#1 Regular Instagram Post Mockups
The default option is for making a mockup of the most regular Instagram post as it appears in the user news feed.
You can toggle between the mobile and desktop view to see how it would appear on different devices.
To customize the mockup, simply click on anywhere on the post itself and directly edit the text.
Click on the image to upload your own picture.
It’s the easiest way to instantly generate a 100% realistic preview of an Instagram post – perfect for showing to clients, as they wish to see how a potential post or ad would really look like.
#2 Sponsored Instagram Post Ad Mockups
A sponsored Instagram post is in essence actually the same as a regular post, the only difference is, that there is also a Call to Action button.
To enable this feature, click on the sidebar toggle “CTA Button” and “Show CTA on post”.
This will add an extra CTA line just beneath the post itself which consists of 2 elements: the CTA text and small arrow.
Instagram has made this intentionally very small and barely noticeable, so people would not notice, that it’s actually an Advertisement.
Just click on the CTA text and you’ll have all the choices Instagram offers for the CTA text.
No custom text is available there, as Instagram does not allow it.
#3 Instagram Story Mockups
To visualize your Instagram story, click on the sidebar options menu and choose “Story” from the menu.
Your image is automatically fitted into the Instagram story dimensions 9:16 ratio.
Naturally you can also upload video, but this is not auto cropped like image, but fitted into the center (if the ratio does not match).
#4 Instagram Carousel Ad Mockups
There are 2 ways to make Instagram carousel ad mockups:
- Making all the slides visible at once – this is perfect for creating a general overview of all the carousel slides.
- Showing how it would naturally appear on Instagram with just 1 slide visible.
This setting can easily be toggled from the sidebar menu.
To add more images into the carousel, click on the “+ Add Image” button right next to the main image.
Use the “Show all carousel images” toggle in the sidebar to switch between showing all of the slides or just the main image.
#5 Instagram Profile Mockups
As a social media marketer, the very first thing you probably start with your client, is pimping the Instagram profile page – to make it look nice and also practical.

This tool is perfect for visualizing and planning, what’s the best solution for a specific Instagram profile.
Click on the texts and test a winning copy.
You can also enable the highlights from the sidebar menu and preview how a set of new icons would enhance the profile further.
#6 Video Mockups for Instagram – Download as MP4
Video is the absolutely new content king on Instagram, as the platform tries all its best to mimic TikTok.
That’s why it’s also important to make video ads and see how they would appear inside the app.
To create a video Instagram mockup, simply upload your clip into any of the post styles and formats and download the final result as an MP4 file.
The video output is trimmed to 30 seconds.
