What program do/can I use to print PS4 covers? Or rather how do I do it? Last time I printed covers (years ago). I used a program that fixed everything and I am not sure how to do it in photoshop, so all and any help will be welcome.

From my experience (customs for all my PS4 games) printing from Photoshop has worked perfectly with correctly sized covers. Just make sure to set your printer to do no scaling.

That sounds. But how do I know if a cover is correctly sized?
Any of the ones in the base dropbox listed in the OP were correctly sized for me, as is the psd template. Even if you found one that wasn't printing properly you could easily resize it (assuming it's not too low res or a messed up ratio) using photoshop and print it the correct size. Dig out a ruler ;).

I've asked this before, but I'll try again.
Does anyone know where I can find the "real" covers for Wolfenstein New Order and Amazing Spider-Man 2 for PS4.
I have both as promos, but I want them to fit into the collection better. I know this might not be the best thread to ask, but it's better than nothing.
I am hoping to get some help or pointed in the right direction at least.

I could do it, but if someone wanted to do it on their own I'd suggest that they do a quick once over the logo with the healing brush, then find a generic sky and cloud formation, mask it over the Game Informer logo, and then just colour correct it to match the rest of the image.

Nah, I haven't been been able to print out and fit any templates. Just been working on getting the 3D one correct.

Simply swapping an XB1 and Blu-Ray cover into the other's box shows they're exactly the same size and vgboxart lists the thin-spinned Blu-Ray size as 3118x1748. So making a template that size with an Xbone logo on the spine is basically guaranteed to work.

Edit: Reddit also has their own XB1 template that many have been using and seems to work.
Unfortunately the Reddit template isn't compatible with my old version of Photoshop, so can I just ask what side and spine resolutions you're using for the Xbox One images?

Right now I've got:

Full Cover -- 3118 x 1748 pixels @ 300ppi
One Side -- 1489 x 1748 pixels @300ppi
Spine -- 142 x 1748 pixels @ 300ppi

I got these from a Blu-Ray template I modified.

Technically Gimp can open PSD files, but I can double check the dimensions for you. You should be fine if you got those from a Blu-Ray template though.
 
I need some help with finding replacement full covers for several 3ds games. I live in canada and the French language box advertisement on the game cases is driving me insane. I am looking for the original North American cover art for:

Fantasy life
Zelda link between worlds
Kirby triple deluxe
Mario & luigi dream team
Tomodachi life
Mario 3d land
Animal crossing

Please let me know if any of you have these images Or a site that does. Thanks!

I'd also like to add Pokemon Omega Ruby to that request list. That damn French thing is so bloody awful to look at even briefly.

Alternatively, is there a template for 3DS cover art?

Right? It's been really bothering me for a long time. Nothing against French language gamers but I don't see why it can't be on the back or a sticker on the plastic. I just realized I also forgot Pokemon x, Mario golf, and Mario tennis

I originally started this one long before the eventual (infamous) announcement of the HD remasters for PS4 and XBO and when that came to pass I admittedly lost some motivation to complete it.

That said I didn't like the idea of a half-finished cover so I completed it tonight to get it out of the way.
That is one of the best covers I've seen!! I hope you make one for PS4 when it releases.

Amazing collection. Are you planning to grab Hyrule Warriors or Smash Bros? I would love to see those covers.
Thanks man :)

Definitely Smash Bros. this Saturday (Pal Land); but there's hardly any usable art which I've found for covers out there unfortunately!

Am I blind? I can't find a template for PS4 covers anywhere in the thread of the OP.

I'm going to create a few more destiny covers since there are surprisingly few.
Here are all the templates I created/modified/customized:

I've been making a bunch of templates with a consistent style for awhile now. I originally had planned for some kind of logical repository for them, but it might be a good idea to get them all in one place. Some of them are heavily based on other people's templates with only slight modifications.

Just for reference, here are the various templates and their sizes. (All at 300 PPI)

I think originally I was going to put them in the Dropbox, but I was really close to running out of space so I sort of axed that idea.

OK, I've finally done it. Completely re-made the rear character panel from scratch. Very happy with it now :) What do you guys think?

You might even say that it's a waste that such a colourful and playful design is stuck on the back cover. I'm really diggin' it.

On another note, that recent swathe of Vita announcements at PSX has pushed me towards creating more Vita covers in the very near future.

Can someone help me out, I picked up Shinobido 2 Revenge of Zen for PS Vita used, but the store actually throws out all the cases and just sells the games.

Does anyone have or know a site that has a scan of the original cover for Shinobido 2? I can't seem to find it anywhere online.

Looks really great! Have to say the back was the thing I didn't like so much about the first version.
Thanks! :D Really happy with how it turned out. Might look at what I can do with Lucina's sword though.

I might play around with the idea of using it on the front. I'll see how it looks after work today.

Hello Guys!


Do you have a Template for PS4 Covers?


Thanks!
From a few posts above:

I've been making a bunch of templates with a consistent style for awhile now. I originally had planned for some kind of logical repository for them, but it might be a good idea to get them all in one place. Some of them are heavily based on other people's templates with only slight modifications.

Anyone have a printable cover for Super Smash Bros Wii U, custom or original?

My cat went to town on my case.
Well, Wolfgang Jr just posted a great one:
