When Photoshop is too heavy and mockup software is too light, Easel is the middle-of-the-road solution for designers, product managers, and developers. The in-browser web design application can be used to quickly generate prototypes based on elements from existing pages.
Download Easel’s Google Chrome extension or bookmmarklet to get full use out of the web-based application. The Google Chrome extension allows you to copy elements from your existing website pages and paste those elements onto your Easel documents. Create clickable prototypes by making certain elements in your documents link to other documents. The genius behind Easel is that you can do this without typing a single line of code. Go a step further by viewing your prototype in a browser and designing with CSS3. Once again, this can be done without typing any code. If you already use Bootstrap on your website, then you can use Easel to generate markup that can be dropped directly into your site.
When your prototype is complete, send a unique link to your colleagues. Anyone who has the link can leave feedback on your prototype. Easel’s commenting feature allows collaborators to highlight the specific parts of the design they are most interested in talking about. All previous commenters are notified via email each time additional feedback has been added.
