This time I will teach you how to create an e-book cover using Adobe Photoshop. I was looking for free software to create an e-book cover, but did not find any. However, I did find a website which offered a tutorial: http://ebooktemplatesource.com. The site offers an easy tutorial for making an e-book using Adobe Photoshop. The website also provides three e-book templates that are free to download.
Here are the steps to creating your own e-book using Adobe Photoshop:
1.Create your e-book design in the file cover01_blank.psd
2. Once you have your design, press ctrl+shift+E to merge the entire layer in the file cover01_blank.psd. Next, move the file before the file cover01.psd, as shown below. Make sure the upper left and lower left end of the file are in the correct positions, as shown below.
3.Click the cover layer, and then edit>transform>skew (The original tutorial teaches by using edit>transform>distort, but I prefer to use a skew because the result is smoother). Next, drag the point assigned by the red circle to an arrow. Important! To make the skew work properly, drag the point upward, then drag it back to the left.
4. Do the same for the bottom right point (designated with a red circle)
5. If you do it right, then the result is as below.
Now it is your turn to try it! Good luck!
