Many wonder what it would be like to appear on the cover of a famous magazine. This never becomes a reality for most people. However, you can create your own magazine cover, using any photos, text and colours you like. Some magazine cover generators even allow you to spoof actual publications. Making a magazine cover online is free, fast and fun.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Take a clear photo of your face that is at least 500 pixels in width and height. You can use a web cam, scan a photo, or take one with a digital camera that can connect to your computer.

  2. 2

    Choose a magazine cover site to use, such as Big Huge Labs's fake magazine cover tool or the Fake Magazine Cover website. Both of these options are free.

  3. 3

    Upload your photo onto the chosen site. Next, decide what style of magazine cover you want. You can use either a generic one, a decorated fictitious cover or a spoof of a real-life magazine, such as "Glamour," "Time," or "Life." There is a vast selection of covers from which to choose, so browse through the options before making a choice.

  4. 4

    Add text and headlines to your magazine cover. For example, if you do a fake "Glamour" cover, you can use the headline "This Year's Prettiest Girl" to go along with your photo.

  5. 5

    Adjust the colour scheme to your liking. You can preview the colours on the sample image that is next to the input form.

  6. 6

    Submit the information and photos to create your magazine cover image. Then, save the image onto your computer. If you forget to do this, you'll have to start over, because these sites will not save your information.
