Blogger/Designer Resource Links

I've created this page to collect resources that are useful to Bloggers, Cover artists and eBook designers. I will be adding to it whenever I find a new resource.

Image Sites

PSDCovers.com - A site full of Photoshop actions to turn 2D designs into 3D designs in minuntes, i.e. a flat book cover into what looks like a 3D book etc. Includes some tutorials on how to use the actions.
A tutorial by psdbox.com on how to use one of the above actions to best advantage.
senshistock.deviantart.com - a totally awesome pose reference source that can also be used in photomanips as well as for drawing reference under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported Licence.
