I love PSD mockups—Photoshop files with smart objects that you simply drop your artwork into and have them automatically tweaked to look photo-realistic. This free magazine mockup is perfect for presenting cover and spread designs to your client.
Sometimes you want to view only a single layer in a multi-layer PSD file. Rather than clicking multiple layer view icons (the little Eye next to the layer preview and name), you can speed up the process by Option+Clicking the one layer view icon you want to view. The other layers will turn off. To turn them all back on, Option+Click the layer view icon again.
PixelBuddha has some fantastic T-shirt mockups, free to download. The PSD files are ready for Photoshop users to drop their logos or artwork in with little fuss, with the results rivaling a professional photo shoot.
There’s no better way to show-off a design than placing it in a real-world environment (such as a T-shirt design shown on an actual T-shirt). To do that, you can either photograph it yourself, or use one of these highly convenient and high-quality mockups. The PSD files are set to use with a SmartObject layer you simply double-click to place your design in, save the SmartObject, and boom! You’re mockup is ready to present to your client.
Brusheezy has made this set of 36 cloud computing icons available for free, exclusively for Graphic Mac readers. Not only are these icons provided in PNG and PSD format, but fully editable vector format.
Brusheezy offers a host of design resources, focusing primarily on Photoshop brushes, patterns and textures. Lately, they’ve added PSDs to the mix. If the site looks familiar, it’s because I’ve shared artwork in the past from their companion site Vecteezy.
