How to present your portfolio like a pro using mock-up templates

Often you don't have the budget for a full on professional photoshoot to display your work, and that's exactly why these 3D mock-up templates are so handy!

The presentation of your work can have a huge impact on the perceived quality of the work. The presentation also says a lot about your work ethic and attention to detail. Enter (drum roll....) 3D Photoshop templates. These 3D templates have been created using 3D software by professionals and really enhance the presentation of your work exponentially! 
You just need to have Photoshop installed to be able to use them.

The best part is how easy they are to use. They often use Smart Objects in Photoshop, so it’s a matter of a few clicks and all the work is done for you. These mock-up files are not always free but usually not more than a few dollars. Definitely worth the investment.

Check out some before & after examples of work. Images have been taken from Pixeden (Highly recommended!). The link's at the end of the article:

All you have to do is download the file, double click the labelled layer to place a flat version of your artwork and hit save. The file then automatically creates the mock-up for you. Most files come with the option of changing the background colour as well.
