Cookbook Design Programs

There is a lot of graphics work that can happen when designing a cookbook and touching up photographs. Depending on your preferences there are many different options you can turn to.

Photoshop and Fireworks are great choices for page design and cover design, as is InDesign and Illustrator. Many people also make simpler covers in MS Word. There are many free tools available as well such as InkScape or GIMP.

Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Lightroom are the top two photo editing programs. These programs, especially Photoshop, used to be very expensive but they are now available as a subscription for only $10 to $20 a month, less than most web hosting. If you are serious about producing high quality work then their ability to transform your photographs is worth the monthly investment.
