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

@GraceMillz1023 You really helped! I now have an awesome cover for my book!
If anyone is using picnik for wattpad, you should know that they are cancelling picnik sometime in april. All premium features are free for anyone who visits the website, and all premium members will be refunded.
@NerdinessOfAllTime you're welcome. I'm glad I could help.
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).
- Find an image you want to use
- Go to www.picmonkey.com
- Click edit a photo
- Click crop, check the box and enter in the dimensions 256 and 400 (in that order). Save your changes when you've decided on an area.
- Mess with the effects.
- Add your title and username somewhere by clicking the P.
- Save your finished cover. If you want an example of how one can turn out: http://www.wattpad.com/story/1308309-we-were-meant-to-fly (just did this today!)
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.
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
Is there a app to make covers? Because I work on my iPod...
There is a Wattpad app. If you download it onto your i device, you can take photos straight from your camera roll
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
