    Random albumart fun thread!

    Here's the deal:

    Here are the rules:

    1) Go to Wikipedia and press “random” or click here. The title from the first wikipedia page you'll find is the name of your band.
    2) Go to random quotations or click here. The last 4 or 5 words in the last quote on the page are the albums title.
    3) Go to Flickr and press “explore the last seven days” or click here. The third picture, whatever it shows, will be the album cover. Print screen and cut the picture in paint with your mad, MAD paintskillz! (as it won't save directly from flickr?)
    4) Start Photoshop (or online foto-editor pixlr.com) and create the albumart for you band's album by mixing the results from steps 1 - 3 (use 400x400 px)
    5) Upload your result (f.ex. use imageshack.us)
    6) post it in this thread!

    Here's mine:

    Sounds cool, I'm gonna go ahead and do it this weekend ^^



    Tbh I was pretty clue less as to what to make, I normally do abstract things from nothing, and having a picture I actually had to use was hard lol.

    More like, I didn't have illustrator, so the title was made in photoshop as well, and hell I've never done that before
    It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

    Kinda wierd tbh, I don't see why you can't.
    I tryed it out my self, left clicking it and then "show image" for some reason shows another image than the one chosen, Like wise pushing save image also trys to download the wrong one..

    Anyway, seing as I'm missing a few addons for my browser on this PC, I did it another way

    As a standard in firefox you can mark the text or in this case picture, left click it, and in the bottom there should be a "View Selection Source", by doing this you can see the code for image location. Just go to that url and you can save it normally

    I did it for ages and didn't get any art...

    "Fancy Pants is a 1983 studio album by Count Basie and his orchestra. This is the last recording that Basie made with his big band."

    I got this though.

    What a very cool thread!
