objects.
