re: [Solved] Best Free Ebook Cover Creator That's Easy To Use?

That's a pretty smart idea.

But other than this, yeah, either GIMP or find a good Fiverr gig. Look at the art that people provide as examples, or the reviews on their work.

Re: Adsense banned me

Yep. Or Media.net, Buysellads, clickbank ads, sign up for a GPT like Cashcrate and put an affiliate linked banner up, etc etc. the possibilities stretch way beyond Google.
