Ohmergerd, you guys, I get to see all of your faces in A MATTER OF WEEKS!!! I'm so stoked :DDD

I'm going to be running a panel on podfic cover art, and before getting much further in my planning process, I wanted to open the floor to ask what YOU guys wanted to hear about in a cover art panel! Do you want to know how to achieve a certain specific look? How to find and choose fonts? Larger, conceptual stuff, like what makes a podfic cover work or not work? Please, tell me what you want to hear and talk about!!!

- The power of composition
- Basic colour theory (warm vs cold colours)
- how to mush 2 pictures together
- how to add a texture

My only thoughts on this matter are "eurgh, how do cover art???" I'm one of those heathens who tends to just slap some text over a screenshot and call it a day. Would love some coverage of the very basic basics--what image editing programs are free and easy to use? Are there graphic design/image editing primers that you've found helpful? And, as you say, the larger conceptual stuff of what makes something work.

That all sounds good. I'm also curious about how and to what extent cover artists try to match the cover art to the mood of the podfic. That may be more of a meta question than a how-to topic.
