the score for AFTER HOURS was released as part of the Howard Shore Collector's Edition CD release a couple years back, Anyone want to take a stab in creating cool artwork for a CD? I believe their were 2 different US poster artwork versions out there.

Don't really like the cover art for John Carter, so here's one I just made. I tried to make a few with different images, but this was the only one I could really get to work.

Question...I've been working on a custon back cover insert for Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark, and I'm curious...how does one insert a CD bar code into the corner? I'm using a Windows Live paint system. I've gotten all of the neccesary text and track titles in there, now I just need to insert a bar code to make it look "legit".

EDIT: What I have so far...

Looks good. If I was doing a custom design, I'd feel one of the advantages of doing the design was NOT having to see an ugly barcode. Perhaps you should design yourself a personal logo that goes on
all your custom designs. That would be nicer and more "you" than a barcode.

Regardless, how does one insert a smaller image into a larger one? And what's the correct pixel size for printing this out so it will fit snugly into a jewel case?

Mr Jack, just looking at that image I can tell that you have the proportions wrong. It's too wide.

I doubt if you'll find many cover designers using Windows Paint. To do it properly you need something like Photoshop.

Hollywood and guns—look at the SCREAM 4 cover above and the two cops on the left with their guns drawn. The guy in the back is reaching between two people. And if he actually fired, where would the ejected casing go?

Right. And if a cliche might actually leap out of the trunk, necessitating the drawn weapons, crowding everyone around the back of the car is a great idea.

Do you know the proper dimensions (in pixels) to crop an image to before I get to work on it?

I thought i'd throw in my two cents and post my flickr account where i keep my soundtrack covers. I started mostly due to all the terrible commercial artwork out there. Anyways, hope you enjoy!

Has anyone made a high-rez alternate cover for "Seconds?" I truly think I would listen to that album more if it had a proper cover.

Hey Mr. Jack, you can use the sizes I use for my artwork, in the case of the back cover is 1782 x 1400 pixels, 300dpi for best printing results.

In case you're looking for DBAOTD custom art I suggest visit my site smile

So, if I print those out at those pixel dimensions, it will fit into a jewel case?

I use those all the time and printed fine, but at least you can give a try...

Did this one over the weekend; never liked the cover art for it and this combines 3 posters for the movie. Great way to get to know the score listening while working smile
