I am working on all 4 Kong covers at same time so there is consistency in layout design. The ratios of the artwork pieces do not fit cover without cropping top and/or bottom. So I chose to make a border on the sides. I still need to add actor names. On the back, I still need to add synopsis and bonus material and then decide what I want in background. Does look better than what I had before IMO.

As I was looking at other covers, I decided to change the back layout.

It’s getting there, I would try adjusting the colours of the names on the front and 2005 on the spine, something less eye catching - maybe white could work or one of the colours one the title.

I would also play with curves or levels to adjust the front image it’s very dull at the moment compared to the still on the back.

I changed the font color of actor names on front. I also adjusted brightness & contrast on front image. I am still on the fence regarding the film strips on sides. The more I look at it, the less I like. I need something bordering the sides and NOT top & bottom. Font color of year on spine changed as well.

Back is getting there. Still have to play around a bit. If I lighten up the background too much, it doesn't look right. But much better than what I started with!

It is coming along 8834.gif You should adjust the curves on that back image, so the blacks match the image on the front.

Fixed image. Missed the text there since it was black. LOL

Bazzah - what do you mean by "adjust the curves".

Curves or levels. You can adjust the image so the blacks are darker or lighter. Depending on what software you are using, of course 8834.gif

It’s getting better but I would try looking at other covers and see how they have done the backs on their covers and copy bits and pieces from them to make it your own.

The front cover has really been bugging me. When I started, it seemed like good idea and looked cool. But now hate it. So I was browsing some covers and saw the Godzilla covers done by falle and got me thinking of going that route since I couldn't fill the space without cropping a lot of the artwork.

I searched online and found some gorilla hair backgrounds. I made up 2 variations. One left the art intact and used the hair for side panels. The other I shrunk the art and framed it, leaving the title and actor names on outside.

As much as I hated to shrink the artwork that much, I really like it overall! I have not done any tweaking yet. Will plan on brightening up the title a bit and shrinking it down as well.

Let me know what you think about this direction for the front. Thanks!

Due to size, I am posting separately. Here is first one:
