Have you ever hired a designer before and then been told that they are booked solid for weeks to come? This is unfortunately a trait of designers, they are often too busy to get your project completed quickly. But have you ever considered making your own ecovers, and I am not talking about using Photoshop here?
The problem with programs like Photoshop and even Gimp is that there is a steep learning curve attached to them. It can take weeks to become proficient and who has that much time to learn something new. Especially when you need a book cover created quickly.
The solution I have discovered is simple to use and produces professional results in as little as 15 minutes. Plus the cost is just a drop in the bucket when compared to hiring a professional designer.
I have been using a software program called MyeCoverMaker for several months now and am totally happy with the results. I can create book covers, reports, video and DVD covers and even banners within minutes. Plus I can download a 3D and 2D version of each cover.
I like 2D covers as they are good for using for promotional items and for using for the front page of PDF reports. Many Kindle authors are using this software to create stunning book covers without paying big bucks.
MyeCoverMaker has an instructional video that explains the entire process and you can watch it by visiting this link: eCover Maker Video
Once you are happy with your cover your download is available immediately. With a designer you would have to approve the cover and then wait for the final version to be delivered and this could take a few days. Your final book cover is rendered in a 24 bit PNG file to ensure the highest quality possible. All 2D versions are free.
I have easily made book covers in 15 minutes or less and have them downloaded and ready to use for my next product.
What I like about this software too is that you can create banners for your business. These could be related to your book or just be promotional banners for your business.
It is possible to try out MyeCoverMaker for free and I suggest that you do. Visit the site and follow the instructions to create your very first cover. You can select from background images and graphics that have been pre-loaded for you. Or you can use your own image. The site has 100’s of images, graphics, fonts and clip arts that you can use and these make a good starting point.
You don’t need to be a professional designer to create a good looking ecover. This software consists of you pointing and clicking your way to a new design. Try it out today and let me know what you think.
