Kindle Direct Publishing accepts two types of files for cover images:
JPEG, or .jpeg
TIFF, or .tif(f)
KDP applies additional compression to images when displaying them on its website. For best results, images should be uploaded with minimal compression.
Requirements for the size of your cover art have an ideal height/width ration of 1.6, this means:
o A minimum of 625 pixels on the shortest side and 1000 pixels on the longest side
o For best quality, your image would be 1563 pixels on the shortest side and 2500 pixels on the longest side
Product images display on the Amazon website using RGB (red, green, blue) color mode. RGB is the color mode native to the web and many color screen displays, as these three colors displayed at varying levels of intensity create over 16 million colors.
Use color images whenever possible and relevant. The Kindle reading device has a black and white screen today but Kindle applications for other devices, such as iPhone or PC, take advantage of color fonts and images.
Borders for White Cover Art
Cover art with white or very light backgrounds can seem to disappear against the white background. Adding a very narrow (3-4 pixel) border in medium gray will define the boundaries of the cover.
If you have questions please ask.
P.S. As a gift to you and also as a reference (if you need it) to understand what the book is about I have attached the pdf draft version to this contest. If you happen to like the book and would like to review it on Kindle that would be appreciated too using the link above (this will be revision 2).

“We hosted a graphic contest for one of our book covers and Stevie went above and beyond with multiple submissions to capture the spirit (theme) of the book. The cover was both colorful and relevant. Will work with again! Thanks Stevie.”
