How Make a Reusable Mockup in Photoshop Using Smart Objects

Hi there, this video is all about doing our own mock ups. We're going to start with a blank magazine veteran graphics and some shadows and some highlights. What's really cool about it is that we get to easily update it savored and in our mock up, look at that magically updates bends around. Let's work through that process now. Alright to get started, let's go to 16 mock ups and open up magazine blank. So this is one I've got from a stock library site. What we need to do now is mock up our design like you saw at the beginning there. First up let's import our mock up. So our mock up. I'm going to go to place embedded And your exercise files under 16. This is the spread if you've done my in design courses is one of the things we make in there. So what we'll do is we'll use magazine spread one pdf. So I just exported this from in design as a pdf in her place. Okay, size wise, probably needs to be a little bit smaller and hit enter. So first thing we need to do is it's a smart object. Right...

? And we can see the little icon we've got used to it now but we need to make it another smart object or rust arise the layer, right click or rust rise. Why? Because edit transform we need these options to work and they don't work straight after that import. So I'm going to right click it and say you are again, a smart object, nothing really changes except edit transform and we want this one called we don't know so now we're going to spend our time moving this around and jiggling it to try and get it to fit this magazine. And I guess the thing to note is that because we're using a smart object When we do get into position and we spend our you know 10 minutes or half an hour getting this thing looking perfect means next time we can just use that smart object, update it like we did in the last video And life is quick and good, spent ages when I worked at an agency before I learned any of this stuff. I was maybe about 10 years ago I spent ages. One of my jobs was to mock up all the work from the agency and stick it up on our website using different kind of trying to make it look real without actually having to photograph the actual magazines laid out. Man. I want to save some time every time I start from scratch. Alright so I'm gonna work my way through this and you can hang around or just skip ahead a few minutes or you can watch the trick is with these lines here, if you are hanging around is you're getting the edges first. So just get the edges rough. Don't spend ages getting the edges, you can see I'm not zoomed in yet. I'm just kind of getting it rough because there's a lot of can you see this inside? But it needs a bit of work and you can just click and drag the inside and there's a little bit of fudging, you're watching the lines, but you're also looking at your artwork, you can see there. This is just make sure both grabbing the handles but also dragging the inside just to get it to look right. I feel like that's pretty good. Now I can spend a bit more time zooming in just to get these edges overlapping nicely. Alright, I'm happy with it once you're happy with it hit return. So that's pretty cool. Let's add a couple of extra bits just to make it look a little bit more believable. What I'm gonna do is I'm gonna grab a new layer, this is going to be my shadow layer, I'm gonna grab my brush tool, I'm gonna pick up big fizzy brush Capacity is going to be at 30% and I want my foreground color to be black and I'm clicking once at the top here, clicking another time down the bottom, How big is that? It's probably a little too big The capacity of this brush 40%. Maybe you can always lower it down, right? So I'm going to have it actually get into this fold here and maybe a 2nd 1. It's a bit smaller, kind of build it up into that corner there. Now, the trouble is it's it's going all over the edges. So what you can do is you can make the shadow layer clip to the layer underneath. The long way is under layer and you can create clipping mask that works or undoing it just holding down the option key and clicking between the two or the old key on a Pc and just clips the shadow to the magazine spread. Let's do another one. This one here is going to be the highlights the same thing as before. Except I'm using white is my foreground color. Maybe X. Just toggles white. The white and black. So clicking once holding shift, clicking again, just kind of runs it through its way too big. Uh huh. And they're passing, I've turned down you can have it up, I'll keep mine at 40 because what I want to do is maybe just lower the opacity. Actually I might not lower capacity. I might use a layer mode. Okay, I'm just going to cycle through them until I find oh, that looks good, soft light, just a nice subtle one same thing. Hold down the option key on a Mac or a Pc and they can both clip to the magazine spread. So we've done our mock up. It looks good and then we have to come back next month to lay it out again. What we can do is just double click on the smart object come in here and I'm just going to file place the magazine spread to. Thanks very much Return, save how come is that? So you spend a little bit of time fixing it up. I might have to work on the shine. It kind of looks like the magazines bent a little bit with my not very subtle shadow. Okay, so I might look at redoing those, but I hope you can see it doesn't take super long to kind of mock up your own version, your own custom stuff. Something that relates to you. You might be working for a company that doesn't do magazines. It might be boxes or packaging or e books or something that you want to mock up once spend the time, but then be able to update it real quick later on. Alright, so we've done a magazine spread, you get a box, you could do a wine glass, candy jar, anything you like. Just make sure that you when you bring in your smart object. Okay? Or go file place, make sure that once it's then you've got to convert it into a smart object again so that we get all the cool transformed settings. All right, let's get into the next mock up video

Great class, but outdated PS version. It was confusing sometimes. Some tools are not in PS anymore and more tools have been added which is not included in the course.
