    I recently got a scan for the BMW dvd from this site and have had trouble getting the size of the image to be large enough for a keep case when printed. I have an HP Deskjet 712C and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how to make the image fit. Thanks.

    Jeremy, the best thing you can do is try to obtain Photoshop. I encountered similar difficulties and after I installed Photoshop, I found that I could set the size of the image to exactly match the dimensions of DVD inserts.

    While Photoshop will definately do this it is a little spendy for most people. Paint Shop Pro from Jasc will do almost everything that Photoshop will for around $70 instead of around $600. For what you want to do PSP will work just as well as PS.

    A similar question: I'm using Apple's iDVD to create my own home movie DVDs. I just purchased some keep cases to store them in, but don't know where to start for creating box art. Is there a software app that has a template for doing this? I'm hoping for something along the lines of creating art for jewel cases and so on. I do have Photoshop if that helps... Thanks for the suggestions,

    Pieter

    Check this site: DVD Cover Art. It will provide the templates & a help guide & actual art downloads, and a forum for asking questions. [​IMG]
