There is little question that the internet has changed out lives. Maybe not always for the better, but a change nonetheless. The online world is here and much like a train coming down the tracks, we’d better get on or get out of the way.
One of my all-time favorite Mac apps was upgraded recently; an app I’ve used many times but not for a few years. Why not? It performs tasks that might seem antiquated to many of the post-PC era where iPhone, iPad, and the cloud rule (and store) every digital thing we own. Tell me if you remember using an app like this.
‘We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Labels’
Way back in the day, as far back as the last century, CD and then DVD labels were all the rage among Mac and Windows PC users. We used CDs for music and sneaker net. We used DVDs for movies and file storage and archives. Jack and I still have a substantial CD music and DVD movie collection, not to mention photo and movie clips which have been archived on the little round media.
With pleasure I inform you that CD and DVD labels still prosper in the digital age, though maybe not as much as in years gone by. You can still design and print colorful, attractive, profession grade, and highly useful CD and DVD covers. But stick a cover on a CD or DVD and how will you play it? Not many Macs have SuperDrives these days.
Disc Cover has always been a favorite way to create CD and DVD labels. If you haven’t gone completely mad with streaming music services, Netflix, and cloud storage options, CDs and DVDs still work.
If you can find a Mac with a Superdrive CD-DVD player. Start with any of the hundreds of template sets in Disc Cover to create a CD and DVD worthy of your time.
Because Disc Cover has been around for many years it comes packed with all the bells and whistles, including clipart, photo collages, backgrounds, and options for thousands of additional images and extra fonts.
It’s also smart enough to drop in track and lyric information from iTunes, photos from iPhoto and almost anything else that makes a physical CD or DVD, well, physical. That includes multipage booklets, case inserts, spines, and the ability to print out on all those Avery, Memorex, Neato layouts. You can even print direct to disc from HP, Canon, and Epson printers.
Disc Cover is easy to get started using the templates, each one can be customized, too, and it’s simple to drop in different text, backgrounds, clip art, or anything else that customizes your label.
Disc covers for CDs and DVDs may be a dying art, but it’s not dead. Yet. The only real negative is finding a new Mac that has a SuperDrive or CD/DVD player.
