Image Size / Pricing for Stock Photography
Colorful Covers offers two tiers for pricing. The IMAGE ONLY is for those who are looking for clean stock images without the addition of text. Prices are listed below. Pricing for digital photos is based per download. All photos are 72 dpi original format. We recommend the following sizes, depending on how you want to use the image:
Web size – $35 (640x480 pixels). This is a SMALL size great for thumbnails, web images, blog pictures, social media sharing (Twitter and Facebook), and small promotional items.
Low-Res 1 Mpix – $50 (800x1200 pixels). This is a MEDIUM size that works perfectly for eBook covers. It fits within the confines of Barnes & Noble’s cover guidelines. It can also be used for small print sizes like 5x7.
Hi-Res 4 Mpix – $100 (1700x2500 pixels). This LARGE size is our most popular size. It's great for eBook covers and uploading covers to Amazon, Smashwords, and iBooks. This size also allows for quality printing of print book covers, small poster sizes like 5x7 or 8x10, and large promotional items.
Original – $150 (Approximately 3000x4000 pixels). This is the original size of the image. This HUMONGOUS size allows you to print amazing large poster sizes (like 30x40 or larger) with a crystal clear picture. Great for promoting at book signings and conferences.
THE IMAGE YOU SELECT IS EXCLUSIVE. This means it cannot be used by others. Once you purchase the image, it will be removed from the site. If you have questions, please contact us at 214-674-3814 or email@example.com
Need a size or an image other than the ones listed? Contact us for custom pricing.
PLEASE NOTE: Once you purchase the final image, there are no refunds allowed. For a list of our satisfied clients, see the CLIENTS tab.
Pricing for eBook Cover Design
EBOOK COVER DESIGN is available for those who want an image with text and other graphic elements (such as book title, author name, and/or alternate backgrounds). Pricing for eBook covers is generally $15-$25 more than the price of the IMAGE ONLY (depending on the extent of the design). To order an eBook cover design, find the Image ID on the gallery and then submit your request using the EBOOK DESIGN tab or click here.
Covers labeled as Premium Covers are not eligible for special promotions or discounts.
