I would be more than thankful if someone would/could upload a playing card template in photoshop format.
Would be great if the cards where "magic the gathering" sized so that i could glue and cut a couple of prototypes.

What version of Photoshop? How many cards per page? What page size? What resolution? Do you want space between the cards or do you want them to butt up against each other?

There is a program out there that makes custom MTG cards for you, if that's what you are doing... drop me a line and I'll give you details of it...

What's that called? I think I may have it... but I've never tried to print from it.

I guess that would be a decent way to proxy up prototype cards with text and a pic.

Not to be snooty, but why do you need a template when you could just measure a card and create a template yourself?

Magic cards are 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches, with a corner radius of 1/8 inch.

Im trying to use Photoshop 6.0.
A little space would be great, gotta think of trimming & bleeding, if my current project turns out okay it might end up in a printing press.
About 12 cards would fit on a A4 i believe, i have no idea about the resolution, in what resolution is the common type of cards like Magic the gathering and their likeness ?

Im not doing any magic cards, i just want to use that size as it is a good size and it slides into a deckprotector with ease.

However the program that you mentioned is still of interest.
So please tell me where i can find it.

If i was a photoshop wizard then i wouldnt ask.
Cards arent really my thing, but in my current design i have to add a couple of cards and thought that maybe someone more skilled than me would help me.

I´ll return the favour by comment other peoples designs and contribute to the community by sharing my designs and thoughts.
Arent this what this is all about ?

There are some templates in the download section but unfortunately they are in word format, and in that format i find it even harder to make decent prototypes.

The file can be found here:

You may need to change the file extension to .psd

The Magic card program is called MTG Editor, I forget where I downloaded it from, but it was free...

Well, I was an MTG junkie for a while so I have links to nearly every mtg related site worth visiting (honestly, no boasting . . .but now they're all dated). Here are a few you should check out:

The aforementioned set editor is running strong at [EDIT: Now at http://magicseteditor.sourceforge.net/]

Dante's cardmaker is mirrored at http://www.geocities.com/lotusvale0/base.html

It seems that those are the only ones on my list that are not defunct, oh well. I hope that helps!

The Magic Set Editor link is fine, but it's got a rogue bracket on the end of it, so it doesn't find the correct page! Try:
http://magicseteditor.sourceforge.net/ instead.
