Description

Now You Can Stop Spending Lots of On Ghost Designers to Design Ecovers for Your Books

If you publish lots of books on Kindle and the Smashwords platforms then you will be spending lots of money to design ecovers if you're not designing them yourself. If you use ghost designers for this important task, it's likely you're not getting the required result you desire. 

You don't have to pay so much money to have your ecovers designed for you, you can do it yourself achieving great results. This course will help you to achieve this effectively. 

I have used Screen cast method to record this course since it's a technical course. I have tried to make it look simple for beginners even if you have not used Macromedia Fireworks before. I tried my best to go at a pace you will be comfortable with so that you can get the details effectively. 

I only showed how you can use the basic tools in Fireworks to get this done. I used Macromedia Fireworks 8 for this course which you can download for a free trial online. Other versions have similar interface. 

Practice tests are given all through the course. The average lecture time is 5 minutes. 

You will be learning:

1. How to combine text and image effectively on your ebook cover. 

2. How to combine color effectively on your ebook cover.

3. How to remove background from images.

4. How to find good, relevant and free images for your projects.

5. And more.

Go ahead and enroll for this course and let me meet you in class.
