    Default Anyone make their own album art?

    I'm OCD about my album art and if I don't like it, I make my own. Here's a recent. What are your thoughts compared to the original? I'm not sure. Would love some pointers from others who might make their own. Thanks.3149020938966-cover-zoom.jpegLEONORE II.jpg

    I prefer yours - you've used the image well and the text is in good proportion. My only quibble is with the main title - I'm not so keen on the stylised lettering although that is only my opinion. I do like the colour, though - it makes for a good contrast with the black background.

    Thanks. Yeah. I was playing around with different fonts. I appreciate the reply.

    I completely agree with elgars ghost. See if you can find a font typical of the period.

    One of the things I most dislike about the original is having the portrait of the conductor. I don't like them on most CD covers. For example, I won't buy any CD with Simon Rattle on the cover and if I want the recording I look for an alternative issue. Just a personal OCD.

    Much better, I saw member Granate doing it recently in another opera thread.
