    Trying to make a book cover in word 2008 on a macbook.
    I have a photo I want to use but want to write the authors name and book title on it. I have been able to make a rather small (in pixels) image using a CD jewel case label software package.
    Any tips? I want 1000 pixel x 1600 pixles high.

    And I am as dumb as

    Thanks Pete

    Resize the base photo in Preview then add text either in Preview or in word.

    superimpose words on photo

    Hi brop52,
    You put me on the right road. I solved it by first re-saving the image as a PDF as I could not insert text into it as a jpg. In the PDF format I inserted authors name in one box and the book title in another.
    I saved and then re-saved as .jpeg.
    Whilst it is not as perfect as I would like, I do now have a book cover of correct dimension and looking as I wanted it.
    Just in case it does make it, look out for an author called Vincent Noble. But don't hold your breath.
