Are you looking for a magazine front cover saved as a PSD file, so you can drop your photographs into the layout?

If you've got some sketches or screen grabs of what you want I might be able to knock you up something...

All images are transparent Hi Resolution 300 dpi 8"x10" files compatible with Windows or MAC. They work with most popular digital image editors including PhotoKey 4 and PhotoShop. You simply place these images on top of existing photo's to create cool magazine covers.
thats what i read on a site that has the covers

Ahh I think I see, So are you after just 1 magazine cover but to your own design, saved as a PNG with an alpha channel (The magazine text and graphics will be on a transparent background to allow you drop in your own background image.)

I could knock you up something, but would need to know what text you want, if you've got Photoshop or any DTP program, this really ins't to hard to do.

i am no good with design stuff when it comes to imaging software
but this site
is the shows i will be doing
and want it to look as authentic as possible
i am thinking the tittle of the mag would be ram rodeo weekly
and a spot to put a picture of some one naming them super fan of the week
the made up stories like a real mag on the front
and some where where i can change the name of the venue i will be at as it changes weekly
maybe a pic of a bucking bull
