IMG_14052016_230814

MyCatalogue is an added feature in DropMock wherein users can showcase their mocked up images to their customers, would be customers and also to friends and relatives.  The idea is somewhat similar to a printed catalogue that you provide to your customers and they would picked the photos they want. This can be used as well for building an image portfolio or just simply showcasing your photos for personal consumption. Having MyCatalogue can also help you organize your photos that is comparable to an image organizer.

 

What’s good about this new feature is that there is no link whatsoever to DropMock and definitely without any watermark. The URL that will be used will be your own URL so you can claim 100% that the images are entirely your own.

And, with so much competition in the business world, getting your graphic design right is vital for optimal customer engagement. However, producing great graphics can sometimes prove difficult; especially if you’re not an expert in Photoshop or graphic design, and you don’t have the budget to employ a designer.

Online mockup software tools can help you to build an engaging brand or message

Good design enables you to reach your audience in a memorable way. It helps you to get noticed. It helps to build customer engagement and to build your brand. Therefore, it’s important to target your audience in a way that’s not only attractive and functional, but professional too. Your brand should engage and connect on all levels, and communicate your ideas, your message and your products in a relevant and appealing way. However you choose to do this, the ultimate aim is to create a positive impression and avoid misunderstandings. On the other hand, a poorly designed logo, brochure or other marketing tool can have a negative effect and leave them with a poor impression of your company.

One thing’s for sure – there’s no room for mediocre design in today’s fast paced marketing world, and tools such as DropMock can make the whole process so much easier.

Put in its most simple form, a mockup tool is a specially designed tool or app that can be utilised to create a ‘mockup’ of a design, or to evaluate an idea. With our mockup software you have the ability to simply drop your own photos and images into one of our professionally shot scenarios, complete with graphics if required. And, with literally hundreds of scenes to choose from, no matter what kind of business you’re in, there’s sure to be something to suit.

Once produced, it’s then just a simple case of uploading your finished product, allowing you to showcase and promote your brand via your website, social media or a range of other mediums.

One big advantage of using online mockup software is that it frees up your time to concentrate on your business. It does away with the tedious processes normally associated with product design and the manipulation of graphics, and allows you to produce stunning visuals at the touch of a button. It’s a fuss-free way to showcase your products, your website and your business without having to go to the expense of employing  someone to do it for you. And, perhaps most importantly of all, it can save you money by enabling you to see the finished article, thus allowing you to tweak and adjust the design and images, before committing to print or publication.

Behind The Scenes: Early MockUps Photoshoot

DropMock – Early MockUps Photoshoot

Our professional photographers had long been busy creating shotlists even before we start doing this blog. We have always thought of how we could have the best pictures essential for DropMock. Then, we have realized that there is no better way of doing that than considering what people like you need in the business.

Mockup shoot in our studio. If the weather doesn’t favor what needs to be done outside, we resort into doing things under LED’s.

 

Notice that most of the shots we have first considered shooting are somewhat flat lays of devices like iPhone, Macbook Pro, and other computers.

 

Phones and computers have now become man’s essentials. These are now channels of information, communication and most of the time, means of getting things down. And this is so evident in almost all workplace.

Having said that, we have shot these mockups in offices, coffeeshops, and high-end locations to imitate scenarios in corporate ambiance and professional activities.

We understand that there are other means to display your brand. So we have thought of including mugs in the shoot. Likewise they are placed in various visually appealing places.

Check out these samples.

This is a mug we shot in the studio. The photographers used a blue construction paper as a backdrop.

Yes, it takes some time to put the mugs in a very good setup for photo-shoot. See how carefully we have placed a mockup in order under perfect lighting.

We also went outdoors to get some natural lighting. This was shot on a graphite tile just outside a museum.

The goal in this stage is to make sure we have great photos to start working on. These photos are aimed at holding your brand and will go through series of image processing before handed over to the developer.

What Is Drop Mock?

DropMock – What Is DropMock?

Chroma keying or otherwise known as green screening  is nothing new. Photo and video production firms had long perfected the process of compositing two images such that a background of one image is replaced with another picture. This is no different from a news anchor with a dynamic background overlay where headlines and footages play simultaneously in one video stream.

In this age of information where multimedia is favored and a growing demand to its integration in various aspects of the online community is a must, it becomes a pressing matter to make such production accessibly easy and effective in a timely manner.

This is the foothold of DropMock. We have developed a software to eliminate the strenuous effort needed in creating professional statements and advertisement through such process. We are to introduce a seamless process for everyone through an online platform with a straightforward process.

DropMock shall have a vast collection of professionally shot scenarios where a user could choose from and use to pair with their own photos or image.This could be a print on a mug set in a coffee shop ambiance or but not limited to various devices like iPhone showcasing a product in Instagram or any image content uploaded by the user.

Other mockup devices include Laptops, PC’s, iPads, iPhones, mobiles, t-shirts and more. This is a growing library of items from our curating professional photographers and image editors.

As the Online Mockup Scene Creator software comes near to its launch.We are excited to deliver this software to cater to your exceptional marketing experience.
