    I've made a rather simple CD label for 3.15 and included the PSD file so that you can bump up the version numbers. This is my first ago after a long break from Photoshop, it's not exactly my best work, I'll have something much better available soonish. It should be 600 DPI, the dimensions should be correct for most printable CDs.

    Sure, but it'll get outdated pretty soon so include the link to https://www.deviantart.com/macsix/art/MorphOS-3-CD-label-871059522 - the PNG and PSD files will be updated regularly on DeviantArt. Cheers, Mac.

    It should, I'll amend it later. Edit - now updated.

    Great work, maybe you could build a b/w version to laser print it directly on cd.
    I’m not sure but there were some drives who did this job for some brand selected CD/DVD supports.

    Nice work, but is there a way that I can download it without having to setup a DeviantArt account?

    Did you give anyone else permission to host the image file? Edit: I see that you said "sure" to Papiosaur, so hopefully he will have it hosted soon.

    I didn't know there was a requirement to register, that's annoying. I've tested it as visitor/unregistered user and at least the full res PNG is downloadable without registration requirement, only the PSD requires registration, unfortunately I have no control over it. Everyone can use, modify, redistribute, as long as no restrictions are placed on the copies and modifications. Nobody is allowed to charge money for copies and modifications. I've updated the original post with the details.

    Lightscribe? Nah, I don't think anyone uses them anymore. And this is why the source PSD file is supplied, up the contrast, move saturation to 0% and bob's your uncle.

    Just playing with another deviation before leaving for work...

    I'll probably post a few more deviations (variations) for MorphOS, Chrysalis and SDK this coming weekend under https://www.deviantart.com/disc-labels-covers

    Requests - let me know before Friday.

    If you supplied the CD label both with and without the version number, and year (2021 removed - as 1999 will always apply) on it then anyone could just use it for now, and when a new version comes out, and/or dates change then modify it as required, as MorphOS is updated.

    You may even want to do later versions yourself, which would be nice, as long as you're still a MorphOS user, which seems likely with your hardware profile, with no need for anyone here to become a member at DeviantArt to download the PSD file.

    The rest of the label could remain the same, as most users will be able to add on the "version number" change to year released, with a graphic/DTP package of somekind, such as, Sketch, RNOPublisher, Folio being just a few ideas of how to add on the version number, and release date to the main CD image you've supplied.

    If you want to do more then a CD case inlay front and back sheet to keep such a CD in would be really nice, and would be something I would definitely use.

    I should also mention that, as a word of caution to all, sometimes printing/attaching a label to a CD seems to have an adverse effect on some available CD-R/RWs, as the adhesive that is used, the glue on the disc label, seems to affect/deteriorate the plastic of the CD after a period of time/over the years.

    I have had a few CDs, such as Image FX v4.5, ProPage v4 go faulty which I can only put down to the glue/adhesive on the back of the label affecting them, making the CD go brittle as well. The ImageFX CD was a TDK brand which is generally regarded as a good media brand, and I have had 2 of those fail, so making a backup copy of my original Image FX CD, when I first bought it, turned out to be a good idea it seems.

    Just a suggestion or few, if that's OK. :-D

    Yeah sure, I'll take that on board. By the way, I only print CDs directly on my printer, I've got the Epson 1430 which prints directly on the CD surface, this way you don't glue anything on a CD. I can't even apply a floppy label straight.

    I'll think about CD or DVD covers. Unfortunately for the next month or so I'll be tied up running Azure webinars, so I may have to come back to it later.

    I use LightScribe. When I have time I will give this a whirl in my drive.
