How Go Media makes their amazing mockup templates, Hamster Style!

Go Media Approved

Here at Go Media, we’re custom template creating machines.

Between our mockup sites Shirt Mockup and Mockup Everything, the mockup packs on our Arsenal and custom templates for clients, we’ve got our system down to a science.

Disclaimer: Creating these nicely organized and layered files is far from easy for that matter, even for us after all these years. So sit with us and stay awhile. We want to make sure we do this the Go Media way.

Ready?

Follow along with me as I create this custom hamster jumpsuit template, from high resolution photograph, to clean and crisp PSD file.

What you're making. Yep!
What you’re making. Yep!

Ideal Conditions

A white/neutral background: This will make tracing the garment much easier.

Red Garments: Red is a great middle value color, which means it shows relatively equal amounts of shadows and highlights. * If you’re not shooting a red garment make sure there is enough contrast between shadows and highlights. In the end, we’ll want to be able to change the garment’s color while keeping it’s natural look.

Sharpness of Image: Sharper images will contain more pixel information. This is crucial editing shadows and highlights.

Duplicate your background.

This is the layer that you’ll be working on. Right click on your background layer to duplicate it then double click to rename that new layer. Once you’ve done this, hide your original background layer.

HamsterDance_ZineImages_1

Photo Cleanup

This will save you time later. Clone tool out any unwanted fuzz, spots, creases, or tags.

Tracing Garment/Subject

Using the pen tool “Paths”, trace just inside the edge of the garment to ensure that you’re not including part of the background. Tracing every detail/fold in fabric will keep it from looking stiff. This is one of the most important steps, and it can take some time. Be patient.

HamsterDance_ZineImages_2

Once you have traced a garment, it will automatically be saved in your “Paths” palette as a “Work Path” – double click to rename it to something more specific. this will allow you to add more paths to the garment later.

HamsterDance_ZineImages_3

Right click on your path and “Make Selection” (click OK on the dialog box that opens). I’m a firm believer in keeping as much of the original photo in tact as possible. To do this I use “Layer Masks”. Ultimately it will make your file size larger, but will save headaches if you need to change something later.

HamsterDance_ZineImages_4

Layer Masking

Now that you have your garment selected, go back to your layers palette and click the layer mask button at the bottom of your layers palette to isolate it. If you ever need to show or hide parts of this garment you can do so in the mask layer without actually deleting any pixels. Add a solid color background to be sure you didn’t miss anything. I usually stick with a middle value gray.

HamsterDance_ZineImages_5

HamsterDance_ZineImages_6

Shadows & Highlights Setup

Duplicate the garment layer twice. These will act as your shadows and highlights. Rename the layers accordingly “GarmentName – Shadows” and “GarmentName – Highlights”  It’s good to get in the habit of organizing your layers. At this point I’ll create a main Garment folder, in this case “Jacket” as well as “Shadow” and “Highlights” folders.

HamsterDance_ZineImages_7

After that, move the layers into their respective folders. Select the Shadows layer and change its blending mode to Linear Burn. This will set your shadows to show a good amount of contrast and vibrancy.

HamsterDance_ZineImages_8

Adding Hue & Curves Adjustment Layers

At the bottom of your layers palette, click on the black and white circle  to add a Hue & Saturation adjustment layer. Change the Saturation to “-100”.

HamsterDance_ZineImages_9

Add a Curves adjustment layer above that.

Currently these adjustment layers affect the entire document. We will need to make them only affect the shadow/highlight layer they’re above by creating a clipping mask. Hold shift to select both the Curves and Hue adjustment layers then right click and “Create Clipping Mask”. You’ll see two arrows appear next to the adjustment layers to indicate that they’ve been clipped into the layer below.

HamsterDance_ZineImages_10

 HamsterDance_ZineImages_11HamsterDance_ZineImages_12

Next, move onto your Highlights Layer and change its blending mode to “Screen”. This will knockout the shadows of the garment and allow you to focus on the amount of highlights that are visible

Repeat steps 4-6 to create the Hue and Curves adjustments for your Highlights Layer.

