Nero CoverDesigner is an intuitive piece of software whose main purpose is to provide you with an easy means of creating professional looking disc covers for your collection, using your favorite pictures and other custom elements. It also allows you to create booklets, inlays, even business cards, with a minimum amount of effort.
During the installation process, you need to pay attention as you will be offered to install third party applications which Nero CoverDesigner does not need in order to function. As such, you can either accept or decline, after which the operation proceeds as normal.
When you launch the program, you can choose the type of document you wish to work with, for instance 'Audio', 'Data', 'Video', 'Audio and Data'. At the same time, you can choose the shape ('Slim Case', 'Multi Box', 'Maxi', 'Standard', 'Biz Card', 'Mini CD' and several others).
The main interface is sufficiently approachable, featuring several toolbars, meant to simplify your work and offer you quick access to the most useful functions ('Line Tool', 'Image Tool', 'Save', 'Cut', 'Undo' as well as alignment and text editing options).
Nero CoverDesigner lets you insert a preferred image and move it onto the surface of the CD label. Additionally, you can insert 'Text Box', 'Artistic Text', 'Track List' or various 'Fields' ('Title', 'Artist', 'Disc Title', 'Playing Time', etc).
Moreover, the utility features various 'Effects' which can be used to enhance the visual appearance of the cover, so you can adjust the 'Brightness', 'Contrast' or 'Gamma', apply filters such as 'Emboss', 'Erode', 'Outline', 'Sharpen', 'Soften', 'Mosaic', and more. Also, you can 'Flip' the picture or use 'Negate', 'Swirl', 'Rotate' and 'Pinch' to generate unique results.
To conclude, Nero CoverDesigner is a useful tool that can easily assist you in creating interesting and impressive covers, labels, booklets or inlays for your discs, enabling you to have a fully customized collection.
