What does it do?
This little software program makes 3-D pictures out of
anything! If you can get a picture of something, anything, it will turn
it into a box, a book or even a bound report.
Don't underestimate the power of visual marketing.
Everyone knows that they are buying an ebook as a downloadable pdf file,
but there is a sense of value that comes with seeing that ebook look
like a "real" book. Face it. People are spending a lot of money on your
ebooks, tutorials and audios. They want to feel like they are purchasing
a professional product and a quality 3-D graphic goes a long way to
convincing them that your products are worth the price - that they have
Things I Like:
program is simple to use and even comes with pre-made templates if that
is your cup of tea. I prefer to make my own covers in Macromedia
Fireworks and then import them into eCover Generator to make 3-D
software boxes and books.
This program allows you to make the cover, the spine and
then at what angle the "book" will sit. It even allows you to determine
the length and angle of a drop shadow - now that looks really cool!
here to see an example of a cover I made with eCover Generator.
Things I Would Change:
You really need to know what size
you want before you start. If you start enlarging or shrinking the
finished JPEG, it will scrunch the letters and look unprofessional.
Also, you will have to experiment to
see how wide the spine should be to look like a real book instead of a
box with pages. What I am saying is, be prepared to spend some time to
get used to the funny quirks of eCover Generator. It is certainly not as
robust as an expensive drawing program like Corel Draw, but then again,
it is not designed to be.
This software program is designed to
be a quick, easy way to take any JPEG or GIF file and turn it into a 3-D
book or box. To that end it does a pretty good job.
Again, your sales will increase if
you add value by projecting a professional image with your downloadable
products. And you will not have to pay a graphic designer $300 or more
for a 3-D image.
Buy this product and you can even
start your own affordable ebook cover design business!
