Introducing Flat Lay + Styled Desktops at flatlaystudio.com
What are Flat Lay + Styled Desktops?
They are styled stock photography that every blogger, online creative or business savvy entrepreneur can use to beef up their marketing brand or image. These styled photos are great for any blogpost, sidebar widget, or slider graphic that you may need as a graphic accompaniment to your website or promotion campaign.
My style is geared towards minimalist desktop design. I have included a variety of iMac, iPad, iPhone, iPad images (yes, I’m a very HEAVY Apple user which is against the morals of my Android loving husband) with frame mockups, notebooks, chalkboards, vases, candles, pens, and other desktop paraphernalia that the everyday business owner uses.
I will be adding to this collection on an almost daily basis. So if you are a food blogger, a makeup blogger, a fitness blogger, a coaching blogger or any other type that I have missed, please comment below or send an email and I will style one for you. Let the ideas roll in!
Video Tutorial to show you how to apply it
In this video tutorial, I will show you how to use the Adobe Photoshop Smart Object Layer. This feature is extremely handy because all the work is already done for you. All you have to do is just insert the image of your choice, hit save, and voila, your desired image will pop up on the stock photo.
This only works if you have a layered PSD file where the designer has done the work for you and created it utilizing the Smart Objects feature. In my stock photography store (flatlaystudio.com), I am adding this feature to all my tech and photo frame images. This is a great feature not only for simple square layouts, but also eliminates the finagling that you have to do to rotate or skew any images where the tech devices are not square but on an angle.
