The way we create ultra-realistic mockup files can sometimes leave white garments and designs looking a little grey. Luckily there’s an easy way to make whites pop while keeping the photo-realism.

Add Brightness to Garments

Select the effects layer

Click: Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Brightness/Contrast

Set the layer brightness to 25

Adjust the brightness layer opacity to modify the effect

 add layer

 

Only Add Brightness to the Design

If you’re using a garment that isn’t white and you only want to add brightness to the design follow these steps: 

Select the Brightness/Contrast layer from the previous step

Move the layer above the extra art details layer (make sure the extra art details layer isn’t hidden)

 Right click the Brightness/Contrast layer and select “Create Clipping Mask”

You can increase the brightness level of the adjustment for a greater effect
