Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Gary Simon, and welcome to my course, Creating Mockup Templates in Photoshop. I've been a freelance designer for the last 15 years, and I've worked with countless clients on a wide variety of projects. The mockup templates in Photoshop are hugely popular, and they're very valuable for graphic designers, as they allow them to showcase identities and other graphical elements on portfolios and to potential clients. This provides viewers with a real-world environment from which to display designs. Now this course is going to teach you exactly how you can make these Photoshop templates so that you can either use them for yourself or even sell them. Some of the major topics that we will cover include understanding compositing basics, establishing mockup themes, photographing a mockup scene, and finally using Photoshop to create the mockup template. By the end of this course, you will have a solid understanding of how to use Photoshop to create beautiful mockup templates. I hope you'll join me on this journey to creating mockup templates in Photoshop at Pluralsight.
