Are software boxes and ebook covers important?

Review by Ted Peterson

How do you attract internet visitors or customers visiting a retail store towards your products? I guess the right answer is a great packaging design. If you create a beautiful cover design, your possibilities of attracting more users are a lot higher than the case you have a proper cover for your product.The scenario of creating/getting a beautiful design is a lot better than jumping to a bad design in haste, which might cost you all your hard work and serious efforts in promoting your product. A bad design might not succeed in attracting potential customers to give your product a change. They will move on with their search.

Creating a cover design for your products can be a really painful job, especially when you are not sure what layout is the best for you. I looked around for a cheaper solution and I found cover creator software. It can be used to make your own funky design in minutes without any hard work at all.

This software is far better than spending hundreds of dollars on a professional design, and at the end of the day you are still not happy with it. With a cover creator software you can now design a wide variety of covers, like ebook covers, cd covers, dvd covers, software boxes and even covers for magazines.

Using this type of software is pretty easy. The application interface shows you a cool 3D look with great camera focus, where you can rotate and watch the object movement in any direction by a click and move of the mouse. The camera position can be further adjusted using the X, Y, Z axes and the light color effects. Pictures like BMP, GIF, JPEG and even PSD files can be imported and used to enhance the overall look.

One name in particular caught my attention. eCover Engineer from Adolix. It has a smooth GUI, and I learned very fast how to work with it. I like in particular the resizing option, which allows a user to specify length, width, height of the cover he/she intends to design. This way user can create custom boxes, from pizza box cover to dinks box cover. The shadow effect is very good feature and it gave a professional look to my cover design. You can also find out many more samples and templates available free of charge on the product website. All of them can be downloaded and installed very easy.

The application is available in multiple languages like English, German and French giving an extra amount of boost to the internet users around the globe. It uses Microsoft windows Paintbrush as its default picture editor with 14 image filters, 5 border styles and 7 fill styles. If you like to go for advance picture editing and rendering, there is an option where you can select an external picture editor to get extra-high quality images.

I found eCover Engineer to be a cheap way to give my products a professional look. Easy to use, I can build nice looking covers for software boxes, ebooks, CDs or DVDs.
