Photoshop Timer Panel

Photoshop Timer Panel

I created this Photoshop Timer Panel based on an idea given by Chris Casey.

It is not as detailed and functional as he and I would have liked,  but I still hope it is useful to track the time you spend on specific files.

I will research a bit more to try to add a time recording functionality. Ideas are welcome.

This is a CS6 extension only, if you want a CS5 version, please leave a comment saying so.

To install it just double click the “CS6 timer by DMONZON.zxp” file and the Adobe Extension Manager CS5 will come up with instructions.

Once the extension is installed,  the panel can be opened  from “Window” menu>”Extension” submenu>”CS6 timer by DMONZON.zxp”.

Share it and Download
Please go to  to Download  a newer version.

Don’t miss all the other panels & tools

    i love the timer panel. Thanks.
    You can build in a function of recording / monitoring time

    It measures the time for the open file and saves the result in a text file (with the name of the file) automatically or manually.

    Auto start and stop timer based on the usage of tools. If the user doesn’t use any tool for a period of time the timer will automatically stop. The period of time is editable. Even viewing the artwork in Full screen is a part of the job so that condition can be added.

  8. Would love to see a CS5 version, can’t afford to upgrade yet >_<

    Though the extensions load into Adobe Extensions Manager CS6, they’re not available via Photoshop’s window/extensions menu. Any thoughts?

    i have the same problem: the extension is not available in the extensions menu.
    CS6 64bit Win7 german 64 bit


  11. Looks great! Would love to see this integrated with our time tracking app Paymo ( – a lot of designers use our app.

    Your time panel is a great and very useful extension.
    I just wonder if you are planing for a CC version.
    And if i may come with a wish for improvement, it would be very convenient if
    there even was a bottom to press if you want the time to be imbedded in the
    XMP data in the current file.

    Have a nice day =)
