Click here and here for the product mockup files I found online for the last two lessons of this class!
When it comes to launching a new product line, one of the most daunting tasks is making and photographing products for your website and catalogs...especially if you have multiple colorways, patterns, or styles for one product. It's expensive and time consuming, and you just want to start selling your awesome work already!
Now you can master the art of the lean collection launch with this crash course in building product mockups in Adobe Photoshop.
In this class, you'll learn how to:
- Create your own product mockups from scratch
- Photograph your product mockups on an inexpensive homemade backdrop
- Color correct and clean photographs
- Superimpose your custom patterns and artwork onto products to create beautiful product photos
- Prepare your photos for your website, catalogs, linesheets, and portfolio
I've been selling my handmade products online and to stores for years and have used product mockups for everything from making scale and color decisions with my original textile designs (check out my Pattern Design Class!), to building catalogs for the wholesale market.
Learning to create product mockups has saved me days (weeks?) of work by enabling me to make and photograph a product once for multiple styles.
Creating product mockups also comes in handy if you are a pattern designer who wants to build a portfolio of work to present to licensing clients. Show them how amazing your work looks on an endless array of products with the skills you'll learn in this class!
Prior knowledge of Adobe Photoshop is helpful, but certainly not required to take this class. While this is not a comprehensive lesson in all the capabilities of Photoshop, I'll demonstrate each step and how to use my favorite tools so you can jump right in and start building your product mockup files with confidence.
