Using Adobe Photoshop, the industry standard graphics program, you can create sophisticated album art that appears professional and polished. Many tutorials and tools are available for beginners.
Many online user created tutorials exist, ranging from how to perform the basic processes necessary to create an album cover--including importing photographs, using layer features and adding text--to more advanced graphics techniques. Resources distributed by Adobe, including an online users manual, are less specific in explaining the process of creating a rap CD cover but provide a comprehensive walk-through of all the program's tools and features.
A rap CD cover typically consists of an image of the artist, the artist's name and the album name. A tutorial will show you how to add all of these elements, enabling you to create an album cover from start to finish, often with helpful photographs and step-by-step instructions.
After opening your desired image in Adobe Photoshop, apply effects using Photoshop's filter tools, located under the "Filter" heading on the main toolbar, and add text using the text tool located on the tools palate. Resize your image by selecting "Image" on the main toolbar, then clicking "Resize."
