How to scan covers?
Clean the cover and scanner
Flatten the cover being careful not to damage the scanner
Check the alignment of your cover in your image manipulation software and rotate it (use guides against the text to check it’s all straight)
Crop the image
Check corners and fill them using the stamp tool
Remove dust using the stamp tool or healing brush tool
If the spine is warped a little (it shouldn’t be if you flatten the cover) use the dodge tool to lighten or darken the raised and sunken areas
Set the contrast curves to an S shape, pulling in the dark parts to be black, the light to be bright but not exploded
Increase the vibrance, being mindful to keep a natural look for faces especially
Use the levels to sharpen a little more
Use color balance to increase the blues a little in the low end, the yellows in the mid range, and reds in the higher level
You cover should look clean and flat with full corners and a sharp image. Now save as a jpg up to 15 MB for this website.
Remember that every time you save a jpg you lose a little data as your software recalculates and rounds up.
600dpi (dots per inch to start and 300dpi for the final version)
If you save as a PDF you’ll end up with an embedded jpg. You can add more than one cover in that PDF if you have alternates. That’s useful for your own catalog.
