Book Cover Image for book

I am in the final stages of my book and creating a cover for it.


I have searched the gallery of Createspace images which are available.  I have not quite found one that fits what I am looking for.  I created my own cover in word, but the resolution image is less than 300 DPI.  Has anyone gone ahead and used a low resolution image anyway for your cover?  If so, what were your results?  Does anyone have any advice?  I really want my cover image to look a certain way.  Please help or offer suggestions.


Thanks,


Alicia

Don't to it, especially if it contains a lot of detail. Watch my video about cover creation for a few tips.

Re: Book Cover Image for book

Being that the cover is the first thing a person notices about your book, it's important to do it properly. There is too much competition out there so you need to stand out -- in a good way, with a great cover. Don't use MS Word to design your cover -- use a graphics program. And only use high-resolution images.
