How To Make Amazing Free eBook Covers


This post is literally just as the title says. And nothing else. How to make good quality free eBook covers. When you make that grand product and get it ready for launch the last thing you need to get is a good cover designed for it. This can cost hundreds of dollars and take a lot of time to get done. Here at the blog I like to try and give people options, especially free ones! So – without further ado here is a free way to make amazing free eBook covers! Lets make one now….

Head over to 

You do not need to register for an account – these are the paid options, we are only interested in the free version.

Click on the ‘Start Here’ Icon

Next up choose the type of cover you want. The free version will allow you five choices.

I am going to choose the ‘Paperback Stack’

Next up you need to select a background colour. The free version will allow you to choose a background from the system defaults or a custom colour. There are plenty to choose from – more than in this pic.

Here you can move it and then select it in place – very simple. I have gone with the smokey background.

Ok – so now your background is in place its time to add some text.

Click the ‘Insert Text’ icon.

Here is where you can enter some text for your free eBook cover.

You can have lots of fun here – play around with the various options for your text. There are loads of fonts to choose from and many text effects. Just click on the corresponding menus. I have gone with ‘Growing’ font and a ‘Neonred’ Effect – once you are happy with your text click ‘Submit’

You can now drag it into place.

I also highlighted some other features you can use here.

Next we can insert some images. Click on the ‘Insert Images’ icon.

Here you can choose from loads of images. There are way more than I have shown in the picture. There are Graphics, Abstracts, Shapes and Stock images. The only thing you cannot do making free eBook covers here is upload your own images. Shame – but there are plenty to choose from.

So, select one or a few even and simply ‘drag’ them into position on your free eBook cover.

You can also change the size by ‘dragging’ the slider in the bottom left corner of each image.

I have added a few and also added some more text and come up with this.

When you are happy with your free eBook cover design, click ‘Finalize’

That is basically it – you just need to download it now to your computer so you can use it. I recommend making it have a transparent background. You can also adjust the size here by adjusting the slider again. So, make sure you click the ‘Transparent Background’ button and then click ‘Download 3D’. You cannot download in 2D in the free version.

And here is what we have! – Pretty nice hey? And all 100% free! Once you get the hang of this interface you will be knocking up free eBook covers in around 5 minutes. Easy.

So, next time you want to make some free eBook covers try this option.
