Create a coverage image for CreateSpace August 28th, 2013

Requirements for a Createspace coverage image:

6.5 inches wide X 4 inches high, 300 DPI, jpeg

  1. I scan an image (picture), save it as jpeg.
  2. Using MS Word, I insert it into a blank file.
  3. Using picture format – size it to 6.5X4
  4. Save image as doc.
  5. Print image
  6. Because I have an HP Officejet Pro 8500A
    1. I scan the printed image
    2. Set dpi @ 300
    3. Crop out the white space
    4. Save it in MS Word as jpeg
    5. Direct Createspace to this saved image when using cover creator.

The author photo is done the same way.

The entire process takes a few minutes.
