Hero header images containing various office peripherals and everyday objects are becoming increasingly popular, particularly for design agencies and portfolio websites.
Following this trend can be time-consuming and requires some pretty swish photography equipment, but there are some shortcuts in the form of PSD mockup templates.

Free Hero Image Mockup Templates
Everybody loves freebies! These mockup templates are all available for free, but the selection is pretty limited.

Amazing templates you have shared for web designing. Designing is the best thing in any web development work.
Some really great hero images. Its definitely saved me some time. Thanks for sharing them
No problem, Robert.
Saving time is always great!

Again a very nice post, I like Free Creativity Bundle, it’s really awesome but other all are also good.
Awesome, that’s exactly what I was looking for a website project!
I’m thrilled I’ve help you find what you were looking for.
Another way to do this is to find an image gallery that supports HTML 5 / CSS 3 which allows you to dynamically place items on the image. Almost like you’re moving items on the image. It’s a very nice effect.
Thanks for the tip, Sam!
Very useful post.thnx a lot line25
Thanks for sharing great post.
Thank you, I’m really happy you like the post!
Flat MockUps are so amazing
I think so too! Thanks for the comment.
As usual very nice art work and my favorite is workstation mockup.
That one is a fantastic one. Thanks for your comment, Cathy!
the first design is so good
Thanks for your comment. :D
Some really nice hero images there Chris. I’m more of a fan of designing your own, but if you haven’t got the time or equipment this is a great alternative way.
It’s definitely a time saver!
Yes, I designed my own hero image that truly reflects who I am as a creative and the tools I use.
It took about a couple of hours to set everything up and get it all straight and then to be able to shoot without a high-end studio setup so it looks half-decent.
Don’t want to just to post a link to the image here as it’s naked self promotion but if anybody is interested in having a look please email me – unless Chris wants me to post it here of course.
