That makes two of us. I would like to know what it takes, meaning software and hardware to produce covers and labels? I am sure that it is more of a concern as to which software is needed to accomplish this. I don't believe that I have a current version of PhotoShop. Think I own version 6, and I am sure that it is quite out of date, correct me if I am wrong.

Please help, would like to know more about what is needed to get started. Thank you!

I've seen some near decent efforts made in Paint so any graphics program could do but Paint Shop Pro/PS Elements or PS itself are what nearly most use.

But more important than the program is the patience of the user to learn how to use it like the tutorials here and elsewhere.

Unfortunately the difference between good and the really great covers is creativity and that is not something that can be bought or learned.

Go to Skally's schoolyard he has a tutorial on how to get started with covers. That should be a great help to get you going.
