Now that you’ve set up an online store, you’re probably trying to figure out the best way to capture product shots. But who says you have to use a camera? Many sellers have started using digital mockups for product shots, which let you create quick, consistent product photos for your site.
What Are Digital Mockups and Why Do People Use Them?
Digital mockups are essentially digitally-illustrated images of your products. By using digital mockups you can avoid having to do product photography, photo uploading and image editing.
This may sound like a complicated job best left to a designer, but you actually don't need a ton of skills to create your own mockups! If you have basic knowledge of Adobe Photoshop you’ll be able to use these helpful platforms to create your product images.
