Vista style box tutorial

To install the actionscript you’ve just downloaded, simply unzip the folder and drag and drop it onto the photoshop workspace. There’s a more detailed explanation in this ebook cover software screencast.

Or, if you’re a mac user – simply follow these instructions…

1. Unzip the eCoverSuiteElite folder.
2. Open up Photoshop
3. From the top photoshop menu bar, choose ‘Window’ >> ‘Actions’
(This should bring up the actions panel)
4. Now, simply click on the small arrow with parallel lines next
to it – to the right of the panel
(This should open a drop-down menu)
5. From this menu choose ‘load actions’
6. You should now be able to select which eCoverSuiteElite
actions to load.

Once the photoshop action has been installed, click on step 1 and press play. This’ll give you the template that you can work off.

For this tutorial though, I’m going to use a vista wallpaper. You can find it here.

Now it’s time to position your image onto the actionscript template. Simply click on the photoshop ‘File’ menu & then choose ‘place…’ – this will allow you to place your image on top of the template.

All that’s left to do now is press step 2 on the actionscript panel, & let eCoverSuiteElite’s vista box action convert your 2D image into 3D.
