daft question time I've cobbled together a dvd cover for one of my loose dvd's
and I'm having issues of scale I don't know the size in pixels to resize it so I can print it out to the correct size
the dvd cover is a standard single size

Can you set the sizes by cm rather than pixels? :think:

I can't find a setting on any of the editors I use that changes the resize to cm's

I think it is about 1417 x 1417 pixels assuming the cd cover is square. (I divided the image size in CM's by how many pixels it was on photoshop. It looks like 1cm = 118.1pixels.) I hope this helps. :D

For printing it depends on the dpi resolution of the printer rather than what the graphics package thinks it is. Printing to scale for A5 portrait (A4 landscape) with 'normal' margins is pretty close, you just need to set the percentage print scaling for your printer depending on the test output you get for the default
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I think that helps when I measured a dvd cover it came to just short of A4 size paper
so that should do it besides I'm thinking of redoing the back to cut most of the text down

Daughter has a huge DVD collection and keeps them in albums with pockets. It seems to do the trick and keeps everything nice and tidy. It's an idea :)

good idea yes but I like the covers and cases and being able to display them like books besides since I brought a new rack space for now isn't a issue

This week has gotten way too busy, with too many things squeezed in. I'm sitting here plotting how to get out of as much as I can.

I know what you mean Susanne but at least I finally finished up what little prezzie shopping I had to do (everybody apart from my mum are getting leftovers from the exhibition :P ).

However, I was in town earlier to buy a new Christmas tree and getting a bit irate with the other shoppers who walked along the pavement without paying attention and randomly changed direction right into my path or just stopped sharply and without apparent reason right in front of me. (And in one case, one shopper managed to do both!) Pedestrians should be made to take a test and get a license before being allowed out! :lol: (I never did manage to find a tree that I liked either.)
