eBook Cover Software

Owl Reader

 

 

There are a number of ebook cover software products to choose from. These products are also known as ebook cover makers, ebook cover creators or ebook cover generators. They all perform the same fundamental task. They create ebook covers.

At present the market for ebook cover software is very competitive. This has helped ensure good quality products at sensible prices.

There are a number of advantages of using ebook cover maker software to employing the talents of a graphics designer.

The software is relatively easy to use and professional looking covers can be quickly designed and created by following a sequence of steps. It is very cost effective when compared to a graphic design service, especially if you require several covers. It is usually downloadable and ready to use upon completion of your order. With no waiting period, you can begin your creation at once.

Good quality graphics impress buyers. If 3D style covers interests you but the cost of employing a graphic designer is too expensive, why not create your own. If you want ebook cover software that is simple and easy to use package and produces professional results, check out the Cover Factory

The CoverFactory software includes an easy-to-follow wizard that takes you through all the main steps of creating your new Cover. Although easy to use, CoverFactory has a host of powerful features like adding shadows and reflections and object rotation on all 3 axes.

 

The company are so confident of their product that a free evaluation version is available and can be downloaded from their site without an obligatory email address. I have verified this by downloading a free copy of their latest CoverFactory V2 release on 16th March 2004.
