ABOUT THIS INTERACTIVE  

Overview

 

 

The CD/DVD Cover Creator allows users to type and illustrate CD and DVD covers and related booklets for liner notes and other information. Students can use the tool to create covers for books, music, and films that they explored as well as to create covers for media they compose individually or as a class. Students can use text tools to add formatting to their titles and notes, add shading to background areas of the covers and booklets, and draw original images to illustrate their covers and booklets.
