Official Replacement DVD Cover & Case Thread - Part X

Any cover that is under 150dpi is not really fit for quality printing. So please use you own discretion before printing out any cover!

Feel free to post cover requests and links to other covers in this thread.

I've been having some problems priting covers. I tape the paper on the end of the sheet, and tell the printer it's legal size, and it still cuts off the same amount. I have three copies of the same DVD cover with the tiny bit missing! I'm going to have to figure out what to do with them!

I print with PSP, and I rotate the image 90 degrees first.

A few months ago I printed off some covers, doing the same thing (at least I think so...) and they all printed off fine.

Yes, beautiful color.

Now someone get to work on a Fifth Element cover like in the last thread

I'm thinking Sabastian, or someone else over seas because I belive that poster is Europian so a scan would be easy over there...

If someone can clean the scanner streaks I mentioned I was experiencing, I'd gladly scan them and mail them to whoever can clean and host them up.

If you can clean them, I'll just scan them and mail them your way.

As some of you here may know I had recently created a matching set of Halloween covers for the entire series....Since it's Halloween and I was bored I decided to tinker with a set just for the Michael Myers Halloween's.
I was wondering if you could give me your opinions on the work in progress.....Halloween 4 front custom DVD proto
Thanks,
Chris

In an effort to help folks who are posting requests for long lists of snapper conversions I thought I'd show what can be done with the program 'Photoshop Elements'. This is a very nice program with many of the features of the full 'Photoshop' program but with a much smaller price tag. The newest version (2.0) can be purchased for around $80 (recommended for XP users) and the older versions (1.0, 1.1) can be found on ebay for as little as $20 to $30.

Here are a few snapper conversions I did with 'Elements'. They are not simply scan and refit. Each has some custom elements that will be apparent if you have the originals to compare.
============
=============
============


I can't begin to tell you how much fun this is. I've had this program for about 6 weeks and already I've converted about 65 snappers. Not content with simple scan and resize I always go for a little extra. For example you'll notice all the dumb slogans are removed from the 'Ghoststory' cover. Most also need to be centered for proper display on a keepcase. Recently I started removing the UPC seal (god are they ugly) whenever possible, as can be seen on 'Ghoststory and 'The Swarm'. Think I'll go back and remove them all!

Of course thats my point! You can make all kinds of changes while at the same time eliminating the dred snapper. You can do this yourself and it doesn't have to cost a small fortune.

Here's the latest snapper on working on! I can't make a choice as to which version to use as the final. One thing is for sure the original is bad news.
Shrunken Heads!
============
The Monkey is the Star!
============
I think I,m leaning toward the blank (title only) version?

Damn is this fun! The choices are endless!

New Halloween Customs

Here's 2 front covers I've finished,. I'm not sure about 2 things...BLue or gray fog, and what type of numbers Roman or Regular...What do you guys think...I'm doing these for a friend...




The fog blends alot better at higher res, so you don't see all those waves on the finished one...
Thanks,
Chris

Hey Chris,

I'd go with the blue fog and the standard numerals look great with the title overlap. Nice job!

Thanks,
I'm really torn about the numbers though. On some of them it looks better with Roman type....But I do think the blue fog looks better....

Count me among those itching for the return of DVD Cover Art...

I've seen a few requests in this thread and previous versions of it of covers I either scanned myself or downloaded from dvdcoverart.com before it went down. I think someone requested Shawshank Redemption? I've got a First Strike (Jackie Chan) cover and insert that I sent to Matt shortly before the site closed. Others that I sent him at that time include US Marshals, Bait, Without Limits, and 2 Days in the Valley.

Since then, I've done a few others, including Digipack scans of Pulp Fiction CE and Jerry Maguire SE (single width spine for both).

Before DVD Cover Art went down, I had put in a request for a number of covers not listed on the site. Here is the list again, with a status explanation accompanying several of them, plus 2 new ones:

Anniversary Party
* Artificial Intelligence
* Bandits
Basket, The
* Brother
* Don't Say a Word
* Heist
Lantana
* Memento
Novocaine
* Nurse Betty
* Pi
* Shipping News, The
Up at the Villa

The ones marked with an asterisk (*) I was able to find low resolution scans at cdcovers.cc. I didn't expect much of them, but I was actually able to turn most of them into halfway decent covers by doing a lot of resolution conversion and resizing. The text is pretty blurry on the back, but except for a couple of them, they look pretty much like any other case on the shelf if you look at them from more than about 2 feet away... If anyone has a high res copy of any of those, I'd certainly rather the upgrade. If anyone is in need of something, I can send the converted low res version.

One thing I've started doing differently is making single width cover art 3200 pixels wide instead of the recommended 3240. I found the latter is too wide for any cases I've seen. The only reason I didn't notice it initially is that my printer was cutting off the far right edge of the cover and keeping it close to the right size, but I was having a heck of a time getting the spine centered on the case... I saw another site recommed 3215 wide, which would probably fit, but 3200 doesn't leave much width to spare. Anyone else notice this?

I think it was in Part IX of this thread that someone listed a nice Jurassic Park Trilogy custom cover. While I don't think I'll be going to a combined case for them, I did download it and tweak the text in the top red bar on the front cover to use the Jurassic Park font. If anyone's interested, I've got that variation of the cover and the free font (could easily email the font to anyone who wants it).

I think that's all for now.

Dan

p.s. johnf14, have you considered trying a combination of versions 1 and 2 for the Outbreak cover, having the human faces along side the monkey face with a transitional fade in between?

I'm in the process of doing a custom for Hollow Man, using the original poster art (the very simple "ghost"-ly image of Caine's face), but the new cover and spine don't match up well at all with the bright blue back of the standard cover. I considered just making it black & white, save for the studio logos, screen caps, and whatnot, but it still looks too busy when places along side the new cover. I'll probably end up making an entirely new back, but that's something I've never attempted before, so this might take a little while...

Actually, does anyone know if the thin, tall font:



that's used for the credit listings on DVD sleeves is available for download someplace? I can see it coming in handy.
