 »Blurry ebook covers
WoodyBruce Help!  I'm going crazy with this CoverFactory

Followed the "Tips" regarding "Soften Edges"   Set to Yes.   It says  If enabled, the edges (both the edges between the sides, and those edges which are the occlude the background) are softened using anti-aliasing. This results in a more realistic image, although some people prefer not to use this option because it can make the edges look somewhat blurred.

I'm very frustrated because since I purchased it Feb 11th and attempting over 20 covers I'm still getting  very blurred text and actual book cover photo image regardless of whether I choose .bmp or .png file type. Using WINXP Pro, 850Mhz AMD Athalon Processor, 384Mb RAM, 30 Gigs of hard disk space, Display set to 600X800.

Any ideas about what I may be doing wrong?  After downloading the demo I assumed the fully enabled registered version of the program would produce a clear cover like those mentioned in all the great reviews on Ebookcompiler's website.  I can't believe that the program would be misrepresented like that . So it must be something I'm doing wrong. Please me let me hear from you if you have successfully used this program.

Any ideas or comments would be appreciated.

EBookCompiler I'm sorry I didn't spot this thread earlier

We may spoken by email?  And resolved it?  Sorry there was somebody I spoke to (and resolved their issue), va email, and I wasn't sure if it was you.

First check you have the 2.10 version, and if not download it.

Did you set the zoom % to 100? If you are highly zoomed in, then it would look wrong on screen.

Does that help?
