Editors' Review


Ashampoo Cover Studio is a versatile program that allows user to create cover art for CDs, DVDs, and other media in a variety of formats. We liked that the program contains both attractive templates and plenty of options for user customization.

The program's interface isn't the most intuitive thing we've ever seen, but on the whole, it's attractive and pretty easy to figure out. Users first choose from among several cover formats, including cases and booklets for DVDs and jewel cases and slim cases for CDs. After that the program walks users through each step of the process, adding title information and track listings. Users can create custom graphics by using their own images and inserting and formatting text, tables, and shapes, but the program also has a nice variety of templates to choose from. We've seen similar programs that come with pretty cheesy templates, and it is true that a few of Cover Studio's templates are a little tacky and reminiscent of clip art, but most of them are based on high-quality, professional-looking images. The program's Help file is well-written and thorough, with plenty of screenshots. Overall, we felt that Ashampoo Cover Studio struck a good balance between being easy to use and having a strong set of features. It's a good choice both for users who need to create covers for the occasional mix CD and users who need professional-grade covers for business materials.

Ashampoo Cover Studio has a 30-day trial period. The program installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
