A bit of Fun and practice using Affinity to make an album cover. :)

 A bit of Fun and practice using Affinity to make an album cover. 1f642.png :)


Album Covers: Here are the rules:

1 - Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random” or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random

 

 The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

 

2 - Go to Quotations Page and select "random quotations" or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3

 
 The last four or five words of the very last quote on the page are the title of your album.

 

3 - Go to Rgbstock and click on “RANDOM” or click http://www.rgbstock.com/random

 
 The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

 

4 - Use Affinity Designer/Photo to put it all together and share your results.


I look forward to seeing your pictures. 1f642.png :)


Unbelievably my random wiki article was actually a music page 1f62e.png :o hence the band name "Ocean (B's song)" and my picture was a fisherman! Not so sure about the title though 1f642.png :)

From the Rgbstock Image License Agreement page:

 

2. You may use the Image:

2.a In digital format on websites, blogs, multimedia presentations, broadcast film or video and on your cell phone or personal computer as screen background or desktop wallpaper. 

 

2.b In print to decorate your home or your office.

 

2.c In printed materials such as magazines, newspapers, books, brochures, flyers, text books, wherein the image or images used are for the purpose of illustration and not the primary content for sale or redistribution of the printed materials.

 

2.a seems to cover the present use case. :)

OK, I'll play, too. I wasn't that pleased with the three random selections I got but I suppose it doesn't matter.

 

I thought I would include the CDs since not everyone can play vinyl these days. :rolleyes:

 

Fun idea Robchoc!
