Making A CD Cover Suggestions


 Share

Recommended Posts

OK, I don't have nero cover designer, or photoshop, office, or any fancy design progs, But I do have W7 Ultimate and a cannon printer,

 

I have cds, slim cases and a title list and a front cover image.

 

What do you use for such a task,

 

Step by step simple instructions. or easy tutorials is what I'm thinking,

 

All suggestions considered....

 

pls?

OK, I don't have ... office

Try LibreOffice Draw, or Writer. http://www.libreoffice.org/

 

Draw and scale (using dimensions) a rectangle/square to suit (you could use an existing jewel case insert to get dimensions from). Insert images/text. Print, and cut out with a (sharp) stanley knife and ruler. You may have to crop images to match the cover's ratio.

 

You could also tryout these free OpenOffice templates (through LibreOffice): http://templates.openoffice.org/en/search?search_api_views_fulltext=cd+case&sort_by=created&sort_order=ASC I'd personally recommend the ones with the CC Attribute license.

 

Edit (after doing a simple Google search):

Note: I haven't confirmed the sizes above are correct.
