Firstly I had to enlarge the image to make sure that the image was the right size, as
well as framing exactly what was needed in the image.
I then had to do the same thing with the image of Kieran. After this I had to split the
picture in the middle to give the two halves of their face effect, as well as making sure
their features lined up as well as possible.
To make both images black and white, I had to use the ‘Image Adjustments’ option,
and decrease the saturation level to -100 to get rid of all colour.
To make the microphone be in full colour whilst the rest of the image was black and white, I
first had to crop all around the whole of the mic. Then, I cropped it into two sections down
the centre line of the page so that there was a mic placed in front of Ellies face as well as
Kieran. After this I changed the colour saturation to 0 to balance the colours.
After this I lined up both halves of the mic and grouped them together. I then brought
back the image of Ellie, and lay the colour mic in front of the split image of both Ellie
and Kieran’s faces.
Next I did a similar thing with the eyes of both Ellie and Kieran. I cropped around the
eye, and put the saturation level to 0 making it in colour, and different to the rest of
the face. I did this to both eyes on the cover.
I added the text next, typing the artist name and album title in separately, and
changing the effects on both, giving it a drop shadow, white fill and black outline. I did
this for both the ‘Panda Police’ text, as well as the name of the album ‘Still Alive’.
After adding in both pieces of text, I thought that the band name needed to be more
bold, as well as the cover needing another house colour. So I changed the Panda Police
line of the text to blue, as well as making it bigger and moving ‘Police’ slightly to the
right to give it a more edgy feel.
