Masking An Image

You can apply a mask from the Inspector by clicking Mask and choosing a shape.

Masks can also be applied and edited in the Effects window under Available Filters: Composite: Mask. For more details, see "Using Effects".

Applying Image Effects

You can access a wide range of image effects in DiscLabel. Click Image Effect to open the Effects window. See "Using Effects" for details on applying effects to images.


You can import an image of any size and scale it in DiscLabel to effectively get any resolution you want. So, for example, a 1500 x 1500 image at 72dpi, when scaled across a 5" disc will yield 300 dpi, and a 750 x 750 image at 72dpi will yield 150 dpi, etc.

If you import PDF line art into DiscLabel you can still scale and crop it. The picture will scale to maximize use of the resolution of the output device.
