    How to make mock ups?

    I use mock ups for presenting my graphic designs. Usually I buy them. But I was wondering, how to make mock ups by yourself?

    you can use indesign to create very good layout. For webdesign: visio and excel with visualbasic plugin good luck!

    Normally, I design them-print them-assemble them and then take photos for any kinds of presentations I create. This way I have a physical sample to show the printer too for quoting and review to make sure that what I want can actually be created.

    I create a layout in Illustrator or Indesign and I print them large on 13x19. Then I mount them on black mat board and crop to 12x18. That is the process of the graphic design department at my school. If it is a product, I will take the "product photography" and mount that as well.

    Depending on the mockup you want, if it's just digital, you can use placeit.breezi.com, for instance.

    mockups for print production are easy to make if you have a wide color printer. I use Epson 3800 A2 size. For packaging I am using ESKO plugins.

    Physically or digitally? If you mean digitally, get a camera with a good lens with a great aperture and, most of all, get great lighting. Then take some shots of the object(s) you wish to turn into a mockup, brush away any logos already there that you need g and voilá! instant mockup material.

    I think really building the things and taking pictures is a great way as you can also bring the mock up. Clients love to see "real" thing even if it's not perfect, they get the idea and they are all excited about it!

    If you're sending it digitally, you can use InDesign or Illustrator to put together some great materials.

    In Photoshop. If you were, creating a digital mock-up of a water bottle, for example: (1) Begin with a photo. (2) Place flattened label graphic from native program (InDesign, Illustrator, etc.) (3) IMPORTANT! Convert layer to Smart Object (4) Apply whatever transformations, effects, etc. that are necessary to make label look realistic.
    Should the label need corrections/updates, simply double click on the Smart Object layer and replace the original, unmanipulated label. Save and close. When you return to the mock-up, the label will be automatically updated! Good luck!

    I purchased a couple photoshop mockups on sale to see how they set up the layers and effects to make them look photoreal. It's an interesting mix of blending modes and such. Worth checking that route out if you have the time to dig deep into some else's files. Good luck!

    It really depends on the stage of "mocking up" and what the final medium is.

    For websites and web/mobile apps, you can wireframe in a wide range of apps from Balsamiq and Omnigraffle to Illustrator, but the final comps are usually best to do in Photoshop because that's where you'll be cutting raster graphics (unless it will be all-vector, in which case Illustrator or some other vector-based approach will work).

    I think the best way to learn is to take a look at the layers of a finished product.
