All About Mock-Ups: source, use, create, organize (an Adobe Photoshop® and Airtable class)
All About Mock-ups: sourcing, using, creating, organising (a Photoshop and Airtable class)
In my previous classes I covered many design essentials including motifs, patterns and presenting artwork on an illustrated style of mock-up. I’m delighted to now welcome you to this new class, which is all about photo-based mock-ups.
During this class I’ll take you through how to source mock-up files, including where to get free ones, and how to use them with both placement graphics and seamless pattern fills. I’ll also show you techniques for creating your own mock-ups from photography, including a quick accurate way to make a mask, blending modes for a realistic finish, smart object setup, and several distortion and warping techniques from simple to more complex. Then I’ll show you how to get organised with a filterable gallery of your files so that choosing a mock-up will be a breeze even when you have hundreds of them.
The class is geared towards designers who want to expand their mock-up resources and get the best out of them. I’ll be using Adobe Photoshop for the demonstrations, so that is the recommended software to follow along.
I’m excited to share lots of mock-up tips and techniques with you, so let’s get started!
