How To Create A Newspaper Mockup?

Do you want to create a realistic newspaper design presentation but don’t know where to start?

That’s OK!

I’m here to share a quick step-by-step guide, so everyone can make it happen regardless of your skill level.

While I usually find using a mockup generator the fastest way, I couldn’t find any for newspapers, so we’ll use a PSD template.

4 Easy Steps To Make A Newspaper Mockup:

  1. Step 1: Open Photoshop and import your mockup.
  2. Step 2: Then find the convenient smart object layer and use it to drag and drop your design.
  3. Step 3: You can perform all the other customization tweaks at this stage. I made sure to include PSDs with a great layered structure, so you’ll find everything easily.
  4. Step 4: Save and download, and you’re done.

Yup, it really is as simple as it sounds.

The process can take seconds, but it depends on how long you’ll spend finishing “step 3.”
