Hi guys. Some time back I bought a load of CD/DVD cases from a computer fair ( thought they might come in handy).Problem is I dont know the make or type of case but they are slightly smaller than a "regular" DVD case, i.e 25.1 cm wide by 13.6 cm high with spine at .9 cm wide.

Question is, ( at the risk of sounding really thick :unsure: ) how do I convert images down to print the exact size in PS using pixels.

I do know how to resize an image but am crap at maths when it comes to converting cms to pixels.

Any help would be appreciated. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/thumb.gif)

What you can do (but I'm not a PS expert or custom cover expert) If you have a dvd case template already created then just measure your case. (mine are W 11.25 inches x H 7.25 inches. So go to image/Image size/ and check constrain proportions box. Set the resolution to 300, then just change the Width and Height to what ever your case measures on a ruler. I use inches, but there is cm/mm/etc...

That may be the hard way, but like I said that's one way to do it. Hopefully someone with more experience can add another way...

I would do that. Measure up your case, and just adjust the size of the image in PS. Edit -> Canvas size

And before you print a nice glossy cover, throw some cheap paper in your printer, and do a draught print, then size it up in your case. When you have the right size, then do your glossy print!
