All the templates have a GIMP format, but the cover art template.  That's only offered as .png.  Is there a reason for this?  The .png even says on it something like - remember to delete this layer.  But with a png file there's no layer to delete.

It would be easier for me if this template was offered as a GIMP file, just like the other templates.

I would also find a GIMP template to be easier.  However, for now you can:

  1. Create an image with an 801x301 pixel canvas.  (When proofing my cover art, I found out those extra pixels the PNG provides are important despite the 800x300 stated.)
  2. Go to File->Open as Layers and choose the PNG file.

Granted, I'm using version 2.63, but I think this should still apply.
