So I thought I'd do my best to show everyone how to make a very basic ebookcover.
First, you must open your Power Point program.
Second, go to home.
Fourth, pick which look you want. I usually pick Blank.
Fifth, go to Design. Choose Page Setup.
Make your width at 6 and your height at 8. Click Okay.
Sixth, go to Insert.
Seventh, click on Picture. I chose one of my dogs, Sir Poops. You can also save a pic from the web.
A box will pop up like this:
Now you're ready to add your name and title. Go to Insert.
Then go to Text Box. Click on it. After, an arrow will appear. Move it to wear you want your name and title.
You can play with the text size, color, and font shape from the Home bar.
Now it's time to save my cover. Go to File.
Click on it. Then click on Save & Send.
After, click on Change File Type.
Then click on JPEG File Interchange Format.
Click Save when another box pops up.
Another box will pop up. Choose Current Slide Only.
Then, go to where ever you saved the file and open with Paint.
After, click on Resize.
Click on Pixels. Then, make your Horizontal at 600 and your Vertical at 800.
After, make sure you Save it.
I hope this helped even though its a no frills kind of cover. It takes me a while to get comfortable with strange and unknown territory.
Also, if you want to play around with your font, Lorelei Bell had a fabulous post on it. GO HERE TO READ
I hope everyone has a lovely Monday and week. I'll be at The Salon for the biggest part. Florida season is in full swing with snow birds and people wanting to look their best. They kind of slack about their appearance in the summer months though. It might have to do with sweat ... like a lot of it.
So I'll be around via the iPhone which by the way is a great topic for a blog all by itself ... that and Feedly.
Bye for now!
Hugs and chocolate,
