I'm trying to run an Bookbub Ad but I have run into a problem. They ask for an image size of 300 x 250 pixels, which is ridiculously tiny. All of my ad work is massively larger than this and reducing even a simple book cover for the ad destroy the quality completely. I can't create entirely new covers for an ad, so what is the solution? Am I missing something here? That's possible, I'm not tech at all.

Thank you. :) :)

When you size down, don't do it all at once. Size down by a small increment - 25%, for example - then double click to accept the size, then repeat until it's the size you want. That usually works for me.

Thanks - I can get it down to around 500 x 350 but after that it just looks very fuzzy and poor quality. I must be missing something here because BB have a lot of great ads and people aren't creating brand new book covers each time they want to use them.

Are you using PS?
No, GIMP but it's pretty good. Reducing from 3000 pixels to 300 is just not working. Does PS do this sort of reduction?

I’ve been able to get it to work for me on PS. If you want to shoot me your JPG file, I’ll give it a try. shayne (at) wickedgoodbookcovers (dot) com
