hey y'all so we've all been confused, angry, or upset about this new cover thing wattpad got going on but luckily here's how to get over that.
so them changing the sizing means they want you to use their cover app and not other apps or your camera roll.
and i know what you're thinking. never used it, and not planning on it. but this time around they actually want us to use it.
go ahead and do what you usually do to make a cover. but don't upload it on wattpad.
so when you go to upload your cover and see "create cover with desygner" click it, download the app. (even if you don't want to. trust me, i know the feeling. but this time it's actually gonna save us.)
here's the app;
blah blah blah its like any other graphic app. be creative as you can, make your covers as you normally would. (disclaimer: you can use this app if you'd like but most people have their own ways of making covers.)
step one: create. start from blank photo or photo grid.
step two: if you already have your cover/picture you want to use, click the one mountain.
step three: click replace and pit the photo that you want.
step four: save or even change the template. (you can also make collages on the templates, they acc seem pretty cute and useful.)
then you're done.
BUT WAIT, DO NOT SAVE THEM TO YOUR CAMERA ROLL!!
(this will only put you back at square one, literally.)
step five: you're going to click the three dots.
step six: click share.
step seven: click the wattpad symbol.
now it's gonna bring you back to wattpad and then it's easy from there.
step eight: just click the story you want to upload it to.
and then it uploads as regular!
share this please with the rest of the wattpad community! or anyone you know that may find this helpful!
i feel like i just found the cure to a wattpad sickness lol. i hope this was helpful for all my writers that needed to upload covers!! <333
