Setting Up A Stock Cover

If you've chosen to use a Professionally-designed Pictavo cover (also called a Stock Cover), setting up your cover is as easy as dragging, dropping, typing and saving! All stock cover options are featured in the Inspiration Guide, as well as the cover brochure available for viewing and download here

Take a minute to see how easy it is to use a pre-designed stock cover within Pictavo by watching this video

To begin designing the cover, from the Dashboard select Outside Cover from the Design menu. Pictavo will automatically choose the correct size template for you based on the specifics of your project (e.g., page number and binding type). 

Click on the Art palette and open Covers

When you've decided on a style, simply drag and drop it onto the design space. 

Click Edit or double-click on the text box to add the school name and, in some instances, the year to the cover. 

Some aspects of the text boxes are editable (e.g., font size, text alignment) and Pictavo's contextual menus will disable anything that cannot be adjusted. 

Once you are satisfied with your edits, save the cover by clicking the Save icon in the upper left.
