Cover Makeover: Six Days, Seven Nights

6 days 7 nights

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. It has a greenish hue to it so I changed to black and white in PicMonkey.

After cropping it - this wasn't the final crop, but you get the idea, I noticed it had a greenish hue (natural aging)

So, again using PicMonkey I cut it out of the background and tried it on the beach. I didn't like it.

Made it black and white, and placed it in the upper right corner 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!!

  1. Fabulous!! I’m so impressed with those of you who’ve layered a plane into the shot. This is great. And a photo from the 60s? That’s awesome. Thanks so much for sharing this with us.
