    Are you talking about ones like this? http://www.artworld.si/blending_your...torial-243.art

    It's a tutorial for making your own album art.

    Hey ho! I found this topic through Google!

    I actually wanted to learn how to make mixtape/cd covers, like these:














    Like, what's needed, what do they use ? I used to work with photoshop a couple of years ago and I was pretty good at it - wallpapers, headers, signatures etc.

    Today I'm a fulltime linux user and I wanted to try making covers with GIMP. Any tips ?

    I tried googling but didnt find a decent one. But I'm not looking for a tutorial on "how to make a mixtape cover". I want to know what elements, which effects etc are being used so I can master it in different types of art.

    There is no specific template to a cd cover, the examples shown are done compositing a bunch of pics together and balancing them to fit together. Most of the work is done looking for your images, there are plenty of stock photo websites, and searching google images can also help if you dedicate your search to only extra large images. There is no way I could break down how every cover was done, would take way too long. If there is one you like in particular I can break it down for you.

    if you're lookin to print it I can finda template for you(same one I used when I made a mixtape cover)The cover I made was more like an album cover though..
    but if you want a cover like that you need to be good at photoshop basics first
    but if you got high quality pictures it should pretty simple, I could make a tut but I don't know if I have time

    Also to da dude that raps, if you ever need beats hit me up at www.myspace.com/nobodyfamousbeats
    we can talk pricing on there
