Designers rely on various software and services to bring their visions into reality. But which tools are worth your time and money? And, which ones aren’t?

Brendan Miller, one of our Cloud City Development designers and animators, kicks off The Designer’s Toolbox Series (#TheDesignersToolbox) with a comparison between Sketch and Adobe Photoshop.

First characteristic he looks at in the showdown? File size.

Why file size? Because it’s rare that designers don’t pass files back and forth between team members and clients. And, everyone wants to increase the raw and perceived speed of web experiences.

Watch Brendan’s side-by-side throwdown of Sketch and Adobe Photoshop to see which tool generates the smallest file size.

What tips do you have for keeping file size low for your graphics? Do you use Sketch over Adobe Photoshop?
