This book has been designed for people with little or no experience in designing a book cover or program box. It is a step-by-step, photo rich manual you may follow as you are actually creating your own cover.
Once you’ve done it once, you’ll be able to repeat and refine your process until you end up with extremely professional icons and covers customized the way you want it using basic tools your computer came with and free programs you can download off the net.
Suggestion; you may want to save your work each time you add something new under an increasing number (i.e.: “title of your book/box” 1.jpg, “title of your book/box” 2.jpg, and so on) This way, if you make a mistake, or would have preferred not to add something, you can re-load a previous version without having to start from scratch.
Yes, there is an UNDO button. It was the method I depended on up until the day that I worked on a book cover for over 5 hours (without saving the results once) and suffered a power loss (of 10 seconds). I lost the entire project and had to start again. Save your work as you go.
Another reason to save often is that you will probably be able to “reuse” sections of your work for other projects saving you the trouble of re-creating something you had already done.
