free ebook cover creator

I have spent most of this afternoon looking for a decent (free) ebook cover creator - to no avail. I object to spending $35 - $100 for something I will probably use only very occasionally - also the software can't be THAT technical?
Anyone know of anything out there?

but some of it is very good, and to be frank, the old adage that you get nowt for nowt holds good here.

When you consider that a really professional-looking cover can work wonders in terms of attracting interest, an expenditure of £40 or so isn't exactly a fortune. I've yet to see a totally free product in this field that was any good at all.

Thanks - good advice (sometimes you don't know whether to fork out or just keep looking) do you recommend any one in particular?

Thanks for your continued help. I don't have photoshop so this would be an expensive option - any others you know of?

you run a Google search on 'ebook cover creator software'.

You'll get plenty of results, and you can look through them at your leisure.

GIMP is free software like Photoshop. It's as powerful as Photoshop, without the pricetag. (It's open-source.)

Once you download GIMP, go to:

...and get the tutorial on how to use GIMP to make the 3D covers, software boxes, etc. There's both a written tutorial as well as a set of video tutorials.
