More Album Cover Research

I had a look at more album covers to get an idea about the fonts and where to place the title.

I came across this website… https://spark.adobe.com/make/album-cover-maker

Looking at there examples I changed my album cover to black and white to get an idea of  what it would look like. I actually really like the way it looks, I think it works well with the font and I think having the text in the middle at the top works well. But my genre is Pop and that its more on the colour side. But I do think it looks good black and white.

For licensing and pricing I contacted the Royal Museums Greenwich. This is what they said in the email… The best place to look would be our price list page which give you all our current prices for a selection of usages http://images.rmg.co.uk/en/pages/pricelist_page.html

The license entails all of the customers’ requirements on how they would like to use the image, such as a book publication we would then include print run, image size, territories, languages etc which is part of the license agreement and the customer can only use the image for the exact usage they stated, they would sign our image order form with terms and conditions to confirm this.

Our minimum price per image is £50+VAT which includes the supply fee for the high resolution image and we check all our prices are on point by benchmarking various museums and picture libraries price lists every 3-4 years.
