THE PROBLEM WITH EBOOK COVER SOFTWARE
eBook cover software that I have seen in the past, the graphics that they generate were never up to par. Though claiming to use a 3D rendering engine, graphics created by ebook cover software are always very flat in color, very poor in lighting effects, and also very rough around the edges.
Your product graphic deosn’t look real at all. So you never really get to have that nice, photo-realistic ebook cover graphic.
I can name a few names, but I think you can easily do a few Google search and find them.
That is why I have always used Photoshop for my ebook covers. With Photoshop, you can apply filters, styles, effects and you will have a nicer, more real looking ebook covers.
AN EBOOK COVER SOFTWARE AS GOOD AS PHOTOHOP?
But in the past two weeks, I have been checking out another ebook cover software. I make it appoint to check the sample output graphics before I check out the software more thoroughly. What I saw surprised me. It is nothing like what I have seen from any other ebook cover software.
My first thought was, “No way! They must have use Photoshop, GIMP and Paintshop Pro for this.”
But that was just my thought. I still don’t know the truth. So I thought I’d check it out. I downloaded the trial version and tried it out. And what do you know, they do generate nicer ebook cover graphics. I am so happy with their e-covers that I upgraded from a trial version to a full version.
And the software is called Box Shot 3D.
