What program can be used to make book covers (digital and print)?


Question

I'm looking to start making book covers for myself and a few friends, and I am wondering what software to use. I have Photoshop and GIMP for the manipulation aspect, but what about the rest?

There are many applications that can do this. I have explained two options that you may consider:

(1) Paid Applications: (from Adobe)
a. Photoshop - Image manipulation
b. Illustrator - Vector Graphics
c. Indesign - Layout your cover page/book exactly for Print & Publishing

(2) Free Applications: (Open Source)
a. GIMP - Image manipulation
b. Inkscape - Vector Graphics
c. Scribus - Layout your cover page/book exactly for Print & Publishing

A good cover/book design is an outcome of effective use of above three tools. Hope this helps you.
