Album Cover Challenge 105

June 11th, 2019
Hello 365ers

Thank you so much for voting for my album cover last time, and many thanks for hosting it @shannejw Congratulations to all the finalists and the newbies like me, who gave it a try for the first time. I could never have hoped to win a challenge so soon, but it just goes to show how much I have learned from you guys.

I'm looking forward to seeing your entries for Challenge 105, and it would be great to see even more people joining in this time! Remember...multiple entries are encouraged!

So, it's time for Album Cover Challenge 105 - instructions below...

If you are new to 365 or to this challenge, the album cover challenge is an excellent opportunity to use those photos lurking in the archives and to edit to your heart’s content!

Here's how to get the information for your album cover:

1. Go to Wikipedia and choose the link for "Random Article" on the top left side of the page. The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your musician(s) or band.

2. Go to Quotations Page and choose "Random Quotes" from the left menus. Scroll down to the end of the page. The last 4 to 6 words of the very last quote on the page are the title of your album.

3. Next, find or take a photo of yours that fits the album name and artist(s). Album covers are square, so don't forget to crop it.

4. Then, use your favorite editing program to create your cover (or, if you don't have one, Ace members have free access to -- and there are many other free programs out there). You can use any image of yours for the album, old or new, but you must use your own images and do all processing for the cover during the time frame of the challenge.

5. You can enter multiple times.

6. Tag your entries: albumcoverchallenge105

In addition to tagging your image, please post your album to this thread, too. It helps keep this thread active and inspires others when they see the creativity out there! That means it will show up on the discussion lists to the right of the home page. It also helps bring in more participants!

To post a photo on this thread:
1) Go to your page that has the photo you would like to post.
2) Click on the three dots (...) just below the bottom right of your picture.
3) Find the 'Embed Code' box and right click on it to copy it, then paste it to this thread.

Challenge 105 begins today, Tuesday 11 June and ends Monday 24th June at midnight, GMT. Finalists will be chosen and posted on Tuesday 25th June. Voting will be open until Thursday 27th June, and the winner will be announced on 28th of June.

Don't like you

If you ever start to feel too good about yourself, they have this thing called the Internet, and you can find a lot of people there who don't like you.

Hi all, thank you for the entries already received. Amazing! Just bumping this challenge up a bit as we could do with a few more entries.

Another bump for one of my favorite challenges. Looks like there's still only a handful of entries, and only a handful of days left.

I always enjoy seeing people's creativity with this, and there's quite a few folk who have participated in the past who haven't shown up yet.

Here's hoping people get inspired!
