|Look at all you can do. It's easy and you have total control.
Arrow 1.) Layout Tab. Click this to get to the 1 Click Track Layout Templates.
I've provided all you probably need, but you can alter them or make your own and
when you save them, they will be here for you to use anytime with 1 click. Arrow
1a.) This is a template with all the tracks on the Left. You can click it and
it will load all your tracks on the Label you see on screen. It's just that fast.
Arrow 1b.) Here's a template I setup of my dive pictures. I'm burning more
than 1 CD with this label so it was easier to just make it a template. So you
see you can do templates of pictures, layouts or anything.
Arrow 2.) Shapes and boxes. Often when you are doing a label you'll want
to have different colored geometric shapes. Just click any of these buttons to
create squares, rounded corner squares and rectangles, round or even diamond shapes.
Plus you can use any color you want with just a click.
Arrow 2a.) Here's a rounded box I made and I made this one red. You can
put type on them or I often put a picture over them and just leave them a few
pixels bigger than the picture to get an instant frame.
Arrow 3.) Layer your pictures-. This is great. You can put pictures behind
or in front of other pictures so you only see part of one or the other. I often
have 6-8 pictures on a label and this way I can control where each is and what
Arrow 4.) Everything is straight and balanced. I can't draw a straight
line with a ruler, but look at all you can do with these 9 controls. Select as
many of your pictures or elements as you like. Then with one click, make them
all flush left, flush right, centered horizontally and centered vertically. It's
all easy. It's all straight and your labels will look great, just like mine do.
Arrow 5.) Zoom in or out. You have 6 levels of easy zoom to see the detail
of what you are doing.
Arrow 6.) Import Pictures. I've detailed this below, but in short, click
these buttons to open a new Picture Grabbing box. If you've got a picture on your
computer, now it can be on your labels. And of course the 2200 wonderful original
Arrow 7.) This is just one of your 2200 images. You see it just like it
will look on the label.
|The main picture above is showing the Disc layout. Just click these tabs to
move to the Front of the Jewel case, the Inside, or the back. It's all super easy.
Arrow 8.) Text on your labels is super important. You can select to add
regular text that runs across the page or circular text that goes around the label
(Very sophisticated and not available on most label programs).
Arrow 8a.) Regular Text. For tracks most of the time you'll just use one
of our templates, but if you want to write something on the label, just do it
Arrow 8b.) Circular Text. This is great and I love using it. Your circular
text goes around the label and you can do multiple lines of text. I use it all
the time for album titles and more. Just click the circular text button and type
all you want. Then click it again for a 2nd line. And what's neat is you can grab
them and move them in or out so they go anywhere you want them on the label.
Arrow 8c.) Make your Text look like you want it to. This is what you'd
expect to be able to do. Use any font on your computer. Make it any size you like.
Make it Bold, underlined or Italic. Make it any color you like. Center it, or
flush left or flush left. You can even flip the circular text so it reads from
the outside of the label. Very cool.
Arrow 9.) Awesome Shadows Super White Layout. OK this may be my favorite.
I've never seen anyone do this before and it will blow you away. The white part
of the label with the drop shadow coming from the beautiful background ISN'T
WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE. IT'S PHONY.
This is a Drew special. This is one of my backgrounds, but you choose it as an
image and then you slide it over the background. I've actually put the shadow
your eye expects to come from the picture to the left onto the white. It's phony,
but you can't tell.
This way you can cover the part of the label where you want to put the tracks
so you can print on white. Sometimes I just use reverse type on the label and
that's great. Sometimes I like to use these special drop shadow covers. They really
do look real and they make the labels look really dramatic.
