Pixel Studio FX Review – The ultimate shortcut to professional eCovers, or another out of date pile of crap?
Countless case studies have shown that the right eCover or product packaging can make or break your sales.
But if you have ever tried to create eCovers, Amazon book covers, or just about any type of product packaging, then you will be familiar with the frustrations & costs involved.
From wrestling with complicated (& expensive) design tools that have way more features than you need to grab the job done, to hacking a PLR graphics bundle, creating a cover for your product can be tricky.
Outsourcing is a sensible option if you are busy & do not have the right tools or skills, but it can get costly, particularly if you are creating products on a regular basis.
Outsourcing also brings it is own plethora of issues too. Writing up design briefs. Posting projects on multiple job boards. Choosing, interviewing & hiring the right designer. Back & forth with designers. It is not as “hands-free” as you first hoped.
Which is why there is a big opening in the market for a reliable, easy tool that does nothing but create awesome cover designs.
A tool that does not cost a fortune & try to blow you away with endless features you will never use.
A tool that does 1 job – make awesome eCovers – and does it better, faster & cheaper than doing it yourself or outsourcing to others.
Untilnow, there’ve been a handful of half decent eCover designers on the market. They seem to come & go, and the ones that still exist always seem to create sub-par, outdated designs that look like they have travelled in time from the 90’s.
What is really been missing, is a dedicated eCover design tool that actually makes designs you would be proud to put your name on, & actually put on the “shelf” for sale.
And that is why a brand new tool called Pixel Studio FX caught my eye, & lured me in for a closer look.
Pixel Studio FX is a dedicated eCover design tool that enables you to design pretty much any type of product package at the push of a button, completely customizable to give you a fresh, unique design.
Hundreds of themes. So when you login (yes, Pixel Studio FX is cloud based, not clunky software program you have to down-load & clog your hard drive) you are presented with categories for your cover design on the left hand side. Immediately, you may see the quality design tem-plates under each category & it looks promising, right?
Once you see a template you like, you click on it & select a product style. There seems to be around 250 design templates over 20 categories, which is crazy. You may literally select your exact product type, whether it is a DVD, a report, or a video training package, there is a 3D model for you in here.
Now it is time to make it your own. First, you give the project a title, then you can literally add text, images ,clip art, backgrounds and reposition & resize each element exactly how you want it.
Once you are done, you simply preview your design, and it’ll show you what it’ll look like once you save it. Automatically, it turns your flat design into a 3d cover, based on the template you select earlier. You can even select to add a reflection or shadow too. And there’s also a social share option too, which would be great for running ads or doing a teaser pre-launch for your next book or product!
What I like
• 0 technical hassles.
• Fast & simple.
• Stunning templates.
• Huge range of 3D cover models.
• Ability to save designs.
• Cloud based.
What I do not like
I tried hard to think of something negative about it but I really can not. Perhaps they can add another feature in here that will allow me to export all types of models with one click, which will be cool.
Pixel Studio FX is a fantastic solution for tiny to medium size business owners who need a simple, tech free design tool where 96% of the work & creative elements are already taken care of. If you need a cover fast, there are plenty of templates you can customize & with the push of a button, turn into eye-catching 3D eCover models ready to go.
Pixel-Studio-FX is really a distraction free, get the job done & get it done well type of tool. And with so many templates & 3D models, plus the “barebones” editing options, you may absolutely find a premium cover that is right for you.
A quality product package can make or break your sales, and Pixel-Studio-FX gives everybody the chance to make quality designs, without the professional price tag.
If you want to bypass the hassle of hiring designers, and you can not (or refuse to) purchase big priced pro design tools that look like a pilot’s dashboard & take ages to master, then Pixel-Studio FX is well worth checking out. A great method to save time and money, & make stunning covers at the same time, without compromise.
As I write this update, they also just added a further product to the frontend purchase and Pixel-Studio-FX now comes with “Cash Palette” included.
This includes a “Job Finder” software & training which shows you exactly how to make money on-line by providing design services to others.
The “Job Finder” software program is a real-time saver & automatically finds profitable design jobs online, which you can then fulfil using Pixel-Studio FX. (You can find jobs that pay you up to $700 just for designing a cover!)
This product just got a whole lot better, and it is really great value as you’ve the potential to make a few 100 dollars a day quite easily by fulfilling a few design jobs & the training is very simple to follow.
