This week’s Cover Makeover is for the movie poster for Six Days, Seven Nights. I have to tell you, I struggled with this one. Mom and I searched all through her photos (and that’s A LOT!) before we found one – or more we liked. I finally settled on something from a group of photos from mom’s trip to Jamaica when she was just a kid – back in the 1960s. But which one to choose? So many! Here’s what we did:
I finally decided on this photo of the beach.
After cropping it – this wasn’t the final crop, but you get the idea, I noticed it had a greenish hue (natural aging).
I changed the photo to black and white in PicMonkey.
I knew I wanted a plane so first I picked this plane (taken in 1953).
So, again using PicMonkey I cut it out of the background and tried it on the beach. I didn’t like it.
So I looked on-line until I found a photo of the plane from the movie.
I cut it out of the photo. . .
Made it black and white, and placed it in the middle right side of the photo -sort of like it was coming into land. Added text and could finally call it done!!
Here’s the original movie poster!!
