From 2D to 3D_Ebook_Cover with PowerPoint

How To Create a 3D Ebook Cover with PowerPoint:


It’s very easy to create a 3D Ebook Cover with PowerPoint.
You can do it with only a few clicks.

First off, you need a 2D Ebook Cover in PNG or JPG format.
I made my one with, which is a fabulous free online tool, but you can also make one with PowerPoint. It’s easier and faster with Canva.

Here’s my 2D cover:


Open PowerPoint, open a new File.

Click Insert – Picture – select the saved file of the 2D Ebook Cover. Now you see it on the screen.

Left Mouse click on the image, right Mouse click, click on Format Picture.


Now you click on 3-D Rotation – Presets as shown in the image below.


You can choose from a lot of different perspectives. In this example, I chose the one in the image below under “Perspective” – click on it.


Click on 3-D Format – Depth: 20 PT – Now you already see the 3D effect of the book, right?
Isn’t it amazing?


Next step:
Contour – Color: Grey– Size: 0,5 PT



Lighting: you can leave it as it is:

Note: try to change the lighting and the material as well in order to see the possibilities. I did not change them.

And after making some changes, click on „Automatic“ of the Color Depth to make sure that the book spine has the same color (see image below):

Now click on Shadow – Presets: I chose the first one of the „Perspective“:


Blur: 26 PT (or more, it‘s your choice)

Now you can go to 3-D Rotation again and play with the different Rotation-arrows until you are happy with your 3D Ebook Cover:

Don‘t forget to save your new 3D Ebook Cover.



And of course you can use this tutorial not only for 3D Ebooks… ?
