I've just downloaded the latest version for windows and have the tutorial section bookmarked. However, I have to admit that learning new software is far from my strong suit - I've had LibreOffice for several years and still learn something new every day.

Thanks, as I replied to your PM, I'm simply trying to make ebook and paperback covers for my three historical novels.

My problem is that I really don't have enough artistic sense to know what works.

I was thinking of doing something along this line - top half =

With bottom half =

With

The Sailor in the top section
and The Carpenter in the bottom with my name at the bottom.

Something simple to catch the eye.

The other alternative is to show sailing ship cordage on top and 18th century carpenter tools on the bottom.
