Looking for a way to bring your flat, digital products to life? Making a Laptop Mockup with Photoshop is a clever way to showcase your products, freebies or screenshots.
If you've not tried this before, you'll be amazed at how quick is it using a pre-made template.
Why Make a Laptop Mockup in Photoshop?
If you create digital products, you'll know how difficult it can be to bring your products to life. Digital products have the advantage over physical products because you can just make a jpeg and don't have to worry about the time involved in setting up a photo shoot. The problem with a jpeg? It doesn't look 'real'. Just another flat image on a webpage.
Enter the mockup. A read-made, styled photo that's been turned into a Photoshop template. All you need to do is pop your jpeg in and save.
Product mockup templates come in all shapes and sizes. Desktops, laptops and phones, canvas and picture frames, stationery flat lays, clothes, bags, walls and floors, the list goes on.
Fancy having a go? Today's video tutorial will show you how to create a simple laptop mockup. This could be used for a monthly desktop background freebie, a screen shot of a training video for your sales pages, or a preview of your website or shop.
This video will show you how to:
- Insert a preview image into a Photoshop template.
- Resize and reposition the preview.
- Save a low-res jpeg file for the web.
And, that's it. It's just a case of dropping in your product preview, resizing and saving.
