Creating a scrolling mockup in Photoshop requires you to have a way to record your screen, I like using Quicktime Player on my mac or Loom, and an idea of what you want your end result to be like.
Are you using a stock image as a background? Or maybe just the cutout of a computer on a plain color background (branded color preferably!)
Here is where you decide if you’ll be using a stock image or setting up a plain background.
For this example I’m going to be using a stock image from our Fresh offices collection inside the Atelier21 Co Styled Stock library!
By dragging and dropping it into Photoshop you’ll see it act just as another layer, nothing fancy. Then size it to match the size of the screen.
It will ask you if you want a video timeline or frame animation, choose video.
Your video will have a set duration, if the other layers don’t match it will look off, so simply grab the right end of the layers inside the timeline and click + drag to make them match the duration of the video layer.
Now that your video is places and the layer all match the length of the video, you are ready to export the video! Select a location and save it 🙂
And tada! 🎉 Your scrolling mockup is ready to use! I turned mine into a gif, but I use the video version rendered from Photoshop in Instagram since GIFs are not supported there.
Oh in so many ways! Scrolling mockups are a great way to showcase your new website, show an offer, add a dynamic element to your sales page, give a sneak peek inside a program or membership, or simply for fun!
These are great to use on both your website and social media (and even email marketing if you create a gif since video is not a supported element on an email).
