    Guitar Man CD Single Concept Cover

    Working on a CD Single Concept Cover for Guitar Man. Can't seem to get the right size for the front cover. Had to widen it to, which distorts it, makes it look too wide/fat.

    I need some design help with this and can use some RCA Logo's and how can I create barcodes for use on future Alternate/Concept cover art designs.

    Please Help!

    Thanks!

    Thanks Unchained & Tommy. A special thanks to ElvisFanSA.

    I've tried Unchained suggestion to go to the original source and re-insert the picture, but it always appears smaller than the CD cover template I'm using. What am I doing wrong? How can I increase the size so the whole image is visible within the template while maintaining the proper proportions of the picture itself?

    Thanks again everyone!

    Looking very good Barry

    Unchained is right, the first version looks like the pics are a bit "wider" than they ought to be. I've had problems getting pic sizes correct myself in the past

    I really like the concept of using those art styled photos. It's a style not seen very much, so it makes your work quite unique

    Keep it up...you're on the road to success

    Made a couple of changes.....Question, how can I add logos without having the white background showing behid them. Any spaces between/through letters/logo characters I what to have transparant so the main image shows through......Any tips, greatly appreciated.

    Still need to work on fitting the images in the CD Template at the correct size. While this latest version is not distorted, it's not as wide as it should be in relation to the CD Template that Unchained provided to everyone awhile ago. This to me, looks more rectangular that it should.

    Thanks!

    Used one of Unchained's disc labels as a template.....Unchained, I hope you don't mind, I can remove it if you have any objections.

    Thanks!
