DIY Covers

I work with GIMP, so many of the tutorials I link to will be about GIMP.

Tutorials:

This tutorial from Aubrey Watts covers the bare bones of making a cover in GIMP, and goes over the very important concept of layers.

And here’s a giant honking passel of tutorials.

Design:

From Popular Soda, the basics.

From Skye Warren, three things to keep in mind when making your cover.

Note: Readable text is on both of these lists.

Examples:

From Popular Soda.

From Amber Lin.

Resources:
