How to Create eCovers Without Hiring a Designer

I recently found a fantastic stock photo and design resource at GraphicRiver.net. I purchase the Smart 3D Package Box for only USD $3.00! I deposited USD $20.00 into my account and bought some other marketing graphics from GraphicRiver.net too.

Here’s a small preview of the wonderful eCover templates you can find on GraphicRiver.net…

  • Product Mock-Ups: Book covers, business cards, software box covers, DVD cases and more.
  • 3D Boxes: 3D box covers you can use for your software or info-products.
  • eBook Covers: eBook covers Photoshop actions/templates and eBook cover designs.
  • CD Cases: Cool CD cases for your CD products.
  • DVD Cases: Cool DVD cases for your DVD products.

If I knew about GraphicRiver.net earlier, I would have saved a lot of time and money by creating my own eCovers in Photoshops with these templates. You could simply purchase the covers you need for a couple of dollars instead of buying a Photoshop action package for $47, $67 or $97 and up.

What’s the Catch?

The only catch is you need to have Adobe Photoshop and some basic knowledge of using the software. You need to get Adobe Photoshop CS3 and above for some of these templates to work. Some of these templates use Photoshop actions and you should be able to use them with Adobe Photoshop CS2 and below. However, some of these templates use “Smart Objects” that are only supported with Adobe Photoshop CS3/CS4 and above.

My favourite box generator, Smart 3D Package Box, runs on Adobe Photoshop CS4 and above. I had problems getting it to work on my Adobe Photoshop CS2! I downloaded a trial version of Adobe Photoshop CS5 and it worked perfectly.

My Product Boxes

I created my product boxes with the Smart 3D Package Box. I still can’t believe I paid only USD $3.00 for it. Once I created a template for my product boxes, it was easy generating boxes with a consistent look and feel for all my product images.

My eBook Covers

I created my eBook covers with the Design E Book Cover in Seconds Photoshop template. I also paid a measely USD $3.00 for this template. I’m very satisfied with the covers I made for my products and I hope you find a template on GraphicRiver.net that suits your needs.
