(Version unknown, they downloaded it around February)

I edited this from BT's GIMP template and Pheonix19's Photoshop Japanese Template. Give them the credit, but I am the one who created the RANKS. This template contains Exceed Monsters. Hope this is helpful.

Help + FAQ
I ASSUME YOU ALREADY HAVE BASIC KNOWLEDGE OF GIMP/PHOTOSHOP.
If you don't, here's a guide for Photoshop users:
Open photoshop, click File->Open and choose the template PSD.
Name: click on the name layer in the layers panel, choose text tool (the "[T]" icon) and click on the card name in the window. then type the new name
Circulation, Set ID, Password, Type, Effect, ATK, DEF, Creator (exceed only) also follow the same procedure.
Level: Open the level layer group by clicking on the arrow next to the Layer Group. Then disable the level layers you don't want by clicking on their eye icons. If a layer doesn't have the icon, it won't be seen. e.g. If I want LV4, I will remove the eye icons from LV5,LV6,LV7...LV11
Picture: Paste the picture onto the template, press Ctrl+T to resize it to fit insize the frame box exactly, then click on any tool on the tool bar and make your choice at the dialog box that appears.
Holo sticker: Use the eye icons to enable the sticker you want and disable the other(s)
To make Exceed Cards: Enable (click the empty box next to the layer icon to bring the 'eye') all green layers (some are in layer groups)
• What type of monster cards are supported?
All that I know of: Normal, Effect, Ritual, Fusion, Synchro, Dark Synchro, Token, Exceed + an additional recolorable background is supplied, which by default comes in Slifer Red color.
• What type of Spells/Traps are supported?
All known types are supported
• I don't have the right fonts!
All required font links are provided in this post.
• Some elements seem choppy.
Since I could not find HQ images of WATER attribute or Dark Synchro level stars, they are upscaled and look choppy. They will be fixed if in later versions someone can provide HQ images of such icons.
• I don't think this alignment of [card part] is correct.
All layers can be moved It's recommended that you do not move the non-text layers. Creator can only be Edited for Exceed Monsters.
• So this is free?
*sigh* Yes it is. I did put in at least 10-12 hours of total effort into making this, so I hope you like it. Payment is not required but reps/donations/thankful comments are very much appreciated. Read for rights below.
• What about rights? So I can't do anything to this since it's free?
Do whatever you want to this PSD, just don't do two things:
1. Don't claim it as your own (you don't have to always credit if you use it, although that would be nice.)
2. Don't sell it in a shop. Please refrain from selling individual elements from this template too, I have ripped them ALL myself (unless otherwise stated).
3. You can mirror this link but don't post it outside this thread.
Permission to use elements has been given to: Zextra
(Requests can be made, but I reserve the right to decide whether permission can be given or not.)
• I don't think I require such a huge template...
After finishing your card, merge all layers and use the Image Size command and then use Save As jpeg or whatever, OR save a copy of the template itself resized [without merging], which you can use to make your cards.
• Can you guarantee updates?
Patience is the key, no 'guarantee' as such though.
Suggestions, questions and constructive criticism is very much welcome
