    There's an iPhone app called 'TAD' (Thumbnail Art Design).

    Burtsbluesboxes : Thu 10th Dec 2015 : 5 years ago This site has free pictures to use and abuse any way you see fit under the only condition you alter the original by adding something.

    A good program to download as well (Don't have exact name of program) is one that can resize a photo and album art as most websites have a standard pixel size.

    That site you mention has some nice photography on it.

    Great stuff for free use. Could be effective starting point for twisting up and modifying in Photoshop or similar, not that I've done that much in the last 10 years.

    Dude, for real!
    I got some cash burnin' a hole in my pocket for a the debut LP right now.

    Sorry TC, don't mean to jack the thread here but I've been after Static for a few years now (at least it seems like it)to make some of his stuff available. Guess im gonna have to track him down an beat it outta him! Anybody know where he lives? I'm gonna show up on his doorstep one of these days !! (Hey bro don't laugh, I may do it !):)

    Of course I'm kidding here.
    Or am I?????
    HA HA, you better get busy man.

    OK TC, I have a hard time considering album art using an iPhone app. I will stick with Photoshop or Illustrator.

    You can jack this thread as much as you want. I don't mind.
    I posted this for anyone that was interested. If you're not interested, that's fine.

    I got the app for experimental purposes (future album ideas, etc.). Believe it or not, I use Microsoft Word and the editing functions in Mac OS X Preview to make my albums. My signature E was made this way.

    Album artwork is a subject that continually pops up in the Forum. I checked out your link and this app really is pretty cool. It is however limited to Apple iphone /ipad. It was offered for free for a limited time which ended Dec. 14th. Not sure what the cost will be to purchase, but if your looking for a pretty quick way of adding some text and simple graphic effects to a picture for album art, forum avatar etc. its worth a look see.
    This is a nice find TC, especially for those with limited artistic skills who don't want to pay for artwork.

    "I've been after Static for a few years now (at least it seems like it)to make some of his stuff available"

    It's probably only about two, so a bit less than a few.

    Yes, take a plane flight to London (England) and bring The Dirty Sloebro with you as well a couple of you Americans' favourite toys - guns. Then you can force me at gunpoint to assemble an album or ten for you to take back home with you.

    We can call the blues one something like Gunpoint Blues.

    Would be nice to meet the pair of you, in spite of the gun in my face circumstances.

    HAHA, been wondering how you would respond to my bogus threat of physical violence. I'm really a pacifist for the most part, so your pretty safe. Although I would love a good reason to make a trip across the pond. England is one of the places I would like to visit someday. All kidding aside though, you must know besides myself, many here would in fact also like to get their hands on some of your tracks. With this thread I think I have actually risked being banned to get you to make some StaticNomad available to your fan base. I will even go one step further and offer my artistic services to you if you so desire, to collaborate on and create any type of artwork you desire for album cover, promotional content, vector graphic T-shirt design ... whatever you want - totally free of charge. My only request is to include that new metal track you posted recently, which I haven't had time to comment on yet but totally dig !
    So, no more excuses bro, its time (long over due) for you to go public. And hey, since the new Star Wars movie is now out, you don't even have to worry about competing for media attention!

    Hey, thanks very much for the offer, which I'm seriously considering taking you up on.

    In a way, we aren't totally hijacking this thread as it's about getting album art made and I'm someone who has a bit of a problem with that. You're offering to help me out so that seems relevant.

    I guess the next step is for me to see some of the (album) art you can make. I only need a couple of images per album (front and back cover).

    You've inspired me to get back into the album compiling and I've been busily going through my mass of tracks over the last day (and also remixing/updating/improving them).

    I'm grouping them roughly by genre and I think I've got enough for around 14 albums. I have quite a bit more material than that but I'm not happy with those tracks or they're unfinished or whatever.

    "include that new metal track you posted recently"

    If you mean Chasm

    then yes that will be on my heavy album, along with tracks like Valvedriven and The Bigger The Fatter The Better.

    "since the new Star Wars movie is now out, you don't even have to worry about competing for media attention!"

    I expect anything I release to be noticed by only a few people (10-15?) who know me through this site and a few people I know personally. If anyone else were to take any notice whatsoever I'd be both pleased and surprised. I guess someone needs to feature it on their psychedelic/far out music blog or something.

    Thanks again and I'll send you a PM about the album artwork. I'm not planning to release 14 albums at the same time but perhaps one every couple of months or so. Or maybe I should wait till I'm 70 years old and release 50 or so all at the same time.

    Use pixlr Express to really make any free to use picture yours as you can do lots of cool laying...profile pic is a good example using 3 separate free to use images.
