Decorating CD- and DVD-disks

If you often burn various information – music, photos, videos, etc. – to CDs or DVDs, and want them to be beautifully designed and not signed on the gray surface of the disk, you can create and print nifty labels and stick them on your disks. For this, you can use photos of the artists (for music CDs), photos of your family and friends (for photo CDs), or just beautiful images or photos. However, if you just print the image, it will be difficult to cut a circle of the needed size with a hole in the center. Still, you can print the “rounded” image on white background with a white circle inside. You’ll just have to cut off the white background and stick the image to the disk. Image Converter Plus will help you do this job.

Do the following:

Step 1:

  • First, download the template (a graphics file specially prepared to solve this problem) from [……]. The template is prepared for printing with resolution of 300 DPI, so, if you want to print this template with other resolution, you should increase or reduce the size of this template according to printing resolution.

Step 2:

  • Launch Image Converter Plus.

Step 3:

  • Go to “Photos” tab, select and add images you want to see on your disks.

Step 4:

  • Go to Profiles tab. In “Operation before save: Add operation” line, click “Add operation” and select “Resize” from the menu.

Step 5:

  • Click “Add operation” once again and select “Watermark” from the menu.

Step 6:

  • Click “+” mark located to the left from “Add operation” line to open the group of settings for added operations.

Step 7:

  • In “Resize”, press “more” button. In “Document size”, enter 12×12 cm. In “horizontal resolution”, enter printing resolution. Enable “use as horizontal” checkbox, disable “use original image resolution in case it is supported” checkbox, and select “fill in size” in “fit mode” line.

Step 8:

  • In “Watermark”, enter the full path to the downloaded template file in “Apply watermark from file” line.

Step 9:

  • In “with horizontal offset, with vertical offset”. specify “0” and “0”.

Step 10:

  • In “using method”, select “Alpha Blend”.

Step 11:

  • Specify settings for the output format (optimal values are specified by default).

Step 12:

  • Specify the folder to save the converted image to.

Step 13:

  • Specify other settings.

Step 14:

  • Press “Start” button to start conversion. To make your job even easier, you can download a prepared profile from [……]. The only thing you’ll have to do is specify the path to the downloaded template file.
