    While spoono's tutorial is amazing and very cool, a lot of companies out there that feature "box art" of their products simply take pictures of them and then edit the pictures in photoshop. Just thought I would let you know

    Yikes, forums are almost too much fun.

    if you take photos you may get the background which doesnt match the rest of the page. so spoono is better methinks

    Spoono still had to edit the images he scanned. Either way it is about the same process.

    You can also create simple vector artwork and export it as an image... using illustrator, corel, etc. Especially from the image you showed, I don't see anything that can't be done in Illustrator -- or photoshop just as easily.

    An interesting plugin for illustrator that many people in the packaging industry use is called FoldUp 3D:

    Just another option for you to use if you'd like.
