Hi Folks,

Two questions:

1. Can you download a cover created by KDP Cover Creator and edit it yourself to re-upload as a finished cover?

and

2. Is there any way to move components such as title boxes, etc? From my experience, text is centered (vertically) or things just don't line up on occasion. Aside from images, I can't see any option to move stuff.

I've heard people extolling the virtues of the Createspace cover maker, but I find it even less flexible.

Go to Canva.com to make your cover. When done, save it as a JPEG to upload.

I'm afraid the answer to your questions is No. As Donna says, if you want a different cover, you have to make your own. Good luck!

Hmm... was hoping not to partake in yet another learning curve... Maybe I'll swing over to fiverr.com...
