The service already has multiple themes (like a hand holding the device or the device placed on a desk) and it has shots for iPhones, iPads and Macs.


Screenshots can be uploaded with drag ‘n’ drops or mentioning the URL and the output will be rendered instantly.

New themes are added within time and, if you have similar themes, you can send them to the Breezi team and they may add it as well.
