Depending on your needs consider also Inkscape, Gimp, Krita, and of 
course for typesetting the various forms of TeX. All but Gimp will 
handle CMYK. 

I am having some fun doing a cover for an e-book using various tools. 
Thus far I have two TeX versions (quite different), a Gimp version 
and an Inkscape version.  I'll work on a Scribus version next.   See: 

Which cover does the list prefer? I'll try to duplicate it in Scribus.

The four covers were done using three different tools: 
1. Tex (context), 
2, Gimp, and 
3. Inkscape.  

Who can match covers 1 through 4 with the correct tool?
