Do not want to throw a spanner in the works, but are you planning on using that
wizbit to print the covers?
If so, read the small print.
Please leave the colour schemes as CMYK and the resolution as 300dpi.
The 300 dpi is no problem. (great; they quote the size in mm then use dpi) you
need an image 3000x1464. Note there is a small 'bleed' margin in those sizes.

You will be comming back asking how to get CMYK, Gimp is a RGB editor and the
separate+ plugin is no substitute for starting off an image in CMYK mode.

Even if you do not use wizbit most commercial printers have similar

Thanks for your feedback. I'm not planning to use wizbit.
Uh how to get CMYK? Is there an other opensource tool which can handle that, inkscape for instance? Could I otherwise export from Gimp to Photoshop and export in photoshop to a CMYK printable file?
There should be some 'workarounds' possible right?
