I know what you mean. Sometimes I can't connect to ImageShack even to view, let alone upload!

BTW, did you get the go-ahead from RCK?

Don't worry, Sensi. The final versions will be single colours. That one was just an experiment.

Good idea with the different colours. As I can see it now we already need 20 content lists, so you better hurry prowler

Not a word yet! and the message I sent him is still unconfirmed I already know RCK is a very busy man and he absconds from EAB sometimes for very long periods He will respond, I know he will. We just have to give him the time along with us to be patient

When he sees what you've created, how could he say no?

True

At the moment the image has 55 different layers which create the full image and until I get the go ahead from RCK, I can't merge them down to the minimum 11 layers that are required to create all the CD covers. The current file size is nearly 60Mb but when in Photoshop it's using considerably more and is causing a few glitches with my system. Photoshop can be memory hungry at times, especially when you have tonnes of layers

@All
What format should I save them as, .PNG (4.18Mb) against .JPG (3.40Mb) both @ 3189 x 2185. Obviously .PNG being the favourite, I just wanted to know what you guys thought as some DVD cover programs don't support .PNG.

Of course I will crop them to a more realistic size for printing when I save them in one of the above formats.

Lossless = PNG If someone needs it in JPG format he can convert it later.

Bad News!

I've got a bit of bad news, Photoshop crashed before whilst saving the main .PSD file I can't access it at the moment, it's saying it's an invalid file format.

Now, if my memory serves me right, I should be able to find it again somewhere in the temp folder as it should still be there as Photoshop didn't close properly.

Wish me luck

It should be in the folder where you tried to save it with a 'tmp' extension. Fingers crossed And make daily backups from now on

Sorry TCD but it's not there

Got it Phew! It was stored in 'Documents and Settings\ME\Local Settings\Temp' Ooooh! I'm clever , I think

Thank heavens I never restarted Photoshop 'cause the restart would of wiped off the old Photoshop.temp files. I'm glad I do things in a logical way, sometimes

I have now created a manual backup of the file and I will do this from now on with files of that size + qty of layers, that put a strain on my poor peecee

Edit: Wrong Should of tried the damn thing before posting again. Apparently the temp file is not re-storable as a .PSD but, I've found what I think is the same file for upload to EAB, and accidental save in .PSD instead of .PNG for ImageShack and it looks exactly the same as what I can see here

I've created the DH Logo and I'll be adding a smaller version, without the word 'PROOF', somewhere on the cover





btw. I'll be adding this to any and all artwork/wallpapers that I create in future + I'll be re-doing the wallpapers that I have already done sometime in the future

Hope you guys like it, as it's better than finding space for the word 'DemonHellraiser' as this is a little to big and boring

Hi DH,

I've almost got the lists completed for upload tonight!

Just a quick bit of Googling while I'm online to pick up the few bits I'm missing and they'll be ready.

BTW, I have found Aminet CDs 1-49 and the Aminet Games CD. Does anyone know if there are any others?

Hi DH,

Here's the complete set of listings for Aminet CDs 1-52 (I found three more!) and the special edition Aminet Games CD.

All the Aminet CDs include the new additions to Aminet since the last CD, so the structure of the Aminet directory is pretty much the same for the whole series.

Most of the series contain special features like full versions or special editions of commercial programs, or collections of music modules, pictures, clip art or animations. However, some are so full of the latest Aminet additions, that there is no room for anything else, and where this is the case I have listed just the standard Aminet directiories.

I am fairly sure there's nothing important missing, but if you have any questions regarding this, you know where I am.
