Creating my own cover image w/title & author embedded -- PDF? or JPG?

I've seen recommendations around here that we should create our own cover art, rather than just relying on the cover wizard, and that's what I'm doing.... I'm zeroing in on something I'm very happy with (Creating an image that fills the whole 6x9" template Lulu provides, with the title and my name embedded as part of the design).

 

I get the best, clearest, results by converting it to .PDF (at 600 dpi). But I can't tell, through reading the  instructions to how to use the Cover Wizard, whether I can upload this as the cover image in a PDF format. 

 

Will I have to print it out and scan it as a .Jpg?

 

I'd like to know before I spend several more hours/days of work getting it just right.
