Don't know how to make a box cover? Well suffer no more. The knowledge is yours. You will need a few things to get started.
- An image program like iPhotoPlus or Photoshop or any other image enhancing program.
- The box cover template. Scan your GTA cover or take this one. (385 kb - BMP format)
- The Rockstar Games logo that is used in the bottom right hand corner of the box cover, scan one or take this one. (7.86 kb - BMP format)
- The ESRB Rating logo. Get them at the link provided or take this one. (2.8 kb - GIF format)
- The GTA logo used on the front of the cover, usually located in the middle. Scan one or take this one. (63 kb - BMP format)
- An IDEA! Without an idea, your box cover will look like crap! Get creative.
Still don't know how to make one? Okay, make sure you are familiar with the following tools in whichever program you have running on your system.
The line tool will allow you to make horizontal and vertical lines. This will make the odd shaped boxes in which you will put images.
The magic wand tool will allow you to select one of those odd shaped boxes and copy it to the file that has the image you want to put in said box. Make sure you move the box so it's not obstructing the view of the particular image. Just move it off to the side but make sure you can still see it.
The move tool will allow you to take the box you just copy and pasted to the desired image and hover it overtop the area you want to put in the template. Copy and paste it to the template.
It really is a matter of trial and error seeing as it can be a little difficult to explain how to do. For now this will have to suffice until I can get more images up to portray what I'm trying to say.
