Hello everyone! I just completed a slideshow using iMovie & iDVD. It is a bunch of family photos. I would like to make a nice looking cover for the disc using one (or more) of my own pictures. Is there any free (or not) software that is recommended? Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Disk Label is a good one, there is a free trial you can try before you buy aswell available here: DiscLabel: Mac CD/DVD Label Software for OS X

Hope this helps

Or you can make a template in a word processor and make your own. Doesn't take long.

If it is the standard drive that came with the Mac then i'm afraid they are not Litescribe ready! You would have to buy another internal or external drive that is Litescrive ready!

Hope this helps

Nope, it is a special drive and you need special discs aswell. More information about it here and it is in a way quite complicated...

Lightscribe requires both a special drive AND special (and rather hard to find) discs. It produces some lovely monochrome effects but isn't in my judgement worth the considerable extra money unless that's how you want to do discs forever.
