hello all, this is my 1st attempt at doing my own covers, i see we have scrubs season 1 here but not season 2, so i decided to try and make the 4 individual covers. what do u think? (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/chin.gif) (IMG:http://img335.imageshack.us/img335/5063/scrubsseason2oz4.jpg)

or without the actors names? (IMG:http://img193.imageshack.us/img193/2084/scrubsseason22ef6.jpg)

nice start considering its your first go (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif) just a few tips though, try not to cut Zach's head off on the spine, always feather the edge slightly on cutouts (that way you don't get the hard edges), the spec box is way too big and so are the logos.

How about putting the episode guide on something relevant, like a patients chart? or something hospital like?

I prefer the front without the names, but you may have to adjust how the title and pics are to fill in some of the gaps.

I like the colours (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif) .. as I said nice start ... brilliant series, keep going (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

The pictures have straight edges as if they've been cropped smaller that they need to be. Is there anything you can put in the picture to hide that?

I like the effect on the text, but the text itself is a bit big, I think. On the back anyway.

clipboard over the stethoscope in my opinion (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

but the writing on the paper isn't in the right perspective to the paper. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8824.gif)

ok shamoo (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif) I did PM cheffy but I'll put it on here (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8824.gif)

There are lots of different ways that people do this, and I am sure everyone has their own advice (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

The way I do it is, when I cut something out I use the pen tool to create a path around around the object (zoomed right in), then once the path is complete I right click and select *make selection* .. it then comes up with an option to feather...I usually do about 2px.

Or... if you use the wand tool or some other way, as long as it is on a seperate layer it is fine...just ctrl click the layer thumbnail image and it will select the object...with the select tool right click on the object and select *feather* again about 2px...this just takes the hard edges off.

Again..everyone does it differently but those are my ways of doing it (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8824.gif)

hope it helps (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

Looking good so far, the picture your using on the front, can you not resize it so the straight edge of the guy with his head on his hand is against the spine's edge

When you resize in photoshop keep the shift key depressed whilst re-sizing, or if you resize using the Image>Image Size (across the top, along the menus) - make sure that Scale Styles and Constrain Proportions are ticked.

I think the brighter picture is better.

Looks a lot better, you get a "better" feeling of it.. Since its a humor show, go for the lighter pic (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/thumb.gif)
