    The description says its 8.5 by 11 but it’s actually 11×17.

    It’s 8.5×11. Here’s why you may think otherwise…

    When I take a product shot the image is at a resolution of whatever camera I am using. It can be 10 megapixel or 15 megapixel. Another factor is how close the camera is or if I’m using the zoom lens.

    All these conspire to make every shot slightly different which means I have to compensate for those errors by implementing my own correction method.

    And here is what I do:

    As I prepare to make every Action I take detailed measurements of each product (I include the basic measurements in metric on each post).

    I treat every millimetre as if it was a *pixel*, I then multiply each metric measurement by 24 to ensure that the final number is well above an HD resolution.

    For example, if something is 100mm then multiplying that by 24 gives me 2400 pixels (millimetre x 24 = new dimension in pixels).

    This custom form of correction allows all the Actions to end up at an HD resolution AT THE SAME SCALE. Render the CAN001 Action and composite it with the CARTON001 Action and you’ll see they share the same scale — that’s why I encourage designers to render what they need and create their own compositions. Everything fits together (except for the Apple products which are rendered relative to their screen resolution).

    What you are seeing is my custom method of applying a consistent measurement method to all the products to ensure they are HD ready.

    8.5×11 shares the same aspect ratio as 11×17 so it’s possible that the Action gives you the impression it measures 11×17 and not 8.5×11 — but rest assured, if I do make an 11×17 it will be MUCH larger than PAMPHLET007.

    What I meant was the “pages” in these brochure mockups are two side-by-side 11×17 pages, I don’t mean the whole mockup image size. I’m creating a mockup of a 8.5×11 brochure and the aspects ratio of 8.5×11 is not the same as 11×17, so I have to skew the images a bit, although it still ends up looking great. I was just letting people know because it says “This is a standard A (8.5×11) pamphlet.” I get why it says that though, because a folded 8.5×11 sheet produces the same aspect ratios as two 11×17′s, but I’m looking at the size of the artwork that goes on an individual “page”. Hope that makes sense. Thanks for the great psd action.

  • psdcovers

    Yes, the template resolution matches the final render. So if your original artwork is literally 8.5×11 then you’ll need to scale it up to fit the template.

    The “pages” may look like 2 free-standing 11×17 pages but what you are in fact looking at is a huge 8.5×11 (aspect ratio) in landscape mode.

    None of my templates take 1:1 designs as input. Either the design is made to fit the template or it has to be scaled up to fit.

  • Lucas Edward Johnson

    The generated template is literally 22×17″ at 300dpi, I’m looking at it right now. That creates two 11×17 pages, which is why my first comment is that it’s “actually 11×17″, because I was referring the pages. As you are describing, it’s scaled up, so 11×17 is the same as 5.5 wide x 8.5 tall (half of 11×17), because it’s a folded 8.5×11, which is why you describe it as a huge 8.5×11 pamphlet. Hence the confusion.

  • psdcovers

    Pure coincidence. I completely missed that the measurements happened to line up so perfectly.

  • Anubhav

    Thank you so much!! My designs look so much better like this! Keep up the good work!

  • Gabrielle

    I don’t seem to be able to open the PSD Action File with the CS6 version. Is that normal? help anyone?

  • psdcovers

    Hi Gabrielle, there are no PSDs in the download file. What you downloaded was a Photoshop Action Script. When you run this script inside Photoshop it will CREATE the PSD template.

    If you spend 10 mins on this tutorial you will be ready to go:

    Why am I so confused here. I am creating a 11×17 document that is a bi-fold. This seems to be the closest template but the sizing is off. Is the a standard 11×17 to 8.5×11 bi-fold that I am missing? Thanks!

  • Matt

    Also looking for a 8.5×22 bi-fold template. Do either of these exist? Seems these are more stand sizes? Can I crop after the fist action is complete? This is such an awesome tool so thanks for your efforts!

  • Matt

    Would I possibly be able to commission the above two templates needed? I would use them quite often. Please let me know or email me at info@hylandgraphics.com. Thanks!

    Hi Matt, sorry for the delay in my reply…

    I don’t do custom work as I’m completely swamped with *life* — mostly my new startup takes all my time.

    The content I post on this site is based on the requests I get, so if I get lots of requests for flyers I do flyers (and I do). Lately I’ve been getting lots of requests for greeting cards, books and CD jewel cases so those are at the top of my list.

    Unfortunately these items come in various dimensions adhering to US or Euro standards, bindings are glued or stapled, folder vertically or horizontally etc. In short, too many variables so I do my best to create generic Actions that serve the widest audience possible, nothing custom.

    Sincerely,
    Simon

    Thanks for the reply Simon,

    So are there no 11×17 bi-folds or am I missing them? Thanks!

    Sorry, nothing yet.
