How to unpack a downloaded template?

This is really easy:

  1. Pick a template from gtemplates
  2. Select the download link and save it on your computer
  3. After this you have an archive (.ace file) which you have to unpack using a specialized software like Winace or Winrar because it is compressed.
  4. Unpacking gives you 3 main files:
  • 1 .psd template you can edit in Photoshop
  • 1 .png preview which you can see with your image viewer
  • 1 link to gtemplates
  • and maybe 1 helpful used text font might be included if we consider it’s needed.

Using the template is itself simple again. You can open the .psd file with Adobe Photoshop and follow the instructions inside, or if there aren’t any instructions then select the text with the type tool and replace it with what you want. Make sure you selected the layer you want to edit from the layers panel on the right.




  1. that was the first template i dloaded..

    nd winrar is saying.. no archive found 😦

    wat do i do?

  2. I use WinAce archiver, try that one maybe it works, or try downloading again…
