Create Awesome Screenshots Ideas
Idea 1: Use it for your free opt-in gift in your sidebar just like I did.
- Pick your template and look at the specified sizes
- Create an ebook cover in photoshop or your graphic editor of choice with those dimensions
- Save it
- Now upload it to Placeit
- Right click on image and save as
Idea 2: Use it for a blog post image
Having trouble finding a perfect image for your latest article. Create a simple text image and then just drop it into Placeit. It really adds a unique visual element that stands out from the crowd. Here’s an example of a simple graphic I created for a recent blog post image on my other site Efficient Life Skills.

Here’s another example of a review I did for Pat Flynn’s book Let Go. I used the image for his book and uploaded it to Placeit. Saved it. Then added text around it. Easy.

Idea 3: Use it to showcase your website or app
This is pretty much what this tool was designed for. If you want to show off how your site looks on a mobile device then here you go. If you want a picture that looks like someone about to click something on your site – perfect. Here is an example that I’m using for a Scrivener training course I’m building. I wanted to highlight the fact that you can learn on the go by watching video lessons wherever are so I chose this image which looks like a woman going through my course outside.

Idea 4: Use it in context.
Are you talking about something to do with cell phones or computers or tablets? Then try to get creative and wrap your pictures around the concept too. Here is an example of a post I did about ways you can use your cell phone’s camera to simplify life. What better way than to use someone holding a cell phone as the main picture.
