Im a entry level graphic designer. im thinking of purchasing the 'Graphic design - All packages' for an indidviduals @ £49.99 per month. Im still using adobe CS5, so its time for an upgrade, as i start my journey into freelancing.
Ive seen alot of youtube tutorials where people have very high quality mockups of (magazines, shopping bags, caps, books, coffe cups, mobile phone) when presentting their logos/designs on these very items to clients.
My question: Is there an option in photoshop or another adobe software that you use to download these very high quality mockups from creative cloud server, or are people downloading for free/paying for mockups from other webistes? ive recently stumbled across adobe dimension - where people have created their own mockups/scenes. Could this be it?
If you are upgrading to creative cloud, there are templates available. Also search the internet for free templates in the program you wish to use, ie: InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator.
Do a Google search for Photoshop PSD Mockup Templates. There is no shortage.....
Find a design you like, regardless of size, download and open in Photoshop
Increase its size to something that you can still see meaningful content.
Use this as a template to rebuild an element at a time, mabe incorperating your own tweaks to the design.
This is a fun way to practice using Photoshop and learn. Try and use vector tools as much as you can. That means tracing outlines with the Pen Tool, and making the workpath into a Shape layer.
The money you were considering using on the art package would be FAR better spent on a full Creative Cloud subscription. With a full subscription you can learn Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver (website building) and Acrobat, but not all on the same day.
Do the same thing with company logos, but always try to rebuild them as vector objects were possible. Do things that you enjoy because it will help keep you interested.
Feel free to ask detail questions here if you get stuck. There is one user I can think of who pops up here every so often with another question, and his skills have come on leaps and bounds. Questions about how to make this effect or how to do this with Photoshop are our favourites.
Don't waste money better spent elsewhere. Google Images is completely free.
I have no idea what "Graphics Design - All Packages" means. It's not standard language on the Adobe US website.
That said, Adobe offers the following Annual Subscription plans:
If you want to put Photoshop or Illustrator graphics on 3D objects, use Adobe Dimension.
Before you buy, please ensure your computer meets or exceeds the minimum system requirements to run Creative Cloud + OS + all other apps you intend to use. Check each one.
Hope that helps.

In addition to what others have said, Dimension is pretty well gone and has recently been replaced by Adobe Stager.
