Get Inspired

Read the Make a Book Cover chapter in the Guide to Using Pressbooks. This chapter highlights user-friendly tools, including the Pressbooks cover image generator. We do not recommend using Canva.

Cover Image Generator

Pressbooks has its own cover image generator that you can use to create cover images. Click this link for steps on using this tool.

Image Resolution

webbook is the default format for all books created on UTSA Pressbooks. Whichever tool you use to design your cover image, the final image must meet the 900×1200 minimum requirement for a webbook.

Why is this important? Depending on where and how you make your book available, cover image resolution expectations will change. Follow the guidelines for every platform to ensure that your image is sharp and beautiful everywhere.
