The Cover Template is not a Photo Editing Program but a JPG with guidelines. You can place this JPG into a photo editing program like Photoshop or InDesign. You will use this JPG like a "Layer" when creating your cover. If you want a simple way to create a cover you can use our cover generator on our site. Another option that may be a little more difficult but offer more variety is a free online program called Canva. Some users have difficulty with our JPG in canva so you might need to start from scratch. Take a look at our Getting Started Videos below. Hope this helps and Good Luck! :-)
