Box Art: You know all those pictures of boxed software from companies that don’t sell anything but downloads? No surprise — the boxes never existed.
Sometimes you need to create a 3D software box, hardcover book, or other box-like object in a pinch. It could be done the long way by using a 3D program, or you could even take a digital photo of the real item. However, a fairly good result can be achieved with nothing more than a 2D image of the cover of the box and Photoshop.
People just feel better seeing a box. They feel like they’re getting something more.
