    I know some people use Photoshop or hire someone else to do it. What other methods are there? I know of Canva and MyECoverMaker. I've used Canva, but not MyECoverMaker. Has anyone here tried MyECoverMaker?

    I'm looking for alternatives that I can do myself.

    What's wrong with Photoshop? Is you can't afford it try Inkscape (vector), or Krita (pixel).

    Do you think this is worth the money? Has anyone else here tried it?

    I'm not too good at this stuff. I just need something I can quickly use to make covers without much of a learning curve.

    It's always better to look before replying. There is a free but limited version you can try, then if you like it you can upgrade
    I am not an affiliate of the site by the way

    Why dont you use photoshop actions. With an image and the tilte of book and simple one click, your ecover ready.

    You are right and I agree. I've always had the feeling that the site has been kind of abandoned. I'm not sure why I felt that way, but it's the reason why I never put any time into it.
