We do many funny things for tailoring our Blog and website. And most of the cases we try to do spice up our Blog with different graphics and designs. However, a new Blogger might not have any photo or video editing knowledge to create some unique graphics and video demo for their Blog and website.
Graphics and video editing knowledge is really important for Blogger for taking their blog in the next level.. And most of the newbie face trouble while create their social media profile’s cover page. Latest trend in social media sites to use a attractive cover page for grab attention of social media visitors. However as a new blogger this is really hard to create a unique graphics for your Facebook, twitter, Google Plus cover page. As well as creating a video demo for Blog is really difficult.
If you use any readymade cover from image search engine, then you might get a copyright complain from original author. So we must create cover by ourselves for using on our social media site.
However I have found an amazing site where we can enhance our Blogging experience more fun way. That site is called Placeit. Placeit generally provide Fancy Mockups for users.
Suppose you want to capture a screenshot of your site on iPhone, iPad, iMac and Macbook then you can take screenshot without device frame. But through Placeit site you will able to capture screenshot with different device frame. Similarly if you wish to take a screenshot that people are visiting your website then you can take screenshot of them.
I was well acquainted with this site from 2014 but at that time their feature was limited. Because you have to take screenshot from your PC and after that you have to add on fancy devices. But recently they have brought revolutionary changes. And now you will able to add your site screenshot by adding URL on Placeit site.
What Mockup Stages providing by Placeit?
Placeit currently providing 4 types of Mockup stages . Such as
- Digital FC – You can easily place your website on different smart device and able to take screenshot. This feature is generally help the Small to large Blog and Website to grab some quick and professional Mockups for their sites.

However as a Blogger we can use Digital FX and Demo video for spice up our Blog and social media sites.
How to Generate a Fancy Mockup?
This is most interesting and my favorite to create Digital FX mockups for Blog and websites. However, If you want to add screenshot manually then make sure you use a PNG to get the best result.
Step 1 Visit https://placeit.net and Sign Up on their site. Registration is not mandatory. You can use placeit without registration but for downloading image you must register.
Step 2 You will see different stage of Placeit at the left side of the screen. Select any Mockup Stage for generating screenshots. And select frame from right side.

Step 4 Now click on Download button from top. A popup window will appear. But as a free user you can download only small size image like 400px X 300px. From popup window select SMALL click on Free Download button.
Step 5 Every Placeit account holder will get a small drive and all downloads will be store on drive. Just you have to click on My Drive and place mouse over there and click on Download Button. And Your Image will instantly download.
Similarly you can generate mockup for print and apparel. I hope this tutorial will help your Blogging experience more fun way. However after generating image you can expend the image size by using PhotoShop software. Happy Blogging!!!
