Book Cover Design Photoshop Tutorial

September 11, 2019

Hi Everyone.. welcome back & let’s get started!! so, in this video I’ll use this work to make a cover book you can see my previous work how to process this work. Okey. create a new Document (Ctrl+N) I’ll use Pixels for the size You can refer to the following settings to make front cover go to Canvas Size (Alt+Ctrl+C) & do the the following. duplicate the layer just drag it to the left I’ll rename it as Cover 1 (for the front) drag & drop the image onto our project. Ctrl+T to resize it. & clip it to layer below (cover 1) duplicate image (Ctrl+J) & clip it to the top layer (cover 2) Ctrl+T to resize it add a Solid Color (black) by 80% opacity I’ll add a new Gradient to the background. Now, add a title text. you can use your favorite font style. I’ll add Drop Shadow to the text. “creating another text” create the name of the Author below I will use some examples of text to text stories on the back cover & create About the Author such as the following I’ll use my photo for the Author. Ctrl+T to resize it. The following is only a sample text only. I’ll add the title text here Ctrl+J to duplicate the Title. Ctrl+T & do the following. and last, place your ISBN number on the back cover just below Ctrl+T to resize it. You can add some nice motives. This is just the basic technique. Thanks, have a nice day ^_^

    With millions of books for readers to choose from, the first “sales
    pitch” is the cover. If it is not striking enough to draw attention, it
    will be passed over for something more interesting on either side.
    was really upset and discouraged when I was getting content for my books
    but lack of readers. I found an agent
    provides me the best covers for my books. Now I write with passion and
    joy because I know I have audience who will be reading. I have been
    using his book cover and mock-up services for sometimes now and he is
    the best so far.

    This is great and very helpful. Thanks. But… Lose the music, talk to the actions and provide a transcript, and it would be even better. But I found it very helpful, nonetheless.
