How to Use Leggings Mock-Up Vol.3 2017 to Showcase Your Designs
If you are looking for a realistic and easy way to present your leggings designs, you might want to check out Leggings Mock-Up Vol.3 2017 by Freeman Studio. This product is a collection of 15 high-quality Photoshop templates that allow you to place your artwork on leggings using smart objects. You can also change the color of the leggings and adjust the displacement maps for a more natural look.
In this article, we will show you how to use Leggings Mock-Up Vol.3 2017 to showcase your designs in a few simple steps.
Step 1: Download and unzip the product
First, you need to purchase and download Leggings Mock-Up Vol.3 2017 from Creative Market, Dribbble, or GraphicRiver. The product comes in a zip file that contains 15 PSD files, a help file, and a license file. You need to unzip the file to access the contents.
Step 2: Open a PSD file in Photoshop
Next, you need to open one of the PSD files in Photoshop. Each file corresponds to a different leggings mock-up with a different pose and perspective. You can choose the one that suits your design best.
For example, we will use the file \"Leggings_Mockup_01.psd\" for this tutorial.
Step 3: Double-click the smart object layer
Once you open the PSD file, you will see several layers in the Layers panel. The layer named \"Your Design\" is a smart object layer that contains your artwork. To edit it, you need to double-click on it.
A new window will open with a blank canvas. This is where you can paste or create your design.
Step 4: Paste or create your design
Now you can paste or create your design on the canvas. Make sure it covers the whole area and matches the shape of the leggings. You can use guides, grids, or rulers to help you align your design.
For example, we will paste a floral pattern on the canvas.
Step 5: Save and close the smart object window
When you are happy with your design, you need to save and close the smart object window. To do that, go to File > Save and then File > Close or use the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+S and Ctrl+W (or Command+S and Command+W on Mac).
This will update the smart object layer in the main PSD file with your design.
Step 6: Change the color of the leggings (optional)
If you want to change the color of the leggings, you can do that by adjusting the hue/saturation layer above the smart object layer. To do that, double-click on the layer thumbnail and use the sliders to change the hue, saturation, and lightness of the leggings.
For example, we will change the color of the leggings to purple.
Step 7: Adjust the displacement maps (optional)
If you want to make your design look more realistic and follow the contours of the leggings, you can do that by adjusting the displacement maps layers below the smart object layer. To do that, double-click on each layer thumbnail and change the horizontal and vertical scale values.
The higher the values, the more distorted your design will be. The lower the values, the less distorted your design will be. You can experiment with different values until you find the ones that work best for your design.
For example, we will change the values to 5 for both horizontal and vertical scale. aa16f39245
