Bruce Jones teaches you how, using readily available tools, you can make graphics for promoting your book. Building your media kits is essential for promoting your book and a thumbnail graphic of the cover is the start.
In this training video I show you several different ways to create those small thumbnail graphics that you will need to promote your book online. We use Photoshop, Pixlr.com, PicMonkey and Canva along with Grab on the Mac and Snagit on the PC. I also show how you can add this graphic to your Google Blogger Blog or your WordPress Blog and connect it to your book's Amazon sales page.
Tools for grabbing your image from the screen
Grab, Mac screen grab utility located in the Application...Utility Folder
Snagit, PC tool available on line, there are many
Tools for sizing your image
Adobe PhotoShop or any photo editing application

Specs for the image
I have found 225 pixels wide or about 3 inches wide works very well
Resolution should be 72 dots per inch, dpi
J. Bruce Jones I am the author and publisher of over 40 books and I love teaching other people how to make and publish their own books. There is nothing like seeing an author hold their own new book in their hands.
