Though iTunes has its own basic CD label-making tool, using a program like CoverStudio 2 gives your CDs and DVDs a lot more style. The program leads you through a step-by-step process, starting with several choices for what type of label you want to make. DVD cases, DVD booklets, slim cases, jewel cases, Blu-ray cases, and labels for the actual discs are all available. Simply check the box for what you want to make and then choose how you want to format the labels for your printer. You can grab an image you already have or choose from several images that come with CoverStudio 2 a little later in the process. From there you can add text for more personal labels or import information from the disc (like track names or DVD chapters, for example).
Where CoverStudio 2 really shines is when you get to the actual design portion of the program. An intuitive editor makes it easy to tweak your design or even create your own using image import, shape, and text tools. You can change the background, add a table for song names, and add in customized text of your own. Once you've created designs for both the front and back of your case, you're ready to print.
Overall, CoverStudio 2 offers an incredibly easy-to-use interface perfect for most people's labeling and case design needs. If you want a CD or DVD labeling program that just about anyone can pick up and use, but has enough flexibility to create advanced-looking designs, you should check out CoverStudio 2.
