    I use Canva, but I can’t upload my book covers because they are too big…?

    Hello!!
    I agree, using Canva is a great option. My covers are a bit amateur-looking, but I’m happy with them overall! They’ll work until I can actually hire someone to create a cover for me… Ha ha!

      If the book cover is online, see if you can copy it and paste it into a file on a computer or laptop, then convert it to a Jpeg image. Jpegs can be uploaded onto the site.

        Canva is also free. Unless you want to have a more enhanced version.

          Yeah. I use the free version (don’t all us kids?) It makes me feel cheap, but hey, it’s cool. I write a magazine about writing, and I use it for designs in an on the covers of my magazine.

            Yeah totally. I’am pretty satisfied with the free version. And I like that you can upload photos if you aren’t satisfied with the ones Canva provides. I use it a lot for school, posters, everything.

    I don’t understand Getunderlined. It is quite confusing. I can’t upload a book cover that I got it done by a designer and I have got those pictures from Shutterstock. I also don’t know how to get back to the book I like to read. or continue where I left.

      For a cover, try to get it as an image on the device you are using on http://www.getunderlined.com. Then hit “upload cover” and choose the image.

    How do people do those photo collages?
    For a character profile? Where you can put multiple pics in a big square?

      I believe pixlr (pixlr express specifically) has an option to create collages.

          Are you still looking for that cover? If so, I’d be happy to do it. However, I would need a LITTLE more information . . .

    Can we post images here? How about in stories? Like, with HTML? Or is there a fancier way of doing this?

        HTML used to work in the books but it doesn’t seem to be working anymore :((
        I think the next best option would be to upload the images to sites like tinypic or imgbb and copy/paste the viewer link directly into comments like so:

          There’s also a site called imgur that doesn’t require any sort of account to upload images and supplies its own link.
