@schaufel - try here ==>> [Custom Covers] Blanks, Templates . . .

Hopefully someone will drop by who will be able to address the other issues

I like the entire picture to be the cover, nut just an inset, but just plain text gets lost in the image. I've attached a few images to show what I mean. The first one, I made myself in Photoshop, and the second image I found on DeviantArt for an alternative look.

Also, I'd like to use just a generic-looking cover for fanfics where I can't find an appropriate piece of fanart, but my Google-fu is failing me. Does anyone know where I can find any sort of images like the old iBooks' generic covers? The new ones stink - I liked the leather-looking ones on the old iBooks that came in all sorts of colors. I'd love to make something like that a default template.

Thanks!
Generate Cover allows you to define many cover templates (image, font, size and placement)

What might be broken (if I am using it correctly) is on the Fonts tab

Fill color works. The letters change when you use the color picker on the right. (Font was Maroon)

Background. and Border. I am assuming this is for the text box
Nuttin. happens when I change those (I tried black with a white border)

I expected this would have given me Maroon Letters on a Black field, surrounded by a white line

I can do this with a CSS

Ahhh! That's exactly the kind of thing I've been searching two nights for and kept failing to find. Thank you!
