When you are looking to make your own Mac CD or DVD cover you want a program that is going to do your artwork justice and that is going to look professionally printed when you are done. You want everything to look as though it came right out of a distribution center rather than off your home computer. It lends an air of credibility to your DVD or CD and helps others to take the product a bit more seriously.
Everyone knows that it is easier to run artwork through a Mac and to work with the various creation programs. The truth is that you lose a lot of value if you have to move your artwork from platform to platform. That is why having a program that can help you layout a true CD or DVD cover that runs on your Mac makes all the difference. You simply drag and drop things and then resize everything to fit your program and your experience.
Building your own covers for CDs and DVDs takes a big chunk out of the budget so you can use that money for the look or the sound. It aids you in keeping things cheap and helps you turn a profit. Pretty much the best of all worlds.
