I don't know what's happening to pretty soundtrack covers, but I'm finding myself making more and more myself.

Here are some of my best:






Although the best designs I have seen are easily by Luis M. Rojas. Record labels take note of his incredible work: http://soundtracklist.net/

Does anyone else enjoy making their own?

Here's a good place to start:

I love making custom covers, but the problem I always have is with the text. It always sort of "bleeds" into the rest of the image and gets fuzzy-like edges. It's never crisp and clear and stands out. As a result, most of my covers are little more than crops of alternate poster art, and for the time being I just print out an image-free rear insert with the track list simply typed in in a word processing program. How do you guys do it? (I have Photoshop 7, by the way, if there are any tips you can give.)

Photoshop is your friend.

I'm sure most everyone on here that does custom covers uses Photoshop, I know I do. In fact I taught myself how to use photoshop.

I do make custom covers but they're for unmentionables.

Using GIMP, I created custom covers for the Karate Kid 4 CD set since there were no individual covers. I also created custom covers for the FSM Superman set because that set also lacked individual covers. The links take you to images that are all 1000 x 1000.

Here are the Karate Kid covers:

Enjoy!

I embedded images for the first time today.

Here's how you do it:

Type the tag [ img ] (but remove the spaces). Paste your link, WITHOUT the http:/ at the beginning. Then immediately after, type [ /img ] (again removing spaces).

So it would look like (don't forget to remove the spaces)

[ img ]url.without.http://.at/the/beginning.jpg/[ /img ]

Make sense?

You are too kind, Peter. Really, mostly all I did was take an existing movie poster for The Village and add the words "Complete Original Score Composed By James Newton Howard" and "Featured Violinist Hilary Hahn". Seriously. With The Peacemaker, I just tweaked the latest DVD cover for the most part.

I do remember now having done a cover for Crimson Tide, but I can't access it at the moment. I'll try to post my covers here as I make them. The next ones will probably be for the DVD rips of Samuel Sim's "Emma" and "Gods and Generals."

Interesting post with a lot of talents!
I also make my own custom covers, using Photoshop CS5. Here are some samples:

Excellent work Antzstuff!

I think you could have done something useful for WRONGFULLY ACCUSED.
Intrada used the film poster but I don't see nothing wrong with some cosmetics.
Sometimes a captivating cover art can have a tangible impact on sales.

Thanks, Guternburg! It took some tinkering, but here goes:

Here's what your Karate Kid looks like:

< img >img408.imageshack.us/i/kk1dvd.jpg/< /img > (without space, of course)

Replace the "<" and ">" with "[" and "]".

Fixed! You're a champ! Turns out that I was also using the wrong code from imageshack. I'm an idiot! But, at least it is now working!

Okay, here are the Superman covers. I've put them as thumbnails, except for disc 7 because imageshack wouldn't generate a thumbnail for it (have no idea why).

No problem. You're not an idiot; it took me several tries and the wrong code to get it to work also. Turns out my problems were 1. I was using the wrong code and 2. I was trying to upload a .png file. Oh well. Glad it works now. : )
