Album Cover Challenge131...come and play!

November 22nd, 2021
Thanks to Ann(@olivetreeann) for hosting the last album challeng and to all the voters for choosing my album.

So now, it's time to get started on Album Cover Challenge 131.

The rules for how to do this are below:

1. Go to the Wikipedia website. The title of the “Article of the Day” is the name of your artist.

2. For your album title, go to and choose "random quotes" from the left menu. Scroll down to the end of the page. The last 4 to 6 words of any of the three last quotes on the page is the title of your album, whichever you think would go with your band or artist.

3. Next, find or take a photo (photos) of yours that fits the album name and artist(s). You can use one single shot or edit with layers, and so on. The processing options are limitless. Don’t forget to crop your album cover in a square format!

4. Use your favorite editing program to create your cover. You can use any image of yours for the album, old or new, but you must use your own images and do all your processing for the cover during the time frame of the challenge.

5. You can enter multiple times but only one album will be chosen per photographer.

6. Tag your entries: albumcoverchallenge131

In addition to tagging your image, you can post your album to this thread, too. It’s always fun to see what others are coming up with!

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 arrow below your picture.
3) Find the 'Embed Code' box and right click on it to copy it, then paste it to this thread.

Challenge 131 begins November 23, 2021 and ends at midnight (any time zone) December 22, 2021. Finalists will be chosen thereafter and voting will be posted then, with the winner being announced after the vote is completed. Since this challenge will run into the holiday season I will probably leave voting open until after Christmas, with the next challenge to start in the new year.

To view submissions from previous challenges, search for album cover challenge, or click on this link to see entries to the last challenge -

Since participation has been low for the last couple of album challenges, I'm going to suggest that, if the first selection of artist title and album title are too out there for you to work with, try one more time for another combination.

This can be a fun challenge, with lots of processing/editing options open for you and, working with a square format can be fun for a change. I hope we'll get some enthusiastic participation.

If you need some inspiration you can check out this link, just to get you started.

Good luck and have fun!
