Tutorial [Guide] Create a Custom Graphic for SPIGEN Ultra Hybrid Case (not using Photoshop)

Hey I just wanted to add my 2 cents for those who don't have Photoshop and want to "easily" create a Custom Backplate for the SPIGEN Ultra Hybrid case.

You will however need two free pieces of software:
  1. To edit, Paint.NET from: http://www.getpaint.net/ (3.5MB)
  2. To print, Irfanview from: http://www.irfanview.com/ (1.8MB)

I found this great .png template on Reddit (http://www.reddit.com/r/Nexus5/comme...sert_template/) but it is inverted for some reason?

I corrected the orientation and added a 2nd layer to be opened with Paint.NET: https://www.dropbox.com/s/bir0wsygr0...Templatex1.pdn (523KB)

If you like here it is with:

4 backplates per A4 page: https://www.dropbox.com/s/6ucank2vf3...Templatex4.pdn (2.14MB)
3 backplates per page on US Letter: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jwm5p4zyz4...-US_Letter.pdn (1.38MB)

  • It is VERY important that when you import your images you do not resize the page.
  • When you finish save the file as a .png and it will flatten the image for you.

    To Print
  • Open the .png image with Irfanview and select print.
  • Under “Print size:” choose “Original size (from image DPI)

Here’s an A4 I did for my wife:
