I can’t find my download link. Where do I get it from?

The plugin is stuck on loading screen

CSS Hat 2 loading

This usually mean you don't have Generator enabled. To fix this, go to Photoshop->Preferences->Plug-Ins... and check the "Enable Generator" option. On Windows, it's located in Edit->Preferences->Plug-Ins....

This issue can happen if you just upgraded your Photoshop to a new mayor version (like to CC2015 from CC2014). Adobe updates Photoshop in such way that it will remove existing generator Plugins. To fix this, please re-install the plugin. If you don't have the installer anymore, you can download it from your Source Profile.

What can CSS Hat do?

CSS Hat is a Photoshop Plugin that lets you easily translate layer styles into CSS. Just select any layer and the code will appear in the panel. It even works when you select multiple layers – you will get the CSS code with selector for each layer.

On the export side, CSS Hat outputs pure standards-based CSS3 (and optionally vendor-prefixed properties for all major browsers), LESS, SASS and Stylus. You can also create your custom templates for your preferred languages.

Which layer styles does CSS Hat support?

CSS Hat supports these layer styles:

CSS Hat 2 supported layer styles

Other styles are not supported simply because of the fact that they are almost impossible to recreate using CSS. However, we are always innovating and trying to find other ways around.

What’s new in the latest version?

We have added multiple layers export, better support for text layer styles, custom output templates, middleware system, syntax highlighting… and many more features and bug fixes. You can read all about it on our landing page or in the change log.

Does CSS Hat work with text layers?

CSS Hat works great with text layers! The support for text layers has been dramatically improved in the latest update. CSS Hat can now give you properties like font-size, font-style, font-weight and text-decoration like line through, uppercase, small caps and underline.

CSS Hat also detects if there are more font styles in one text layer and automatically makes respective CSS selectors for each of them.

Which operating systems and Photoshop versions does CSS Hat support?

CSS Hat works on both Mac OS (10.7+) and Windows (XP+) machines with Photoshop CC2014 or higher installed. Unfortunately, the latest version does not support CS6 and lower. However, you can still download the old version which is compatible with CS4, CS5, CS6 and CC.

I do not have Photoshop CC, how can I access older version of CSS Hat?

You can access all of the previous CSS Hat versions directly in your Source Profile. Just click the link “Version 2.0” and a pop-up with the change log should appear. All of the version are available to download from there.
