Most of the times it is not enough to simply burn files to a CD or DVD. If you want it to look good in it's case, you are able to give it a personalized touch by creating a cover. There are various applications available to help you design a cover, one of which is Focus DVD-CD Cover Maker.
The application takes roughly about 5Mb of space on your hard disk drive. Moreover, it uses little of your CPU and memory, so it can run on any configuration you might be using.
Available features are all stored in a slightly compact user interface, with a sufficient preview section which is also your workspace, letting you arrange elements by dragging them around. An upper toolbar is home to all tools you can work with, represented by large and intuitive icons.
Your design template is split into three tabs, for back and front covers of the case, as well as for the disk itself. Unfortunately, your canvas has a fixed size, with no rulers available to know or carefully adjust elements. Nor can you find case templates or the possibility to resize the existing one.
Depending on the type of disc you want to create, the application lets you quickly insert time-specific options, image files, a test field, as well as a predefined short list with tracks and duration for songs.
There is also a decent library of image files you can use as a background or just to enhance the cover. Once your work is done it can be saved to an application specific format or have it printed on a sheet of paper and cut to fit in the desired case.
All in all, Focus DVD-CD Cover Maker may not be the best or good looking application of its kinds, but manages to get the job done good. The interface is home to all tools and lets you quickly accommodate to start creating personalized covers to enhance you music or movie collection.
