Sometimes when opening mockups for the first time Photoshop needs to be reminded where the displacement map files are. Follow these 3 steps to update the location. Be sure to save your work :).

 

Step 1: Select the Displacement Effect

Double click the “Displace” effect. It’s located inside Effects > Design > Displace.