Optimizing Shadows/Highlights

One of great uses a mockup template is the ability to change the color of the garment. These next steps will ensure that shadows and highlights are consistent no matter what color you apply.

Our next step is to add a White color adjustment layer and clip it into the original garment layer. (you can also apply a color overlay blending mode to get the same result)

*Photoshop automatically adds a mask to that layer – this will come in handy should you need multi-colored sections.

Make sure your Highlights folder is hidden then move onto the Curves adjustment layer that is clipped into the Garment-Shadows layer.

On the left side of the Curves palette, click the button with the exclamation point to get a more accurate view of the histogram. This will show you the brightness values of the image.

HamsterDance_ZineImages_13

Plot points around the three highest values in an arch as shown. From there you can adjust each point to optimize the amount of shadows will appear. Shadows will become lighter the further away from the brightness values you are. If the points are plotted too far away, you run the risk of the shadows looking pixelated and blown out.

HamsterDance_ZineImages_14

 *Every garment’s brightness values will be different, but this arch will serve as a general guide to plotting points.

Once you have the shadows to a place that looks natural, hide your Shadows folder and add a Black color adjustment above the White layer. The same rules apply to editing the curves of the highlights only they’re opposite of the shadows.

HamsterDance_ZineImages_15

Once your shadows and highlights are set up correctly, any color you apply to your base garment layer will look natural.

HamsterDance_ZineImages_16

*If the amount of layers you have is overwhelming and you’re confident with the shadows/highlights you have set – you can always select the Curves, Hue, and Garment layer – right click and merge those layers.

HamsterDance_ZineImages_19

If you’re looking to customize a whole outfit just repeat all these steps for each garment and you could create your very own hamster jumpsuit.

HamsterDance_ZineImages_17

-or clip your artwork into the base garment layer to make some wicked snowboard gear!

HamsterDance_ZineImages_18

Great job!

The city mockup templates

Introducing the City Mockup Templates

Ever wanted to see your art on a bus? Or in a subway station?

Well, let us help you get one step closer to that goal. Simon here, I’d like to introduce you to the latest addition to the ever growing list of Arsenal mockup templates. Readers, meet the city mockup templates. City mockup templates, meet your future users.

What’s in the box?*

The template pack features 4 urban scenes. We have a subway station entrance featuring a big poster like art zone, a bus, one of these gigantic billboards, and a bus stop ad.

The city mockup templates - Subway station

The city mockup templates - Bus stop

The city mockup templates - Billboard

The city mockup templates - Bus

This is for sure a smaller pack than usual. Consider it the 1st volume of a series maybe? This is why we decided to price it at only $9.99!

* It’s okay, this isn’t Se7en or Saturday Night Live, so it’s safe to look inside.

Smart objects inside

Now that we’ve (finally?) jumped on the smart object band wagon, all of these templates are smart object enabled. This means that with just a double click on the smart object’s thumbnail in the layer palette, and a little bit of pasting and re-sizing, your art will automatically adopt the correct perspective, lighting, shadows, etc. I wrote more about smart objects and their advantages when we launched the 2nd version of our vinyl record templates.

The city mockup templates - Smart objects inside

A soft price for the launch

We’re happy to have these finally ready for the Arsenal (our MockUpEverything pro customers probably already saw and/or used these). So to celebrate, here comes the celebratory discount! Use the code smartobjectcity when checking out for $4.99 off. This coupon is valid for the city mockup templates only, and will be active until June 25th, 2013. That means the template pack will be only $5. C’mon, you know you should grab that.

That’s all folks!

That's all folks! Until next time, cheers!

Poster Mockup Templates v2.0: smart object edition

The poster mockup templates get an upgrade (yep, them too)!

Poster mockup templates v2.0: smart object edition

That’s right! We’re back once again with more awesomely updated mockup templates from the Arsenal! Say hello to the Poster Mockup Templates! Now with smart object functionality, these templates allow you to view that artwork you’ve worked so hard on realistically creating, in the perfectly right perspective, with just a few clicks! Yep, it’s that easy! Never heard of a smart object? It’s okay, we’ll get you up to speed!

Poster mockup templates v2.0: smart object edition

And why are they so good you ask?

