Photo Tips for DVD Cases
Ideally a photo in portrait format works best because it better fits the shape of a DVD case but we can crop a landscape photo. The larger the resolution of your digital photo the better. Printed photos should be no smaller than 4 x 6, although a larger photo, 5 x 7 and up, is better. If the photo that you want to use is a printed pic and not digital, we can scan it and return it to you.
With a landscape photo you only get to use about half of the picture.
We took the image above and were able to clone the top and bottom areas to change a landscape photo to a portrait photo. This is not always as easy to do as it was in this case. The point being that if you're going to take a photo specifically to use as a DVD case insert, then turn the camera 90 degrees and take a portrait pic. The example below is a landscape photo that was in such a large resolution (3300 x 2200) and the car was so perfectly placed in the image that we were able to use 1 photo to wrap around the front and the back of the DVD case.
This is ideal for a front or back DVD case photo.
There is even a good place at the top of the pic
for any text we might be adding.
