Robin Good's curator insight, January 13, 2014 11:16 AM



Placeit is a great web app which makes it extremely easy to create professional high-quality photo-shots of your product, service or web app inserted within pre-designed environments. 


There are already over 550 ready-made setups/environments in which you can integrate any image you upload or reference by URL.


The images you provide are perfectly integrated into the ready-made shots taking into considerations also perspective and angle of the placement. 


Most ready-made environments are based on photographs of smartphones or tablets within different locations.


Finaly composited images can be download for free at a resolution of up to 640x480.


Higher resolutions images are charged according to various monthly plans or by image. 


Pricing info: 


My comment: Great app. Very useful and simple to use. Placeit photo templates and technology makes it super-easy for anyone to create great product shots in seconds and at a fraction of it would cost to creat them in traditional ways. Five stars.
