Every week we give a new prompt, and participants go wild, using all their creativity, and producing fabulous covers far better than the original ones used by publishers.
Welcome to last week’s Wrap up and to the new challenge.
This was last week’s theme:
And now you will see the stunning covers made by the participants. We’ve included the links to their blogs, so that you can visit them to learn how they work and which techniques and apps they use. Go and visit!
Every week we see that they are bringing their covers to even higher levels of creativity, and that is fantastic.
Thank you all for joining in and making this challenge so much fun and original! We love what you do!
And the stage is theirs:
Debbie from Deb’s World uses a photo from visit to her parents’s house and gives it a complete makeover with the app Pixlr. She, and I, very much like the washed out look of the photo. Fabulous.
Disperser has decided to go all the way this week and worked like a Michelin Chef in the Kitchen of photo processing. You must visit his blog to learn how he made this cover, because all you see was “painted” there! Breathtaking.
Geert from WitcWithaView made the composition in Photoshop CC 2015 and edited the picture in Indesign CC 2015. The cover is made out of three pictures. The font used is Minion Pro Italic. Fantastic result, isn’t it? I’m also adding his stunning cover for last week’s challenge.
Julie from Julie Powell: Photographer & Graphic Artist, cropped a photo from a trip to Porto Douglas and added a pint daub artistic filter to soften a touch. Then placed a 75% opaque black box over 90% base image on new layer, added a drop shadow. All done in Photoshop! Julie never disappoints and brings absolutely gorgeous covers.
Next is Sabina and Toby from Library of Cats. Toby searched for images to make the cover until images from Jamaica and a plane of 1953, got a very creative treat with the help of the PickMonkey app. Et voilà, here we have an amazing cover.
Sarah from First Night Design is a pro! She made this cover in just half an hour! Impressive and stunning.
So, ready to go for the next challenge?
Here is how it works.
- Every Thursday we will give you the name of a book, music or movie, etc. and share with you our take on a new cover.
- You will prepare you own cover by using your archive photos or shooting a new one to go with the theme.
- Prepare your post and publish it. Remember to Ping Back (hyperlink) to this post. You may also copy your link to the comments section of this post.
- Use the tag #PhotoRehabCoverMakeover, so that we can find your post in the WP reader.
- Add your photo to the link provided below. In this way, you expose your photo to the other participants and the audience of the Photo Rehab.
- If you wish, you can add to your post the badge we made for the challenge (below).
- We will make a weekly wrap up of all the ingenious cover makeovers photos!
Every Thursday at 12:15 am CET you will find here the combined post. Immediately after that, every Thursday at 12:30 am CET, you will see the post with our version of the cover, which either Desley or I will create.
Isn’t this a cool challenge?!
This week we go for Julie Powell’s suggestion: Pink Floyd
You can do both albums or one of them:
Dark Side of the Moon
The Dark Side of the Moon is the eighth studio album by the English progressive rock band Pink Floyd, released on 1 March 1973.
The Division Bell is the fourteenth studio album by English progressive rock group Pink Floyd. It was released in the UK by EMI Records on 28 March 1994, and the US by Columbia Records on 4 April.
I have to apologize but this week I won’t make our version of the challenge. I’m a bit ill today and my creative juices have dried out. I’m also running behind two assignments of the Writing201 course on Poetry. Oops!
So, have fun and and go for it.
