  1. Hi Mark!

    Quick question! When I select the “Front Cover” layer and then go to Select>Load Selection>Front Layer Mask, the first time I did this, the book cover corner stuck out of the template. I eventually got the selection to load where the cover image stayed in the template bounds but there was a gray border/highlight around the edge of the cover image. I couldn’t figure out how to colorize it like the back cover edge. Is this how it is supposed to work?

    Thank you for your help and for this template!

  2. Thanks Mark for all these wonderful mockups! I will use them on my new eBook-Project and on my website.

    1.000.000 karma points to you 🙂


  3. Hi Mark 😀

    Will you ever have any mockups for interior pages? Like one of your sample books opened up to a spread? Would love to have an option to place a typical spread design.

    Love your templates! They make my work so much easier for an admitted PSD dummy like myself!


  4. Thank you so much for the mock-ups! They’re wonderful and easy to use, and am very grateful that you’re so kind enough to share them with the world!

  5. Thanks for the mockup Mark! Super helpful resource for presenting design options to a client.

  6. Thanks Mark
    Thanks so much for this wonderful mockup.
    It is Very kind of you to share these.
    These are very useful for me.
    GOD Bless you.

  7. Thanks so much for the mock up for a children’s book, I used it as part of an on line children’s illustration course I am doing and it was invaluable and easy to use and looks great. I’d be happy to share the image if you’d like it. Would it be possible to share your website details with the group? Thanks again. Amazing stuff.

  8. Hello
    What an absolutely fantastic resource for artists, designers and illustrators. Great layouts and easy to use smart objects make mockups a breeze. As a seasoned Photoshop user but a relatively new author this has saved me a boat load of time in visualising my ideas. I will be recommending your site in my future posts.

    Thank you so much.

  9. Very great! I am so glad I found it. I needed a square mockup and didn’t know how to make it. So with front and back, very nice.
    Thank you su much.

  10. Thank you so much for the mockups, Mark!
    For newbies who might have the same issue, I figured out how to change the color of the edge of the book. Find and select the layer for the edge of the book (toggle eye on/off to figure out the right layer), double click the layer to open the layer style box. Under styles, click on the “color overlay” to reveal the color swatch. Click on the swatch to bring up the color selection options. If you want the color of the edge to be the same as the front of the book, select the eyedropper tool, click the color on the front of the book and the back edge color will change. tada!

  11. Amazing!!!! Thank you so much! I had a 10×10 book cover but was able to figure out how to resize my image to make it work. I shared your link in my author group to help fellow Indie’s like me. Thank you again!
