What are Mockups?
A mockup is a realistic representation of what the product will look like. It could be almost everything we use daily. It could be an iPhone, iPad, Macbook, Apple watch or other smartphones or tablets. The mockup is a scale or full-size model of a design or device, used for teaching, demonstration, design evaluation or promotions. On the internet, you can find two different names - mockup and mock-up, but it’s the same product.
In other hand, we can said that a mockup is a prototype and it provides at least part of the functionality of a system and enables testing of a design. Mockups are used by many companies and designers to acquire better feedback from users. They are not even creating a better picture of your app or websites, but it also helps to your customer to image the product he’s going to use easily.

And the last question is how to use it? It’s very simple! Just download the mockup and open it on your photoshop tool. After in the layers you will see “Click to edit screen” layer and just click it on it.
You will be moved to another page where you will be inserting your picture. After that, just copy and paste on the main mockup. You can find great tutorials on Youtube how to doing that, like this one - How to Insert Your Art into a Mockup Template with Smart Objects.
