Create mockups with Photoshop - that's how it works

Mockups you have created yourself have significant advantages: On the one hand, they fit your project perfectly, and on the other, you can be sure that no one else is using the same image. Read how to create a mockup below. You can also see our illustrated instructions below.

  1. Of course, for your own mockup you have to take a picture first. Depending on your needs, the motif can be a smartphone, television or laptop.
  2. Then open the shot image in Photoshop.
  3. Next, create a rectangle using the toolbar on the left. This should roughly cover the area that you plan to replace later.
  4. Now right-click on the created rectangle in the layer menu and select "Convert to Smart Object".
  5. Now navigate to "Edit" -> "Transform" -> "Distort". With the selected tool, slide the corners of the rectangle onto the corner points of the area to be replaced (e.g. a laptop display).

Photoshop: insert image in your own mockup

When you have created the template, you can easily insert any image for the area of ​​the rectangle:

  1. To do this, double-click the rectangle layer so that it opens in a new tab.
  2. Now you can insert any picture you want. For example a screenshot of your project.
  3. Save and return to the first file. You will now see that the rectangle has changed into your picture.
