To make this I downloaded a photo of the person I wanted from the Internet. I used Photoshop to block out just his silhouette. I used the eraser tool because the magic lasso tool could not pick up on the color differences, thought that tool is typically easiest to cut just what you want in your photo. I then put my cropped section photo into canva.com, an online design tool and used their free text to make the book cover work. You can play around with text, color, font, as well as photos to make your book cover what you want. I looked at a few self-help books to get ideas and really thought about my character to sell the book as his.
