Depending on where you plan to use your mockup files, you may need to resize the files to get them ready.

The simple way to do that would be to take a mockup image from the marketplace you’re planning on selling your products. Take something that is selling good.

Then take that image to photoshop and press “Ctrl+R” to activate the rulers. Then take measurements like this.

And then make your mockup template the same size and use the rulers as reference like this with “Ctrl+t“.


Some cropping is inevitable but usually the output still looks good.

Prepare Folders For Bulk Mockup

If you check the Bulk Mockup interface, you can see you need three folders to make it work.

  1. First, put all the PSD templates you want to use in one single folder.
  2. Second, make an empty folder for where all the finished design files will be created.

After creation and preparation of all these three folders are done, now just browse and choose them from your computer.

Lastly, click the “Run Bulk Mockup” button.
