I'm going to attempt to design a cover for my wife's book and I was wondering if someone could lead me in the best direction for program to use? I was thinking Photoshop, but being that I do not have one in my computer (Gateway / Windows 8.1) at the moment I am reaching out for recommendations.

Gimp is a free image manipulation program called "the poor man's Photoshop".

It is very popular and powerfull.

It has a bit of a learning curve, but if you are familiar with Photoshop, or Paintshop Pro, you will have no problem using it.

Gimp can be downloaded "free" at the link below.

I agree with GB2064, GIMP is a great choice. It can do everything photoshop can but it is free. I run it on windows 8 so it should run on 8.1 .
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB
