About the People Tab

As some of you may have noticed, the People category was recently removed from Placeit. The reason why we took down People is because we felt it diluted the Placeit promise.

We are constantly striving to enhance our products, and People was a small experiment as a part of our efforts to create something different and useful for our audience.

Placeit is a mockup tool that helps designers and non-designers create compelling visual assets to promote their work. When it comes to creating these images, Placeit does all the magic, but we work with the user’s input to deliver a quality product in which the user participates by adding his own image. With People, the flow was different. Our users didn’t supply anything, they were simply given a gallery of assets to download, and though these were really good assets, they didn’t involve the client in the process.

As a product, People diluted the promise of the Placeit categories: Digital, Print and Apparel, which is to take a simple user-uploaded image and deliver a professional mockup in seconds and without any additional work from the user. This is why we decided to remove it permanently.

We would like to thank all of you who used the People assets and keep trusting Placeit for creating quality mockups.
