coverxp from click here is a prog which allows you to create and print covers from pictures you have on your computer or download from the net. it is free and is what i use to create the dvd case covers for my system backups and dvd copies (i always make a copy for the kids and keep the original safe, when you have two kids under five....they dont understand how to handle dvd's)

I don't suppose you have Nero do you. Nero has a built in printing bit for covers.

i need to be able to do it in word,

anyone know the size of a dvd cover in cm exactly?

if you definitely want to use word then pane 1 would be 12.94cm, 0.91cm for the spline and 12.94 again for the right pane, height is 18.4cm. these are for a slimline case, if you are using standard cases then the spline would need to be a bit bigger.

hope this helps, ps. i use open office. i expect the sizes to be the same in word but please check before spending a lot of time on it.

DVD cover ??? that depends on exatly wot you keep your dvd in .

If you are using the large black plastic folder cases you need 26.4 c x 18.4 cm

But have other ones which require larger
So its not an easy question , I print out then trim to size

Not wishing to fly in the face of the forum helpers and rain on their parade but why don't you measure a CD/DVD cover?
