DealBITS Drawing: BeLight Software's Disc Cover

Send Article to a Friend

The Ukrainian Mac development firm BeLight Software continues to extend their flock of special purpose publishing programs, adding the CD/DVD labeling software Disc Cover to the collection of Business Card Composer, Mail Factory, and Swift Publisher. Like BeLight's other programs, Disc Cover offers a clean interface for arranging text and graphics, this time within the limitations of CD/DVD disc labels (along with jewel case covers, booklets, and even odd items like mini CDs/DVDs, business card CDs/DVDs, and VHS labels). It shows alignment lines as you move objects around, integrates the image editing features from BeLight's free Image Tricks, and offers a slew of backgrounds and other images you can use. There's also full integration with iTunes and iPhoto, plus the capability to pull in MP3 information and pictures from folders in the Finder. And if you're not feeling creative, Disc Cover offers a bunch of pre-designed templates you can customize.
