CoolLabel is a lightweight cover editor built specifically for helping you create Floppy, JAZ, MP3, ZIP, MP3 and VHS labels.
It sports a clean and straightforward interface that allows users to select the source and label type. The application comes packed with different templates to choose from, but you can design new ones from scratch.
You can upload images to the working environment by using the “drag and drag” support or the built-in browse function. The program offers support for the JPG and BMP file formats.
When it comes to editing tools, you can insert objects (rectangles and ellipses), draw lines, and zoom in or out of the generated labels, and pick the pen size. All unnecessary adjustments can be easily rolled back. The label header section can be edited in terms of name, description, author and creation date.
It is possible to insert text messages which can be rotated to different angle degrees and customized in terms of font style, color and size.
For a better control of the entire process you can use hotkeys, but they cannot be reassigned. What’s more, you can view the labels before actually printing them.
The program reads music from audio CDs by using the CDDB (Compact Disc Database) method to search for song metadata on the Internet (e.g. artist, track, song). Hence, the application automatically reads the contents of your data and fills the missing information.
All in all, CoolLabel offers some basic features when it comes to designing labels, as it comes packed with a preset list of templates and editing capabilities. Although it cannot compete with other top products from its category, it does what it says and can be mastered by beginners and experts alike.
