How to Make 3D Ebook Cover Wtih Photoshop [Tutorial]

September 17, 2019

In this video tutorial I will show you how to create 3D E-book Covers with Photoshop. For the purpose I will use already created layers and Photoshop Auctions scripts. This is my front layer. This is my side layer. Photoshop actions can be found here. I’ll use this one to create the E-book cover. If you haven’t used Photoshop actions before, they are already
created templates whose actions are performed automatically. Now let’s open the template. I will copy the front and side layers into the e-book cover template
and will resize them to fit the borders of the template. We continue with step two – the render. Here you can see all the actions which are performed so we
can get the final result – out 3d e-book cover. Now we just press the play button and wait until all actions are ready. This is our finished 3D e-book cover. You can see the rounded corners, the back cover, the pages
and the cool shadow below the e-book. Let me show you another 3D e-book cover template. I will repeat the steps in the previous example
and will use the same layers to make it easier. As you can see this template is different and have 3 sections –
the spine, the cover and the inside cover. I copy and paste the front layer into the template
and resize it to fit the borders of the sections. It is important your layers to be on the top
so you don’t see any text when rendering. Our work is done and now we just have to render
the template from the Photoshop Actions menu. This template takes a little more time because there
are more actions to be performed but the waiting is worth it. This is my favorite template. As you can see the e-book cover contains all little
details which make it look very professional and cool. You can merge the layers and transform the cover to
change the angel and fit it to your needs if you want. Thank you for watching and expect my next tutorial –

    Every cover I create is with different design. I prefer to create the cover design from scratch. But if you look around, you may find some ready cover templates.

    It took me all day trying to do 3d ebook cover myself and I still couldn't make it good. When I watch your video and how you create the 3d cover in few minutes I feel retarded. Gonna check these scripts. They look promising. Do I get only 3d ebook actions scripts or … ?

    I wish I had found this tutorial earlier. For few years I have purchased 3d ebook covers which worth hundreds of dollars. I could save a lot of money.

    Interesting tutorial. I have tried doing a 3d cover some time ago for my site and it didn't looked good so I purchased it for $60. The work they delivered looked exactly as yours(except the design).

    Very good tutorial. I just wish you had added a few cover templates. Can you do that, please?

  • Reply Lee Davis October 2, 2013 at 8:23 am

    I will create few templates which you can use to create covers in few days.

  • Reply Lee Davis October 2, 2013 at 8:26 am

    With these action scripts you can save a lot of time. It takes around 3-4 minutes to create the 3D e-book. And you get not only 3D e-book scripts. You will receive actions scripts for 3D magazine covers, software boxes, membership cards, notebooks and many more. Check the website in description to view the full package of actions scripts.

    after creating the book using this method how do i then just rip the book from the white background??

  • Reply Lee Davis October 22, 2013 at 4:46 pm

    You need to remove the layer with the white background. Usually it is on the bottom. Scroll down until you find the layer in question and delete it. After doing that you should have transparent background.
