Anybody ever tried to design a book cover in Paint.NET? I would imagine the front cover for an eBook would probably be fine. But for a print edition, with specifically measured spine width, front and back covers, etc., might be a different story.

I have tried using the software but not for cover design. You should try using Adobe Photoshop.

Have downloaded and tried Paint.net but never felt comfortable with it.

While Photoshop is the industry standard-bearer, I continue to use an old copy I've had of PaintShopPro, version 7.04, I think, which actually suits most of my graphic design needs just fine. PS was always pricey at retail but now costs around $9 a month (perpetual subscription) so it seems cheap up-front, but over the years, could be more than buying it outright. The latest PSP version costs $80, no subscription required.

However, if you are looking for as close to a PS clone as you can get that is freeware, try GIMP.

I use Adobe Creative Suite for all my award-losing covers. There's a bit of a learning curve, as it's complicated, but once you learn how to use the software, you can do almost anything you need to with it.
