Frequently asked questions

What are the dimensions of the CD covers ?

The front cover is squared, 120 x 120 mm. So, if you don't want that Cocoa resizes the illustrations, provide a squared illustration (for example 500 x 500 pixels).

Will MyCoverCD support special papers planned to print covers cd ?

The answer is no. Why ?

Personally, I don't use special paper, I print on normal paper hard-back, then I cut up the covers with a cutter, like this I'm sure that the covers are good printed . Then no, I won't implement this possibility in MyCoverCD, sorry.
