Just wondering about why you are using XCF format for the "editable"
files?  I know it is the default for GIMP, but some people on this
might not know that.
They can ask.. actually, I should of used Inkscape, or so I feel, but
I'm not nearly as proficient (let alone efficient) with Inscape as I am
with GIMP and that is really the only solid reason.

I spent years and years using Paint Shop Pro 5 [do not like the newer version much] and Corel Draw [4 to 12] on Windows. There are still a lot of "filters", and options, I need for GIMP to do some of the things I am used to with Paint Shop Pro 5. I started using it about a year ago and still not as good as I want to be with GIMP. I have been using Inkscape for about 2 or 3 years. The thing I do with the cover file is embed it into an Inkscape file to format it the actual print size for the cover. Then print the Inkscape file instead of resizing the image during the printing through GIMP.

I use to use JPG over PNG for most all my images. GIF for transparency issues/needs. But it seems that I am dealing with PNG a lot these days.
