Resizing Images and Removing Backgrounds

Using free software

Resizing Images and Removing Backgrounds

Your images need to be suitable for print if you are making a paperback cover, for viewing online if you are creating an ebook cover and about the same as the resolution you are filming at if you are creating videos for courses or as promos on YouTube.

I am going to demonstrate using slides for a video course which I am editing in Screenflow, but the method of resizing and removing backgrounds is the same for print, eBook covers or social media posts.

In this short course you will learn:

  • Why the resolution of your images should not be too big or too small
  • How to reduce their file size in Mac Preview or in Free pixlr.com software
  • How to remove the background from an image so that you can place a different background behind it or have a transparent background

I started my career as an interior designer but have always had a passion for books. In 2013 I wrote one, but like most authors did not have any connections in the publishing world so I decided to format it myself and publish it on Amazon. It was even a bestseller for a very short time.

During the writing and publishing process I was surprised to find how many of my author friends were being held back by not knowing how to get the best out of their writing software and not knowing how to self publish their books so I transitioned into writing books about writing software and teaching people how to self publish.

I had to learn Screenflow to make marketing videos for my books but soon discovered that it is much easier to explain software in a video than it is in a book so I switched to making video courses instead. 6 courses on Udemy so far and 3 are bestsellers.

So my mission statement is to inspire as many people as possible to embrace all the amazing technology we have access to these days that makes publishing easier than ever, and get them to write and publish their own stories and create their own video courses about what they know.
