Thanks, that makes sense. I'll make sure to go back and do that for the central images on my edits. Most of the covers are for other people's edits and none of them are on IFDB but I'll make sure the posts with them get updated.

I sincerely hope I didn't give anybody the impression I created this stuff from scratch. I'm just a freak about organization of my collection and so I make covers for stuff I have. I would just google image search until something strikes me and then design around that. I thought that was how most were done. Mine are pretty much cut and paste, match, blend, sort out the text and go. I only spend about 30 minutes to an hour because I'm just making something good enough for me. Then I figured I would post on the threads in case anyone else was a weirdo like me and just had to have a cover for an edit.

The tone of TM2YC's really made it sound like that's dishonest or deceptive, so I will make sure to be crystal clear about that in the future, or just keep the covers to myself if that's advisable. I didn't know that was a questionable habit; if it is, just let me know. I don't quite know what part of any of this is wrong, so just tell me and that'll be that.

I look at it just like fanediting. I'm not a very creative person but I like to take things other people make, tweak them, edit them, mix them up and then put it together. If anyone likes it, cool. If not, cool, I made it for me. Sorry for any misinterpretation on my part.

Neg, that's a good idea. I don't really take covers whole cloth like that, but I almost always use one central image on the front and I should credit that on my own edit covers.
