Designing a great book cover in Photoshop can be as easy as you make it. A great book cover design should be simple yet eye catching in order to really attract attention. In this video I will show you how I made the mockup of an imaginary book.

In order to create the mockup of the book we will use an action that will create the template of our design and then another action that will turn that template into a realistic book. The stock images, fonts and brushes used on this tutorial are only optional. You can use any stock images for your design. If you’rea premium member you can download the stock images and original PSD file used on the tutorial.
