Easy Effect Question
How do I take an album cover that is absolute black with a graphic, and make it look worn like this deadmau5 album looks,

is there an exact overlay or something I can try? I want to make it look authentic and maybe even distort the colour a bit, would I use the red colour curve?

RE: Easy Effect Question
Well, I didn't really get what you mean... what you are trying to do, replicate that album cover? It seems to me that it was made with a 3d software, you could get something like that really easy in blender. But you can get close to that in gimp, to, with extra work. I would start with circles, painting them with this dark red. Near the eyes I would use 100% red. The not so black background could be tricky to do if you want to equal it... then you could use the clone tool on a copy of this album cover. Hope it helps!
