How to Make Album Covers


A person or group capable of recording a music album may not have any artistic ability when it comes to making an album cover. This can be somewhat aggravating, especially if you don't have photo editing software on your computer. Fortunately, you can make album covers by converting any picture on your computer into an album cover, which can then be printed or saved to your computer.
