There are hundreds of templates for you to choose from, with lots of different types of people (so you can pick your target audience out), and there’s lots of different devices to choose from too.
How it works
You can either upload a photo that is saved on your phone, take a new photo, or just type in the URL of your website and the app will get a screenshot for you! How cool is that!? Also, if you choose one of their mobile templates, it will even get the mobile optimised version of your website:
And it is FREE
Yes for FREE you can use a small version of the image (like the ones above) in a unedited format, but for only $8 you can buy a Standard Commercial Licence that gives you a full sized image that you can edit as you like.
