What are easy steps to create an ebook cover? I have a small ebook with 56 pages and want to have a professional cover for it, which software should I use and how to create?

Thank you

I always advice to let others work for you if possible. This way you have more time to focus on your strategies. So another thing you could think of is to to outsource it on Fiverr. Search for Ebook Cover on Fiverr and you will get tons of peeps who provide this service.

Just go through their portfolio and see if you like it. This way you will have your Ebook cover for just 5 bucks.

Tim Dutch suggests Fiverr. Upwork.com could be another option if you're looking for more quality. Yet another option is 99designs, and the envato marketplace -- there is a designer's section.

Fiverr is the most cost-effective option I'm aware of, but you may get people who are trying to shave off work by using a template instead of spending the time to design something eye catching. I've found both great designers and people who are using templates and don't put forth the effort for the money you are handing them.

Covers are the most important for an ebook - the color, the title and any slogan that is on it. Since there is no physical product to touch, it's critical to spend more time on the title and the cover itself.

What you can do is to get photoshop (it has a 30 days trial) or gimp (which is free), get a few PSD ebook cover design templates. You can get them pretty cheap on graphicriver.net or search for free ones online. But just get as many as you can.

Play around with the templates and mix them up if you have to, simply do everything you can to make it as original as possible. When you get stuck simply go to Youtube and search for a fix.

Once you have the design part sorted then download some "cover actions" online, learn how to use them and you're done.

Hope that helps.

I am a professional graphics designer, and I create book covers for ebooks for many authors including my own because I am also a novelist. If you really want it done professionally, message me, and I can create it according to your budget.

For me, the best software to create professional ebook covers is Laughing Bird logo creator software. I use this software to create and design pretty much anything I want including logos, banners or info graphics with just drag and drop provided the graphics are added in the software. Usually, some premium graphic packs and templates are sold separately but the software is free to download with few graphic packs which comes with it.

I will always recommend Photoshop for any design. It's the best tool to make logos that look professional and it's very simple once you learn how to use the application.

Photoshop is a very popular program. It is the ultimate solution for most of the design work. However, in order to create an ebook cover on photoshop you need photoshop skills. It takes months, even years, to master photoshop skills.

Apart from PHOtoshop, there are other designing programs as well, for example illustrator, GIMP etc. However, all of these program require specialized skills.

If you are publishing your ebook on Amazon Kindle, you don't have to do the cover. Just upload the image you want on the cover and run cover creater, you will have amazing designs in one minute.
