i want to make an awesome cover, but i don't know how. i was wondering if someone with experience could help me.
Personally, I make use of Paint.NET because it's free but from what I've heard, Photoshop grants a lot more effects. Just let your inspiration fly and use apt fonts for the titles. Sorry, since I'm pretty new to book cover making too so I don't have that many tips. I'm sure you'll find more useful answers if you posted in the book covers forum http://www.wattpad.com/club/30-book-cover
@CorNicFer666 you can use a pic from ur ipod but you have to transfer it to ur computer first

@GraceMillz1023: Thanks for suggesting picnik.com

How do i add a picture into the pic i put into picnik?
How do I make a Photoshop cover with two pics?
gimp is an awsome one to use most of the coves ive see i know have been made on gimp
this cover was made on gimp
@GraceMillz1023 You really helped! I now have an awesome cover for my book!
I use Picasa 3 or Photoscape
Before shutting down, Picnik recommended some other websites for photo editing: Creative Kit in Google+ (this is where picnik has officially moved), picmonkey.com (this one is alot like picnik), and aviary.com (which I haven't experienced yet).
I use picmonkey.com. To get the right size click resize and then put in the dimensions 256x400 or you could get somebody to do it for you
Is it wrong that I pulled off a picture from google? I gave the credits to the creator but they don't know I'm using it... I don't want to be a pirate :(
It's best not to get photos from Google because they may be copyrighted which would cause a lot of trouble for just one pic. So it's better if you try not to use Google.
Try referring to this guide, there are some useful tips about creating and uploading covers.
You can do it on your ipod. I use the Fotolr Photo Studio or Instacollage. You will have to upload it to your computer but it works.
PicMonkey and Foto Flexer are both good sites and you don't have to downoad it.
I use Photobucket.com
Try using this web :) Whenever I do covers, This link is my best friend ^___^
How do you UPLOAD a picture for a cover..............?
To upload a picture for a cover go into 'Create' and right under the Wattpad-given cover should be 'edit' click that and 'upload' and voila!
Hope that helps
