TexTools is a free addon for Blender with a collection of professional UV and Texture related tools. Back in 2009 I released the Original TexTools for 3dsMax. This is my first blender addon, more features will be added in the future.

Easy baking: Just select a type to bake, select the object and press ‘Bake’
Bake pair tools: Organize, select by type or set makes baking much easier
Bake explode tool: Moves bake object sets apart so its easier to create clean bakes.
