How to Create a 3D eBook Cover

In this post I would like to share with you how to create a 3D book cover for your
eBook. 3D book covers are perfect when you are giving an eBook away as a free gift, advertising your eBooks online and when self publishing your Kindle book on Amazon. I have personally found that converting my Kindle book cover to 3D helps to sell more books. The reason for this is that when your book is displayed with other related books, a 3D cover stands out and therefore grabs the attention of the prospective buyer.

To create a 3D book cover we shall be using Pixlr free online editor http://pixlr.com/editor/ and a 3D blank template of a book cover.

Click here to download the 3D cover which I use. To download, Right Click on your mouse and Save As.

 

Step 1Click Open Image from Computer and import the blank 3D book cover.
