Easy to use Software
CDPrintExpress has developed an easy-to-use software program that allows
you to create a perfect master for CD printing in a few minutes. Creating
your own master saves time and cost; we never charge a setup fee.
After you have downloaded and installed the free software, you simply start
up the CDPrintExpress software, open the photo image (photo from digital
camera or scanned image), zoom in to the area of the photo that you want
on the CD face, insert text and artwork into the image (drag and drop), review
the final design, save the image and email it to us with your order.
The CDPrintExpress software has been developed with Microsoft's new .NET
Framework and runs on Windows only. If you have a new computer you may already
probably have the Framework runtime file on your system. If you don't have
the Framework runtime file it can be downloaded from Microsoft's website
(see instructions below). The Framework is a fairly large file (20MB) but
since most new programs will now be written in the .NET Framework you will
need that file sooner or later. The CDPrintExpress software, however, is
quite small (300k)
Processing graphics files requires a fair amount of system memory. To run
the CDPrintExpress CD design software, you need 128k or more of memory. The
program will work with less memory, but painfully slow.
