December 2023 Photo Challenge

This month I challenge you to come up with an album cover (oh dear, did I just date myself???? Lol). Should be square format. Does not have to have an Airstream in it, but somehow relate back of course. Dont forget to name the album!

I used an app to get the text on the photo. Not necessary, I just liked how it looked. The picture was taken at Hither Hills SP in Montauk, NY. My imaginary singer/songwriter was inspired by Wally’s quote to find out whats over the next hill… and the next one after that!

Hmmmmm awfully quiet in here. Maybe I made it too restrictive? Its my first time at this. How about any square image will do! But do name it! I hope that helps because I love seeing all your photos!!

What a cool idea! Let me snoop around in the collection to see if there isn't something to include.

Ok, a couple of pics. Something about flying, I guess. (Sandhill cranes.)

I did it using PowerPoint and moving things around. No high tech art programs used here nor any trained artist/photographer but it was fun. Great contest theme!

P.S. I was given a BIC 980 turntable which I plan to connect to my Polk 5Jr+ from the mid 80’s and then connect to our Sonos system with a Connect Amp. I have a nice collection of albums (records/vinyl recordings).

@SteveNdebbie,

Yep, Powerpoint can do a great job with a simple artwork project. As you found, simply copy image into ppt, edit using built in tools, save as .jpeg, then edit the size of the .jpeg using the standard .jpeg editor. Been doing it for years and is how I did mine as well.

Now others will know how easy it is, and maybe more photos will be posted.

Enjoy,

How do you do it for those of us who don’t have power point. I googled for my Iphone and Windows 11 and can’t find a built in program to add text to the picture.

Omg you guys are blowing me away!!!! I would totally buy these even if there was only one good song on them!

Again the text was NOT necessary. But if you are so inclined…. On an iphone, click Edit at the top of the photo, then the pencil point at the top, then at the bottom to the right of all the tools, theres a plus sign. That brings up Add Text. But dont go crazy! I dont want anyone getting frustrated! You can just tell us the name too!

For Windows XP through Windows 11 you can use Paint (a built in program from Microsoft).

Thanks everyone, I finally figured out how to somewhat get the text in. I have 1 Airstream related album cover and 1 non-Airstream (however we were camping in our Airstream) . One of our RV entrance mats says, "Adventure Awaits". This recent sunrise at Cape Hatteras reminded me that at the beginning of each day you never know what that day has in store for you.

The second is from the South Kaibab Trail in the Grand Canyon. Our favorite hike, that we can no longer do, is the hike to Phantom Ranch at the bottom of the canyon. One of our favorite views is from Cedar Ridge. It's only 1.5 miles to this point and I thought Tom Petty's song describes it perfectly.

BTW: If you google "album cover creator" one of the top returns is a free version of Adobe Express which worked well for me. I hope that Tim O’Brien's lawyers (one of the founding members of Hot Rize) don't come after me. If they do, I'll use my real Hot Rize LP's that I've had for many years in my defense.

Fun one... a clever theme. Here's one -- UWAC is acronym for Utah's Wasatch Airstream Club (Utah affiliate of WBCCI/ACI), our go-to camping friends.
