Review - Book Brush

For the past week, I've been playing around on the website called Book Brush,, which is basically a website where authors, publishers, and bloggers can create advertising and social media images.

If you follow this blog regularly, then you would already know I love to use images in my posts. I create many of the post headers myself by using different software and online programs, so naturally I was intrigued with Book Brush.

Book Brush has two different "creator" programs to use on their website - a custom image creator and a video creator. You can register for free without a credit card and create 3 images per month, but if you want additional features you'll have to sign up for the "Plus" package for $8 a month (paid yearly at $96)! There's a 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee!

Creating an image with Book Brush is fairly simple. To begin with you need to pick what image size you need. You can customize the size to whatever you want or you can use one of the "popular"sizes that can be used on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.. There are many backgrounds (over 1 million free images) and templates available to choose from. There are even a few different book templates, which you can covert a 2D cover to 3D. Additionally, there are many different fonts for adding text and a wide variety of stamps to add to your image.

To use the video creator, you'll need to have already made an image or images. Then you add video effects and change the image transparency. 

Note: Book Brush cannot be used with Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer. It's only supported on Chrome, Firefox, & Safari.

Final Thoughts

Book Brush is really easy to use. All you need to do is upload your book cover and within a few minutes you can create an unique social media image or video. It reminds me of the another image creator website called Canva, which I have used many times. The big main difference is you can make a 3D cover a lot faster with Book Brush. It only took me a few minutes to create the two above images in this post it!

Overall, I had a blast testing out Book Brush. It's a great website for authors to create amazing social media images to advertise their books. Also, the it's great way for book bloggers to create neat looking post images for reviews and giveaways!
