Watch this short video and read the steps below to learn how to use the design template. It's simple!
Step 1: Download and open the design template in Photoshop
Step 2: Drag and drop your design into Photoshop. The design auto fits within the canvas of the template. Press Enter to place the file.
Step 3: In the layer window, hide the top layer. The center line acts as the spine of the notebook
Step 4: Resize and push the design to fill the front portion (right side) of the notebook. To resize and move the image, select the design layer and go to Edit > Transform > Scale. Using the mouse and holding down Shift + Alt buttons, drag the outer edge of the design to resize it. Use the mouse to drag the design or the arrow keys to move the design. Holding the Shift + Alt buttons makes sure the design is resized proportionately. Press Enter to confirm the transformation.
Step 5: In case, you do not have a specific design for the back portion of the book, you can create a mirrored copy of the front design. Select the design layer and go to Layer > Duplicate Layer > OK. Follow the same steps as denoted in Step 4 for the back design and fit it on the left side of the design template.
Step 6: Go to File > Save As and save the design in JPEG format.
