I need to create a book cover, and would like to know what are the possible ways to do that using Ubuntu or Debian packages -- but I'm not an expert in graphic design. So far I know of:
- LaTeX: it would possibly take too long to get all details right (choosing the right fonts, positioning elements, etc)
- Scribus: seems to not make common tasks easy (I couldn't easily find a way to centralize text in a frame, or a frame in a page for example)
- Gimp: a bit too complex maybe.
Are there any other packages that would make the task easier?
edit: it's my own book (self-publishing -- it's not for a publishing company). I'll probably want one or two images, the title and one or two lines of text.
