Adobe Photoshop is fantastic for covers work and other photo stuff. I use CS2 but there is a newer CS3 out now.

CS2 or CS3 will do very well.
I use Photoshop to do the Photographic parts and al the other designing i will do in Indesign.
SO when you get your pix ok in Photoshop, you can place them in indesign, put all elements in and put your text in.

Than when you export it, you should make a PDF file of it, as the text will be sharp as can be.

When you export to jpeg or another photographic format, it will pixel all of your image including your text. Especially for small text, thats not to good.

CD Labelmaker 2.0 is what I use. All I have to do is load cover as background and it size it up for you so all you have to do is print. Then cut it out and finish. :P

Takes about 2 minutes at most to load, print, cut and put into DVD case.
