Two physical images (record covers) are delivered as a source for the cover. Using these we are going to reproduce the cover of the first volume of this book using a different color scheme. We also get a digital photograph of the author.
Preparing images for layout is often an integrated part of the layout work, instead of being done before the layout. This is the case in our tutorial, and the process is described in Step 5: Cover layout:
- Setting up GIMP and Inkscape
- Graphic element 1. Elvis silhouette
- Graphic element 2. Title logo
- Author photograph
No images or graphics are going to be used on the inner pages.
