Photo Studio

A special mode for taking screenshots and recording videos of multiple devices with fancy custom backgrounds, device configs, and zoom levels. It also replaces the default app UI and puts screenshot- and video capture-specific features front and center.

Photo Studio uses Float Mode, which lets you drag and drop devices wherever you want in the workspace.

Screenshotting all devices in default mode takes individual screenshots of each device—this results in a different file for every device. In contrast, taking screenshots in Photo Studio is meant to capture the entire workspace—all the devices and custom background included.

Click the Photo Studio icon (hotkey p) in the app toolbar to access this mode.

Use one of the preloaded images with a custom blur value, or add yours with the ➕ button. Currently, only URLs can be used—no locally stored images.

Other background options

The Black/white Overlay and Shift Color options are common to all background types.

Black/white Overlay

Set a black or white overlay on the background and its intensity. If you don't want an overlay, drag the slider to the extreme left.

Shift Color

If you like the background type or pattern but aren't a fan of the color, you can modify the color values using this slider. Works best with the Gradient and Image background types.