Well, for starters we’ve taken all the hard work of creating the perfect clipping mask and turned it into a simple double click process. You click twice on the smart object, add your artwork, hit save and just like that your art adopts the perfect perspective, highlights, shadows and everything else!

Wait, there’s more!

We didn’t just add a few smart objects and call it good; we did a complete and total file makeover.

  • We’ve got cleaner and more precise clipping masks.
  • We’ve reorganized the layers for a better ease of use and a more realistic end result.
  • We’ve loaded a variety of prepared colors for the poster backgrounds.
  • We made sure the backgrounds of the files were all of the same color and easily removable to allow for transparent PNG exports (when applicable.)
  • We fine-tuned so many more little details here and there.

Now, after all that we can call it good! I would even go as far as to call it great!

So, what will I get?

The pack consists of 9 PSD files, four of which are smart object enabled and one display scene template!

Oh, and why did we choose to work with MyDesignDeals you ask? Well, John, the guy that runs MDD, blew us out of the water when he showed us that he created a video tutorial on how to use the CD mockup templates for his customers. That guy cares about doing things right. Check this out:

So, What’s new?

Not much, what’s new with you? Oh wait, you meant with the product! Well for starters with this specific pack we worked to incorporate the smart object function twice into one file!

Just like magic your art adopts the perfect perspective, highlights, shadows and everything else!

Vinyl records mockup templates v2.0: smart object edition

The Vinyl Record Mockup Templates Get an Upgrade!

A little bit of history

Hello all! We started releasing our photorealistic mockup templates in August 2008. Since then, we have continuously worked on releasing more of them, but also at making them better. That self improvement process brought us to release one pack upgrade in the past (the men’s crew neck shirt templates), but also lead us to build Mockup Everything, which has templates that go beyond just apparel.

Recently, we realized that we could make some of our templates better and easier to use, by taking advantage of one of the newer functionality of the Creative Suite: the smart object. While smart objects have definitely been around for a little while, we realized through experimentation and thoughtful consideration, that they were indeed the next step to keep our templates at the forefront of the mockup industry.

Smart objects in Go Media's Arsenal templates

So, what are smart objects?

Adobe defines smart object the following way:

Smart Objects are layers that contain image data from raster or vector images, such as Photoshop or Illustrator files. Smart Objects preserve an image’s source content with all its original characteristics, enabling you to perform nondestructive editing to the layer.

One of the articles that prompted our research is a good article written by the fine folks at Viget. It’s from 2009, but still relevant. In particular, that line struck a chord:

Smart Objects are magical containers.

It’s precisely because of that container property that our templates gained an ease of use. It’s important to place your art within the smart object, and the template now takes care of any transformation, distortion, shading, lightning, etc.

Introducing the vinyl record mockup kits v2.0: smart object edition

Vinyl records mockup templates v2.0: smart object edition

When preparing the new version, we almost wanted to label these “Smart object inside,” but we were afraid of Intel’s reaction.

So, what changed?

For this specific pack, we focused our efforts in terms of smart objects on one mockup file, n°4, a  file that has a perspective to it. Before, you had to manually distort your layer to give it the right perspective,  in order to make sure you didn’t mess any of the clipping masks in the process, etc. Now, you just have to double click on the smart objects in the layer palette, and both the sleeve art and the label art will automatically adopt the right perspective, highlights, shadows, etc.

But that’s not it!

Switching one template to smart objects wasn’t enough in our book to call it a new release. So we went ahead and made sure that all of the files in the pack received an upgrade as well. In no particular order, here’s what we refreshed:

  • We cleaned up all of the clipping masks.
  • We separated all of the art clipping masks and color clipping masks for a clearer layer hierarchy, and for a more realistic result.
  • We made sure that all the templates would have some prepared color layers for the sleeve, label, and insert (if applicable.)
  • We properly named and labeled all of the layers and layer groups.
  • We made sure that the background color and treatment would be the same throughout the whole pack.
  • We made sure that the background color could easily be changed or removed, which allows you to save the mockup as a transparent png for an easier inclusion in other documents.
  • And more little details here and there…
