e-Book covers


Recommended Posts

Hi all, The Grumpy Old Chef here.

Totally new to this forum so bound to ask stupid questions or foul up in some magnificent way.

All I would like to know, really, apart from next week's winning lottery numbers, is if there is a tutorial anywhere on using paint.net to make e-Book covers?

Next, I'd like to know how to use paint.net at all, but I guess I'll have to figure that out for myself.

Thanks indeed,

Grumpy

You'll have to be more specific, please. What kind of e-Book? What kind of cover? What specific effect are you going for? And all of these questions pale in comparison to the first one - Winning lotto numbers? 02, 33, 48, 22, 12 and 29. :-)

And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.

All your questions fill me with dread at what lies in front of me.

I have quite a lot of e-Book cover templates that work in Photoshop, which I'd have to sell a kidney or two for.

I was sort of hoping that I could find a way to use them with paint.net.

Is this Pacific enough? I'm a bit long in the tooth and short in the temper. 12 :lol:

What type of templates are they?

Now you've got me. LOL

I'll have to dig them out and post later.

I just know that the first instruction is something like load or insert into Photoshop.

At that, they were consigned to the bowels of my hard drive only to be retrieved when "my ship came in".

I'll have a look and get back to you if that's OK.

Sure, no problem :-) If they're image files, you can put them into Paint.NET. If they're some other type of file, I'll see how I can help you from there.
