Scenery for Mac: Quickly Generate Marketing Photos of your App or Website

Launching today, Scenery is a new Mac app that can quickly create professional looking photos of your app or website on a device for marketing purposes. Developed by Unsigned Integer, the makers of Deckset, Scenery essentially allows developers and marketers to skip the expensive and time consuming process of taking their own photos or spending hours in Photoshop.

The Scenery app is free and comes with 3 starter templates (two iPhone 6 templates and one Samsung Galaxy S5 template). Additional template packages can then be purchased from prices ranging from $15 to $100. Each template package has a particular theme such as ‘Around the House’, ‘Wooden Benchtop’ or ‘Flat White Workspace’ and can include various devices such as iPhones, iPads, Macs and Android smartphones. At launch there are 14 template packages available for purchase.

To generate your mockups, you just need to add a screenshot to Scenery by clicking the ‘Place Your Image’ button. Once you’ve loaded a screenshot, Scenery will generate previews of each template with your screenshot and you can save it directly to your Mac. Each image generated is 2000 x 1300px.

Scenery runs natively on your Mac, so it’s lightning-fast, and easy to integrate into your design workflow. The fact that it’s a native app means that we can apply sophisticated image filters and transformations in a snap, creating perfectly realistic results.

Importantly, all images from Scenery’s template packages come with a simple license that allows “unrestricted, unlimited usage - for both web and print”.
