Blank Templates & AsukaBook Photoshop® Tool

You can resize, enhance, color correct, and lay out your photos onto our already created and downloadable Blank Templates.

An alternative to downloading the Blank Templates, is to download and install the AsukaBook Photoshop Tool (ABPs), a plug-in that integrates seamlessly into Photoshop, which allows you to create the blank templates within Photoshop, export your design, and convert your design to another product and/or size.
