I am in the final death throes of putting together the dead-trees version of “the digital cuttlefish–vol. 1″, and I am out of my depth. All I want is to put a book cover together, using my beautiful cuttlefish picture (Michael McRae, artiste) and the words “The Digital Cuttlefish” in a fairly mundane font (currently, Times CE). And everything I try gets rejected, because I don’t have a clue about what I am doing.
In the words of lulu:
Images should be in PNG, JPG, or GIF format
Back Cover image should be a minimum of 300 dpi
Your picture should be about 1838 pixels wide and 2775 pixels tall
To allow for cropping, folding, and variance keep important details 3/8th inch from the edge of the image
I am open to any number of different looks, as long as it loads. If you need me to send you the full-sized jpeg of my cuttlefish pic, let me know in the comments.
