Yeah, that's a lot better  ;)


You'll need to tweek it a bit more, the edit only covers two episodes, you're best just using the bottom description and remove the top half entirely.

I always recommend starting a cover from scratch. Trying to modify a scanned cover always results in lots of problems, and especially issues with halftone and moiré patterns.

Try to find posters or screencaps of those images and start from a fresh template. And please, for the love of all things holy and unholy, omit those giant, horrid UK ratings.

Much improved. A couple comments:

  • The edit title on the front and spine is incredibly blurry
  • Drop the barcode, the copyright text and the copy protection elements from the bottom left corner. They are irrelevant to this edit.

Great work, but, again, there's only TWO episodes being used in this edit, not THREE, so you'll have to alter the text to say "a brand new feature-length reedit of two cases"

Not bad at all! Very simple, and I like that. :)

I'm wondering what size/type you're going for. Correct me if I'm mistaken, but that doesn't look like either DVD or Blu-Ray. 

But overall, loving the look! ;)

That KR one is definitely DVD sized when you see the full version. :)

Thanks for the comments

I love the layout and front cover!

Of the two, I like the second one much better.

For the rear, why not just put your text on top of the blue cosmic imagery instead of inside a box?  Or does it become too difficult to read?

Yeah, I was'nt sure if the text would be easy to read using just the imagery. I could give it a go though, it was more the fear it would look messy that compelled me to use the box.

Thanks for your feedback :)
