Production of the CD Cover The first stage was to get the correct dimension for a CD Cover. I then opened up the Magazine Advert to ensure I had the right colour I used on there.
Production of the CD Cover I then cut out the picture using the ‘magnetic lasso tool’. This is done to ensure the picture can be placed on different layers for example without the background of the picture showing.
Production of the CD Cover Once I was able to drag the picture onto the correct sized CD cover.
Production of the CD Cover I duplicated the layer in order to get the same sized image. I then made the picture black and white by simply clicking on the ‘image’ tab clicking on ‘mode’ then ‘greyscale’. Once the picture was black and white I used the brushes which I used on the magazine advert and was able to create a slight ‘torn’ effect on her face to reinforce the name of the album.
Production of the CD Cover I then duplicated the layer previously which allowed me to have a third layer of the same image. Here I lightened the image and again used the brushes to create a ‘torn’ effect, this time more then the picture previously.
Production of the CD Cover I repeated the process previously for the fourth time. However, this time lightening the picture further.
Production of the CD Cover I repeated the process previously for the fifth and final time. However, this time lightening the picture further.
Production of the CD Cover Like on the magazine advert, I decided to use the font ‘Monotype Corsiva’ for the artists name ‘Amy Piner’. This font stands out and its clear to read. I also added a drop shadow to ensure the name stands out .
Production of the CD Cover Like on the magazine advert I decided to use the font ‘Trash’ For the album name ‘TORN’. This font is clear to read and reinforces the album name because of the torn effect on the edging.
Production of the CD Cover At the bottom of the CD Cover I decided to add the logo of the record label as this is conventional.
