My First Book Cover

What ratio do publishers prefer, 4x6?

 

I don't think the aspect ratio matters. Images usually get cropped for covers. Horizontals are OK too, although I suppose verticals get used more often.

 

 

Quite right. I've had vertical cropped horizontal (or square) and vice versa . . . but most have been vertical used in original format. It is a reason to leave lots of room for cropping, and imo, it's also a reason to shoot and process and submit at the highest possible resolution--front covers can pay very, very nicely indeed.

Thanks John, best not to frame too tightly then I suppose.

 

Edit. Should have read your post dd before posting.  :rolleyes:
