Any one knows of a good program that will let me get any picture and use it as a cd cover, now Im not talking about cd labels, what I want is something that uses any picture I have and resize it so it fits on the plastic cd cover, thanks in advance!

I find the cover features in iTunes to work well.

Or if you want to add a cd cover (that you may have already), use something like irfanview (or something that can scan).

But you'll have to have a scanner (separate or part of a multifunction printer).

Then use something like Itunes

Thank you for your replies :), but what I want is a program (free preferebly) that lets me use a picture I downloaded from the internet and it resizes it so it can fit the plastic cover that holds the cd. I really wouldnt like to use Itunes since I dont have an ipod nor like them, so any other progs that can do it?

Its called cover designer (thats if you ticked it / did a custom install), or something, look in the menu under the Nero menu

I used to use Nero, but it got too bloated

Agreed, anything over version 6 i never use.

I think you just stretch the picture to fit the outline of the jewel case or disc, whatever and then print. Might take a few times to get it right, so practise first
Once printed, when you trim it with sissors, cut not too close to the line first. Sometimes when i cut on the line so it doesnt show, the cut out was too loose and fell out all the time.

This one will do EXACTLY what you want undercoverXP (http://www.undercoverxp.tk/) ( works with Vista as well) and its free - you select the size of the cover, CD, DVD etc - click in the box where the picture is to go - select the picture you want - and it will automatically snap to the cover size, hit print - thats it - done

Examples of above: Select Cover size (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/Cover1239228163.jpg) -- Click Box, then Select picture (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/Cover_2.jpg)

Use it all the time on XP, but I use the inbuilt one now in Ashampoo's CD burning software.

Edited: May start using it again on this Vista PC.

MEDIAFACE 5.0 by Fellowes does a good job.
You can get it from Cnet.download.com or
directly from mediaface.com
