    Morning all, I am setting myself to task to revise my covers and previews and am wondering where you get your images for your covers from and where, if anywhere, there is genuinely 'free' clip art and borders available. Thanks in advance for any guidance...techy stuff is a bit of a weak spot!!

    There is some great free clipart and borders on ***. If it says that it is for commercial use then you can use it for free in your products that you sell. Read the conditions from the clipart artists.

    In addition to these I also use https://www.pexels.com/ . I use photos, pictures and cliparts from the above in my resources.
    More recently I also came across http://www.clker.com/ though I have not yet used it... note also that it is http and not https.

    I create all my covers and previews using Word and find that the least time-consuming way to create my covers and preview documents is to keep a template as a word document, into which I just keep loading the titles, descriptions and pictures before deciding on the background colour etc...
    My pictures on both covers and previews are mostly screenshots from my resources (using the Windows Snipping Tool) which I then scale, etc... to fit the template. Feel free to take a look :)
    :)It is quite rewarding when you have spent some time making your cover and then see it up there advertising your resource. Have fun! :D

    I second the use of pixa bay, but I mostly make my own on illustrator and Photoshop.
