Starting a New Cover
To launch Cover Creator, click on the title of an existing book or click "Add new title." Under the Book Content section, scroll down to the book cover header and click "Launch Cover Creator." The Cover Creator interface will launch and provide instructions on how to proceed.Tip: Professional cover design services are also available.
Adding an Image
The image you use for your cover will be a focal point of your design, so choose carefully. You can provide your own image or select from the gallery of stock images available.
Images you provide should be of high quality and you must hold all rights necessary to use the image for your book cover.
Choosing a Design
After you've uploaded or selected your image, choose from one of ten base designs. If you can't find an image you're satisfied with, you can choose from cover designs that don't incorporate images.
Customizing Your Layout
Choose from an assortment of font sets, color schemes, and text layouts, or make direct changes to your text and images by clicking on each part.
Previewing and Submitting Your Cover
When you're done designing your cover, preview it to see how it looks in color, grayscale, and thumbnail modes.
Once you're satisfied, click "Save & Submit." Cover Creator will close and your cover will be loaded in KDP's "Edit book details" page.
Editing or Replacing a Cover
To edit your book cover, click "Edit my Cover Creator design." Cover Creator will launch so you can make the necessary changes to your cover. Just like other edits you make to your book, these changes won't be finalized until you continue to the book pricing and promotion page and click the button to publish your book.
