Say bye to Favorite mockups and hello to User collections - a new concept to help you group mockups into collections in Smartmockups.

There are over 7,000+ mockups available on Smartmockups. The number regularly increases as we release new mockups. Which is great because you have tons of different mockups to choose from. However, the time needed to search through every mockup category to find the mockup you need also goes up. To help you save time, we designed User collections. This feature allows you to group mockups into collections according to your needs and to save them for the future.

1. User collections

You may have heard of the Favorite mockups feature before - the possibility to mark your mockups as favorites. Based on user feedback, we decided to create a new and better way for users to group mockups together so that their content stays organized, is in one place and can be easily found again for later use. We believe User collections will make your Smartmockups experience even more delightful.

There’s probably a time when you’re working on multiple design projects at once. Organizing your design assets accordingly is key to helping you stay on top of your game and meet deadlines. With User collections, you can create collections, name them based on the project you are working on, and group the desired mockups into these collections. This will help you determine which mockups you want to use for which projects.

2. How to create a collection in Smartmockups

All Smartmockups users with a registered account can enjoy User collections.

To get started, log in to your Smartmockups account and choose a mockup category you want to search.

Hover over mockups in the mockup library and click the + collect icon. In the panel with collection settings, click create new collection to name your new collection. Once named, hit the create a collection button.

3. How to add mockups to a collection

Adding new mockups to your collection is very simple and follows the same steps you learnt in the previous paragraph.

While you are searching through the mockup library, hover over the mockup and click the + collect icon. From the collections tab, simply choose the collection you want to add your mockup to and click it. A checkmark with blue overlay indicates you have added the mockup to the collection.

4. Where to find your collections

All of the collections you create are stored in Smartmockups, ready whenever you are. You don't have to worry about losing them.

To access them, click on the avatar of your account in the upper right-hand corner and choose "My collections" from the dropdown menu.

This is where you’re going to see all your previously made collections. You can also create new ones from here.

Rename collections

Collections that you create can be named, renamed or deleted at any time. To rename your collection, go to the My collections tab in Smartmockups and click the collection you wish to rename.

In the right-hand side of the tab, you’re going to see the Rename button which will allow you to rename your collection. Type in the new name of the collection and confirm the change.

Delete collections

In the same way, you can delete your collection when you no longer need it. In the My collections tab, click the collection you want to delete. In the right-hand side of the tab, you’re going to see a red trash icon. Click it and you’ll be asked to confirm the delete process. Watch out: once the collection is deleted it can't be restored.
