Genius, brilliant, fabulous tool

Anyone with Photoshop and basic Photoshop skills is in luck today, as PSDCovers offers free actions to turn any 2D image into a 3D product shot. So let’s say you want to create an image for your website or print marketing that shows your company information on a book or DVD, or maybe something more advanced like a cup or coffee mug – it would take a tremendous amount of skill and Photoshop magic to do just that.

Instead of creating a badly rendered copy and paste job, with PSDCovers, you simply locate your desired action by searching for something like “DVD” or “can,” download, decompress, and install. Create a template, add your 2D design, position and scale, then set the actions in motion.

They create the product shot, you add the 2D image, and in seconds, you’ve got a winning marketing tool!

how PSDcovers works

Summarized by MCPactions.com, Photoshop actions are a series of recorded steps by the designer to help a Photoshop user to achieve a look without having to manually apply each process. They are shortcuts designed to avoid having to do extensive manual alterations to a design.

This tool is not meant for those new to Photoshop, as it requires intermediate knowledge of Photoshop, but for anyone who has access to a graphic designer (and with the internet, all of you do), this is a tremendous tool for amping up any marketing, be it digital or traditional.

As a bonus, the company offers endless resources on their blog from mockups of devices to common vector logos, and even royalty free textures.
