    use photo shop or similar software, where you can set the image sizes, measure one of your other covers - set the cover you want to the same size.

    Is there more to this problem cos that seems a bit obvious.

    no problem. i just thought that they would automatically print at the size of the original scan (100%). But the printer software always prints them slightly larger! better start using photoshop.

    Make sure you print software is not set to "fit to page" mode as the covers are just slightly smaller than a page of A4.

    For a real novice (yep me!)

    load it into excel or similar where you can resize it manually.

    Worth making a template also.

    i only ever use cover pro to print all my covers, it already has preset templates for ffront and back of jewel case of a cd, and you can add your own custom to print dvd, vhs and whatever, it also does cd labels if you use them

    just followed up a few leads. the reason that i haven't been able to save the covers is because AOL compresses the files and makes them unuseable. i have to change some of the AOL setting.(hurry up BT internet!)

    right m8 here is wot i use, in the first window, drop the arrow down to user defined 1 or 2 or whatever, then type in these numbers

    H=27.4 V=18.4
    X=0.1 Y=0.1


    make sure you tick the rotate 90 degrees m8 or it wont print in portrait like it should, works perfect for me every time.

    some printers have an option in the settings to print to the edge of the page, or tick maximum printable area, mines an epson and has this option, but just see how you get on , if it dont work look for similar settings in your printer settings
