Interesting title isn’t it? What if you could put yourself on the cover of not only TIME but every major magazine in the world? For example, you could grace the cover of People magazine as one of sexiest people alive!
How do you get started? You could open Photoshop and go through some very complicated and time-consuming steps. Alternatively, you could download a software called U.R.Celeb. This program does all the major work for you.
The program has a bunch of ready made magazine templates. Choose the magazine whose cover you want to grace. Then, hit the ‘Picture’ button and navigate to the picture you want to use. You can resize the picture according to your preferences.
The next step is to customize the magazine cover. You can add your own titles and text. You can also add pictures and text for smaller sections of the cover to give it a more ‘authentic’ feel. When you’re done, save your work, as an image file. The program also allows you to send the image as an email or print it.
This is one of those ‘fun’ programs that you can play with. Create covers of magazines featuring you, family members, or friends. Which magazine would you want to grace the cover of? Do you know of other ways to do this?
Update: The service has been discontinued. The project website is showing a file not found error, and it is likely that the project has been abandoned completely by its developers. Alternatives are available. Among them Mag My Pic to create fake magazine covers from a variety of available templates or the Windows software program U R Celeb to design custom magazine covers in minutes.
