I use GIMP here, but close enough.

I just took a quick look through their website. The first thing that amused me was the paucity of book covers actually visible on the main page. I did eventually find a gallery of templates - both photoshop and for the software itself. I guess templates would make production of print book covers easier - I don't know how that is usually managed for print-on-demand books - but I saw nothing there that would make the software appealing for ebook covers (or not at that price anyway).

If you can't do it in GIMP, you probably can't do it by yourself.

Having said that, I just found THIS site:

http://www.myecovermaker.com/ecover-design

Interesting. Also this but haven't looked as hard at it.

The drinks I had in mind are only taken in a cup if it's before noon and you have a sense of shame.

Don't buy BookCoverPro! There is no tech-support and your problems will be totally ignored. The worst 200 dollars I ever spent.
