Best way to make covers for audio CDs?

Discussion in 'Recording' started by ambientnewworld, Sep 11, 2008.

  1. Sorry I don't know if this topic goes here, but I have a problem. If someone could hel me out I would appreciate it.

    I would like to know how to make covers for audio CDs to print as JPEG or some other high quality photo format. I have the images I would like to use. I would like to add to the photos, title for front and a tracklist for the back. It would be great if there is a template for Microsoft word and then somehow convert the images to photo format to be able to print in Adobe photoshop of just about any program that excepts photo formats. Or is there 1 program that does it all?

    I recall Nero lets you print such images. With templates.

    However, a quick Yahoo search gets me this:

    Do you need the template for the text? or the CD size?

    Here are some templates - depending on the numbers companies like this can be a better route than printing yourself.

  4. I know I can do it in Nero. I have Nero 8 Ultimate, but is it possible to convert the front and back covers to jpg or other image format? I would like people to be able to print the covers, but how to let them print after? Some people don't have nero or other programs?

    Microsoft paint will allow you to convert the format. Nero Civer Designer is really simple, and you can get excellent results if you're patient.
  6. I want to know how to convert the covers in the programs such as Nero cover design or such to image files? Can I import the covers from Nero to Adobe Photoshop Elements and convert from there?
  7. If I make covers in Nero as .nct format how are people supposed to print them if they don't have Nero?

    There's a button on the keyboard, what's it called...
    Oh yeah!


    Failing that, use a digicam to take a photo of the finished CD.
  9. if I press print key won't it print the whole page, whatever is displayed?
    and what is digicam, can I download it free?

    A Digital Camera cannot be downloaded free.

    Use print screen to take a snap shot of the screen, then use ms paint to cut out what you want then print only that.
