NCAA football 2008 is almost here, the freshman introduction articles can wait, and for many of us who thrive on the thrills of college football consider this to be the true start of the football season. We take our dork **** to EB Games or whatever other store, occupied by other nerds, and wait in line for the game. I have my preorder ready to go to the EB games at midnight, last year I was able to comfortably wait until the line was small, hopefull we all have the same luck. Anyways, I have decided to make some custom covers for the occasion!
A while back EA released the cover in psd format and Ive made a few (26) covers. It started as a few UF covers, but then it evolved. None of these were real difficult to make, the hard part is printing them in the proper size. I dont know about XP, but in Vista you can only print in the default settings (8x10, 5x7, 4x6, etc), and the proper size to fit my xbox case in 7 inches wide by 8 inches tall.
To get it to print correctly:
Save the file
open in good old mspaint
choose print (ensure auto center is turned off, both horizontally and vertically or else it will print on two sheets!)
Then print, it should print perfect size. mspaint is the only program I could find which would print in actual size and not formatted to Vista's liking.
Supload.com is the only service I could find which would allow the pixel size (its big but thats because of the 300 dpi, it wont print that huge), some of them look kind of funky on the monitor when they are at full pixel value, but printed out they are much clearer:
First though some random Gator ones:
And of course, the chosen one himself, Tim Tebow
