So you’re now a member of Girl Boss Stock – yay, you’re the best 😍 – and you’ve found a mockup you’re dying to use. How can you put your own image in, especially without using a paid program like Photoshop? Let me show you how to do this using a completely free tool – Canva.

Photoshop is awesome – but if you don’t have advanced photo editing needs, you might not need to spend the money on this program. Canva is my go to for this because it’s just so much easier.

If you want to try this out, and snag some free photos to use for your biz, grab these free stock photos below! You’ll get 10 right now and I’ll send more on the first of each month.

Here is the step-by-step with images to walk you through it. There is also a silent video at the end of the post if you want to see it done!

1. Pick your image size.

For this example, I’m going to choice a Social Media design. It’s square and perfect for creating an Instagram photo.

2. Upload your mockup + the image you want to put inside into Canva. Drag your main image to the canvas and position however you want.

3. Select Elements from the side panel and then Grids (top center). Choose the very first grid option – the single grid.



4. Once you click it, it will pop up in the middle of your screen. Drag, resize, and rotate it until it covers your screen area.


5. Drag the image you want in the screen over to the grid you placed. If you hover that image over the grid, it will be placed within – and your mockup is done!

Sidenote: If you want to reposition your photo within the grid, simply double click and you’ll be able to move the image within the confinements of the grid.


There you have it – a free and super simple way to put your image into a mockup. If you’re not a Girl Boss Stock member yet, grab this iPhone mockup – and 9 others – for free below. Plus I’ll send you more free images on the first of each month.
