is a program to design and print CD covers or CD inlays.
After trying a lot of programs and templates for Word, I concluded they didn't
work properly or introduced viruses. So I decided to write a CD cover program
myself. I'm happy with the result; It does do exactly what I wanted.
After reading the picture for the front cover it is scaled and placed on the
right position. After reading the text for the back cover it places itself on the
right place, also the splines will be filled with the right text.
On the help pages you will find a description of how to download the front pictures
and the contents list for the back from the internet.
At startup of the program the mainscreen is shown.
It contains a number of Buttons and the layout of the most recent project. Also
cutting lines and two frames for the front and back inlays are shown.
NewClick the 'New' Button to clear the layout.
The cutting lines and frames remain on the layout.
Read Front PictureClick this Button to load the
picture for the front inlay of the CD box. The picture is automatically
scaled and placed within the upper frame.
Read Back TextClick this Button to load the text file
with the text fot the back inlay. A new window is shown. Click the button
'Read' to load the text file. The current window enables you to correct the
text. Finally click the OK Button to place the text on the layout form and
fill the splines (this is also the name of the current project).
