Is there anyone out there who has used RealDrawPro to make an eBook cover?
I had a really good one going for me using the template, but the spine in the sample has mysteriously vanished. Naturally there is nothing in Help to help me. I don't know how to get it to show. There's just a white space where the colors and text should be. If I click on it the first time, everything comes up to be edited. But once I've done that, the whole thing disappears. Either it goes back to being white or else the spine vanishes completely--I'm looking at inner layers. Very frustrating.
I went in search of other programs. Came across eBook 3D Wizard. Sounds like a pretty good program, lots of options--which I like very much. Programs with just three views don't do it for me.
Anyone have any experience with this program? They don't offer a trial and the video tutorial they let you look at instead doesn't give you enough info on it as some good old fashioned hands on experience would. It's priced 20 bucks higher now, besides. I know they'll refund if I don't like it, but it's so nice to know beforehand if it's worth your time, money and effort.
Thanks for the tips, dreuby. I downloaded both big brother and little since I love to check out new programs. I'll certainly check out the forums--now that I know they're out there.
I've got someone's tutorial on CompactDraw. Can't remember whose just at the moment. I did a few covers with it. I like how I can choose any image and it conforms to the book's shape. Skewing the text to fit takes a bit of doing for me. I've cheated in the past by cropping as much of the front as I can to get a swatch, take it into Print Shop Pro, design the cover there, and then just skew the swatch back onto the cover. Then I touch it up with the cloning tool in Paint Shop.
I'll go check out the tutorials. If I had the means, I'd have all these programs, There's something to like in each. I'm just a new program geek, I guess.
Hey, btw, I went over to your site last week, admired your logo, saw where you got it and went on to order my own. Gave you as my reference. While I like what they came up with, it wasn't quite what I wanted. I can't decide to just request color changes or go for a little more elegant design.
I'm going to make some transfers of the original for some tee shirts. Very bright--hopefully it'll attact some new attention to my site!
