Hi L,


You'll probably want to use the Cover Creator.  You can pick from a number of designs, then upload your jpg without conversion.  It will make your cover with the correct proportions.

Most likely you're not going to use only the picture as the cover; you'll add the title and author to the front cover and spine, and have a blurb on the back cover.  When creating the cover (using Cover Creator or any other program you'll import the photo and put it into the location you want and adjust it to the size you want.

As an alternative to the limited and cantankerous Cover Creator, forum sensei Walton has a step-by-step how-to that uses a Bookow cover template and GIMP to create a custom cover to be uploaded as a PDF. Even a nontechnical person should be able to follow the steps.
