Tips & Documentation for Photific Mockups

Mockups Aren’t Working in Illustrator / GIMP / Affinity / etc.

Occasionally we'll have customers ask if they can use the Photoshop mockups in other software programs like Illustrator, Affinity Photo, Gimp, etc. Unfortunately the short answer is no, but you can use the instant mockup generator without any software. Our mockup generator is an online tool that operates in your web browser without any graphics software required.

Please note: we don't recommend using the Photoshop mockups in software programs other than Photoshop and we don't offer support for this use, but you may be able to get them working with limited functionality. Photoshop is a powerful tool that allows us to integrate some advanced functionality in the mockups. Some of the mockup file features that other software programs struggle with include: nested layer masks, nested clipping masks, embedded smart objects, and smart-object displacement maps.
