NEW - Album Cover Challenge #109

September 8th, 2019
I am truly shocked to have won round 108 as the other entries were awesome. Big thanks for hosting it @summerfield.

It is now my pleasure to be hosting Challenge 109. I'm looking forward to seeing your entries, 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 109 - 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:

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.

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: albumcoverchallenge109

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 109 begins today, Sunday 8 September and ends Saturday 21 September at midnight, GMT. Finalists will be chosen and posted on Sunday 22 September. Voting will be open until midnight Sunday 6 October, and the winner will be announced on Monday 7 October.
