Having cut my teeth on Photoshop v1.0, I have long been a user of Photoshop. However, it wasn’t until CS4 that I started creating Actions. In fact, I knew very little about Actions as they never came up as a viable solution to any workflow I’ve had to accomplish in my many years with this […]


Creating mockups can be a very time consuming process that separates you from concentrating exclusively on your designs. At PSDCovers we offer mock-up templates in the form of Photoshop Actions that can render your designs as glossy faux-3D renderings for showcasing your work in marketing presentations, school projects, portfolios and even print mediums.


Here is another great PSD Mockup for a popular Samsung Android Smartphone released in 2012, the Samsung Galaxy S III. This PSD Mockup Android template was created by Eryk Pastwa and has a light and dark version of the same Samsung Galaxy S II model. The resolution of the Android screen is 720×1280 and was […]


I get a lot of requests for Android smartphone Actions, unfortunately the models from Samsung, HTC, LG, Motorola and others vary greatly and change too often to be relevant for any period of time. As much as possible the goal for PSDCovers is to create PSD mockups that are as generic in nature as possible […]


Back in 2011 I registered psdcovers.com to begin a new hobby, a hobby which I would use to learn more about servers, content creation, CDNs, cache, SEO, social networking etc. But it’s more than a hobby, it’s a type of PSD portfolio which I use to showcase a single talent — product photography converted into […]


PSD Mockup Designs Boost Your Productivity For most designers, the effort of creating great work comes in the form of working in 2D for hours or days within Photoshop. Brand designs for beverage cans, books, cereal, brochures and even software are painstakingly crafted with excruciating detail. And when the 2D design is done the effort […]


Our iPhone 5 Cover Actions are a faithful recreation of Apple’s newest Retina display iPhone. These Action will render your 2D artwork, UI/UX workflow designs or wireframes onto a hi-resolution 300DPI glossy 3D product shot that you can freely place into your website, office presentation or marketing campaign.


Creating a Cover Action product is a time consuming process, however, I enjoy it because it keeps the brain occupied. This site doesn’t currently have an in-depth tutorial on how to create a Cover Action but I did recently author a post on psd.tutsplus.com that should be out around the time your read this. In […]


I’m sounding like a dead horse at this point, but I discovered quite recently that Wikipedia is an incredible treasure trove of vector graphics. In the last few posts I’ve made a point of that fact by listing off where to find MLB, NFL and NHL team logos, now this post is about the NBA.


Wikipedia.org has a huge collection of sports team logos in vector format. There are many sites which offer these exact same vector logos for a price, however I’m not certain they are legit so if you need to use a vectorized logo of any sports team or brand then maybe you can save a few […]
