    Printing information is right on their site. Check the left-hand table for GUIDES, there's info on how to properly print from all sorts of programs.

    Okay, here's what you do (I think).

    1. Measure the case cover dimensions (x inch/cm by x inch/cm)
    2. Open the cover art on MSPaint
    3. Do Right Click->Select All and size it down to be relatively small
    4. Go to Image->Attributes
    5. Change the unit to Inches/Centimeters (whatever you measured in) and type in the measurements of the cover.
    6. Make the image the size of the cover.
    7. If it's pixelated, then IDK.
    8. Use your printer magic!

    This should work or I could be completely stupid and not reading anything at all. If you're still having issues, I'll give it a shot eventually. I just need to go to a graduation in like 15mins.

    easiest solution would be to find a FREEWARE dvd box cover printing application it will resize them automatically!

    they are HUGE for a reason HUGE image higher resolution when scaled down to fit [​IMG]


    tiny pictures scaled up will be blocky and pixelated [​IMG]

    depends on the DPI of the image does it not?? for example a 200*200px image at 300dpi will upscale better than the same 200*200 image at 150dpi..obviously, the dpi isnt as important when downscaling...
