Panos FX’s “Books & Brochures” is a bundle with six sets of powerful Photoshop actions that create a bunch of books, brochures, albums and pads, magazines, etc. The actions are easy to use: all you have to do is add your own photographs and text when Photoshop asks you to do so, and let the software do the magic.
Unlike PSD format templates that come in predefined sizes, the actions let you define the preferred page size and therefore avoid losing quality by upsizing or downsizing the final Photoshop image. The actions create 55 different effects, 41 of which are brand new in the latest version. The bundle contains the following sets, plus a detailed PDF guide:
- Spiral Bound Pads & Albums: 10 effects that create wire bound and coil bound pads in many shapes —desktop, single page, two pages, with a metallic spine).
- Softback Books: 15 effects, including six new ones, that creates softback book covers that can be viewed from various angles. Formats include the option to use portrait, landscape, and square pages.
- Hardback Books: Five all new effects hat create hardback book covers that may be viewed from various angles. Formats: portrait pages.
