The only service similar to Placeit but free is Canva. Mockitup mobile app can be another option but it can’t compete with Placeit in premade library size and quality department.
Let’s see how Canva is similar to Placeit in terms of quality, library size and working process.
Canvas editing experience is similar to Placeit. Choose a premade template, put your design there and voila!
Canva actually has much more editing options then Placeit even in the free subscription and with premium, Canva becomes a beast.
Canva has much more variety of design elements and templates but it doesn’t have a specific focus on mockup templates as Placeit.
But if you’re any good with design or willing to get your hands dirty a little, Canva is the absolute best free alternative to Placeit.
Where Placeit assumes their subscribers don’t know anything about design and they have to put many restrictions on their editing options of the templates to ensure output quality, Canva is the complete opposite.
Anything you can make in Canva, you can edit or animate in any way you would like.
While Canva’s premium subscription can give you many awesome add-ons like AI writing and many more, its free subscription plan is enough to compete with Placeit.
You just need a little bit of design knowledge to completely replace Placeit with Canva’s free subscription.
