KyThing - I really didn't like Enid Blyton, but thanks. :3

Shaun - I took my own photos for the Hamartia one as it was for coursework (DVD cover version, though) and everything had to be our own work. Alice's cover was made from google images (she gave me some images and key ideas from her novel and used Google to look for stuff that would fit together, then I added extra reflections with paintbrush in Gimp, for the buildings because it looked odd with miss-matched reflections) and the last one I painted and then just added the text in Gimp.

Alice - you is awesome <3

Eilidh - ooh, I like it - curious about the novel now.

Everyone seems to use Gimp.

I use Macromedia Fireworks.

I had GIMP on my parents' desktop, but I never really figured out how to use it, so I didn't bother putting it on my laptop. I got Photoshop, though. Then again, I don't really know how to use Photoshop either. I really should just take a minute to read about how to use either one... xD

This is awesome. I wish I were skilled at Photoshop to make some of my own covers.

Would you consider doing a book cover for someone you've hardly talked to?

I can pay you, uh... in critiques and thanks points?
