Aside from a small PEGI rating this doesn't look bad at all. 7/10

Lessen your photo grain a bit, and put some black behind the dirt logo. Also, the Codemasters logo is a little hard to read. I'd put a white stroke around it.

Also either make the renders look more like photographs, like they are layered over one another, or blend the images together. Not bad. You change up those things and you could be getting a fav from me soon.

#5, What program do you use?

#6, You can edit your post if you forgot something. Anyway, probably a solid black that kind of splatters out, like paint splatters, or in this case, "dirt" splatters.

#9, Like I said, there's an edit button, oi. For the blending, you want to merge the layers that the two photos are on, but I would make sure your PSD file is separate from your original in case you mess up, or at least clone the two layers of the renders. Then you should have a smudge/blur tool (smudge is a finger pointing to the upper left and blur is a water drop, they are on the same tool, you have to click down and hold until the other options appear.)

Just work them into one another.

As for the splatter, you should have some simple splatter brushes even in Elements.

Oh, and Glows, I don't know for sure if Elements has it, but if so, there's a little f in a circle icon in the lower right of the layers box, just click onto that, and outer glow is there as well as a bunch of other handy effects tools.

ok guys, i hope this is better, if not tell me where to change - i took the grain away because i though it was better without and changed the front cover images because i thought these represented more the roots this game originated from - car rallying rather than dune buggys!!! - also tell me ow to improve further as well as rate out of 10

#12, I don't know, I think you should stick to one image, like the one you have on top and expand on it. It just seems weird to have two different images from two different points of view.

Also, the logo looks better, but make the splatter somewhat darker and kind of lower the opacity a bit more as it extends out.

Your about a 6/10 at this point.

please re rate out of ten if this is better or worse and give advice. tleeart i decided to keep 2 pics because otherwise it would just be and image with some logos/ratings and text on.

This did take quite a while because for a lot of the time i was improving it to make it better, and discovering how to put certain effects on and as a consequence of listening to advice i think this is my best box
