Album Cover Artwork
« on: September 12, 2006, 06:58:54 PM »
Hi everyone,

The recent release of iTunes 7 has finally encouraged me to compile my music collection along with the album art (I love being able to browse through my collection with "Cover Flow"!)

So for those who would like to participate, I was thinking we could provide each other the album covers for any of the the BF/BFF albums - even the unreleased ones that iTunes would never find automatically - I'm talking about the bootlegs, etc.  If you have a itch to express yourself artistically, why not create an album cover for one of the bootlegged shows, comprised of an image from the show, or something fitting.

I'm a bit busy with school right now, but I'm hoping that I'll get a chance to make a couple on the weekend.  Then I'll post them here.  Please provide a decent sized file, so image compression is minimal.

Also, just a note - I'm so glad that iTunes finally incorporated seamless play for those albums which are mixed together with each track!  \m/  nice work!

Reply with thoughts, comments, and artwork  ;)

Cheers,
-Dale

There must be some people still around with the press-quality EP covers? I remember they had them up on the site back when the EPs were released online, but I lost them when I formatted.

Here's the majority of the covers for the released songs!

I copied them directly out of my iTunes and then saved the .bmp as a .png so that file size was minimised without losing any detail.

Apologies for the pitiful size of the more obscure soundtracks/albums...if anyone has any better, SUCK IT.

Holy cow that must have taken a while! Although I have them, I just wanted to say thanks for the effort!

Yes, I must say thanks GromReaper!

Andy, you have the iTunes Originals?  My iTunes account is only valid with the Canada store, and it's the not same catalog as the US store.  Is there anyway you could share the originals with me?

Also, the audio from the Sessions DVD... I have the DVD, but it would be awesome to have the audio as well.  I still haven't purchased the WASO DVD, so I'll wait on that.  But if you're willing, I'd really appreciate it.  Just let me know.

Thanks,
Dale

Oh, and I've been busy, but I'll try and get some custom made covers online...

I've got them both I'll upload them for you. You can change the art that'll come straight with them. I kinda just apply random Ben pictures to non released CDs.

Itunes is downloading currently.
I'm going to make one for the Madison (3/11/06) bootleg that I was at. What a cool idea.
Here it is: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v202/Weasleyaholic/MadisonCoverArt.jpg

And here's the iTunes album to download.

If I had audio of the show I went to, I'd do the same.......*cries*
My new philosophy is that a crappy tape deck somewhere plays a greatest hits collection of strange and tender moments, lost, stranded, and forgotten. I'll meet you there.
