When I create covers, I use a three step process:

  1. Adobe Photoshop - this is where I cut out my characters and or objects that I want on the cover! It’s also fun to photoshop the characters limbs in a different position than the average action so they stick out!

  2. PiZap - this app helps you get the exact size for you cover so that it works out ( it is 640 by 1136 ) It also has a bunch of fun fonts to use!

  3. Polarr or PicsArt - polarr has a TON of fun filters and other things to make your cover look awesome! PicsArt has a ton of different tools that you can use to spice things up a bit!

All of the apps are free and are pretty simple to use!

Hope I helped!
