    My friends started a little hardcore band (I personally am not really into hardcore though) anyways though, they asked me to make a simple flyer type thing about their band and the demo thy just put out.

    Here's what I came up with.

    Suggestions GREATLY appreciated. I am still pretty new with Photo Editing.

    EDIT: In case you are having trouble, the name of the band (the top) is "Black Friday Massacre", & the demo CD title (bottom) is "Death is Only the Beginning".

    It would be better if the text didn't fade to white then just cut off.

    Are you talking about around the edges of the text?

    If so, I couldn't get all that to go transparent. There was just to many closed areas, and due to the font some closed areas were very small and hard to use the magic wand with.

    On my final copy, I am definitely going to work on getting the white away though.

    Why do you not just put the font over the picture? Rather than cutting it out of white...?

    Maybe make the top and bottom text more readable?

    Well I was on my laptop, which doesn't have all my fonts installed, so instead I had to do it ghetto styled lol.

    I had to go to the site where I originally purchased my fonts, then type in the sample text, took a screenshot (because the sites wont let you copy), the cut and paste.

    Poor boy style. lol
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    That's the style font this genre typically uses.

    Most people I know can easily read fonts like these, although most the time I can't, because I don't listen to it, I'm not used to seeing them.

    But the font stays, due to the style.

    but THANKS!

    I noticed that, I was going to see what you guys said about it.

    I'll probably fix it.

    THANKS!

    Not bad, if you get the font issue fixed. I just noticed though, you spelled "Beginning" wrong. Haha, might fix that up
