I need to make some new demo cd copies and am hoping to burn some graphics (my photo) onto the top of the cd. Does anyone know how to do this? Can you do this with regular Windows applications, or does it require special software? Thanks for any advice.


I presume someone with PhotoShop and knows how to use it would work fine, otherwise people use software like this http://www.easycoverdesign.com

It's something I've never done because as I understand it, the prints add weight to the CD and cause premature motor burnout on the player, so I've just avoided it. Pro shops use silk screening.

It sounds like you're thinking of something like LightScribe...after you burn your cd, you just flip it over and burn the image on the other side.

I agree with Jack. LightScribe is the best way.

Good luck !
