Create eBook Covers, Software Boxes & CD/DVD Covers without Photoshop

You've carefully crafted your latest ebook, software program, cd or dvd. It's given you sleepless nights, long bone-aching days and you're proud of your latest acomplishment.

The content's fantastic, but the presentation sucks!

You've worked hard on the graphics, but it looks kind of shabby in two dimensions. Of course it'd look if you'd got hundreds of dollars to splash out on photoshop, but it's just not in your budget.

You turn to Google and search for a free alternative - try it, you won't have much luck.

However, there is a free, online alternative that'll turn your flat graphics into nice three dimensional covers with those all important reflecting effects.

It's not the prettiest website in the world, but it's clean and clear interface makes up it's lack of charisma.

Choose the type of graphic cover you're after, upload your 2d images as indicated and Create.

Here's a quick mock up of covers for one of my recent projects...

Once you're happy with your cover, use your mouse to drag and rotate the image into any position you want.

....And Download as a .png, .jpg or .gif.
