How to make a book cover

  1. Select an appropriate format for your cover

    Your first step is to choose the correct sizing so your graphics and text turn out exactly as you want them. A portrait-oriented, rectangular size is typical for a book, but you can alternatively use a custom size to really stand out from the crowd.

  2. Work within your genre

    Reflect on who you are as a writer, and what genres your writing fits into. This will help you determine a theme around which to center your cover.

  3. Bring your words to life through visuals

    Have a photo in mind for your cover? Simply upload it to your template and edit it as you see fit. Or, if you aren't quite sure what you want for an image, scroll through free stock photos and find something attention-grabbing and suited to your work.

  4. Make your text a treat to read

    Next, you can adjust your font so that it is custom-tailored to your title and other cover text. Select a font that is not only bold and eye-catching but also fits with the mood you're conveying.

  5. Publish your cover for the world to see

    Finally, your cover art is finished and ready to share. Save your cover image, and then download it for printing or attaching to your e-book. You can also spread your cover across social media to attract attention for your actual book release.

Design a cover that tells a story

Now you know the basics of how to use this e-book cover creator to form your book cover, but you can take as much time as you need to ensure your artwork is spot-on. You can adjust your color palette to reflect the genre or create an emotional impact, and you can even put a filter on your background image if you need a unique effect.

Boost your readership and creativity

Your book is your thought child, and you want to see it impact as many people as possible. With Adobe Spark, you can capture the essence of your words and display them for your audience, so your book speaks louder than ever. You can also save money on design by using this book cover creator. You'll spend more of your funding where you need it most and save time and effort in the process. Unleash the potential of your written word with a book cover that exudes creativity.
