Graphic Design Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional graphic designers and non-designers trying to do their own graphic design. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I see so many people presenting their designs/portfolio on device screens, like a macbook pro or imac or even iphone. I'm also seeing program developers and others do so who I presume aren't specifically talented in graphic design, so I was wondering if anyone knows of a website/template people are using? I'm sure it wouldn't be that difficult to do from scratch, but if such a template exists it would be helpful.

I'm confused by the question...you want to design your portfolio web site so that your work appears on a fake screen in the web browser? I guess you could do that with any image of the device you want to show...though I don't know if I see the point to it all. –  DA01 Apr 9 '12 at 2:42

These are simply multiple images combined in a raster editing application such as Photoshop.

You simply place an image of your web site or app, or whatever on a layer above a photo of the computer, then save the entire thing as one, single image.

There's no super-secret dynamic web code which does this. It's merely saving images so they look like they are on a screen.

If you are proficient enough with CSS you could use a background image for the computer, then have additional image overlay the computer in the HTML/CSS. But generally it's just single images.
