Making CD covers and tray inserts..
    #2193930 - 12/21/03 03:59 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Search function is gonna kill me if it doesn't come back soon...

I need to make a tray insert. I just got photoshop 7.0 and am *really* rusty with it. Does anyone have a template or something.. or some tips or suggestions on how to make a proper insert? I'm talking the back graphic with the bends so you can read the spine and everything. And just for my information.. what is the size (in pixels) for cd covers?

I usually just trace a cd tray on paper and draw by hand. but, a good idea would be measuring the tray and then using the ruler option.

I'm so shitty with photoshop... ok say I have the exact graphic and everything I want..and I also found a template.. I just need to make it the right size to fit inside the template... how do I cut and paste a graphic to fit inside a box.. everytime I try it just pastes taking up too much space or not enough. I probably just need to play with photoshop more..but I know someone knows how to do this..

i bought a thing from wal-mart for 5.00 in the electronics department that allows you to custom your own cd labels and inserts for a jewel case, if that helps you at all. the name of it is "neato: cd/dvd labeling starter kit"

hope the other posters helped more though, i know how much everyone likes going to wal-mart... :wink:, hehehe

yeah, there are all kinds of programs for making things like that.
example: nero cover designer.

just search kazaa or something, you'll probablty find something you can use. good luck :laugh:

I actually find them easier to make not using photoshop.
I use photo express, just get the pic on and resize it to
cd cover size and thats it.

Neato products are what I also use for my CD-roms, all four opf them. I have a CD Neato labeler Kit with a plastic gadjet which allows me to place the labels on the cd. It also has templates for the inserts.

The kit I have cost 20.00 and I buy labels by the hundreds.

Truth be told i never make the covers.
I download that many i just burn it, write
who's on it and it go'es onto one of they
spindles that holds 50 discs.
Covers take up to much house space, i know
they protect the disc but if the disc gets
damaged just burn another, one downside though
is you love every track on the album but are not
sure all the song titles because you dont have a cover.
