E-Book Design Logo/Pictures
« on: March 21, 2012, 09:23:24 AM »
Not sure exactly what you would call it, but I've seen some very professional e-Book Pictures/logos like these;



Is there any particular best way to design these? I can do some basic Photoshop stuff but haven't got to this quality. I've also seen one's that look like these;


The latter one's look like they printed them and then took photo's, I can do that also...not sure what is the best for appearance. Maybe just find one like these and add my own graphics? Just wanted to get some opinions...

I know there are photo shop templates out there that allow you to do this as well as programs a quick search showed this one http://ebookcoveractions.com/

Keep searching and someone has put out a free template for photoshop somewhere, they also make them for boxes and cd/dvd cases for movies or games.

I was looking too.  This one is free or you can pay a little for better access.  http://www.myecovermaker.com/
Start with "Start Here" in the center.  You can design something nice ( and upload your own pics) for free.  Seems nice.

There's some photoshop plugins to allow you to do some of this stuff on your own.

I used this guys from Singapore.
http://www.cheapestcovers.com

They will do an entire mini site design including your ebook covers, header, footer, background image, homepage, signup/purchase button, and a couple banner ads.

Really great work at an affordable price.  Excellent for ebooks or membership sites.

I'm late to the game here... sorry ... anyway you can get shit like this on fiverr.com for... wait for it... $5  anyway check the samples before buying... it's best if you have most of the front cover design done and want them to just "3D" it for you
