Ashampoo Cover Studio 2.0
Optical disc label and jewel case insert designers don't come any friendlier than Ashampoo Cover Studio 2.0.
- Offers everything you'll need to design CD case labels
- Annoying internet menu
All in all, Ashampoo Cover Studio should cover just about anyone's disc labelling needs. Our only minor complaint is the internet menu with a whopping seven items pointing to Ashampoo including "Recommend the program to a friend." That's all harmless enough, but as always with Ashampoo software, if you download the trial from the Softonics site they point you to, be careful that you click on the correct link for the free download, avoiding the misleading advertising and obnoxious attempts to sell you a "fast" download.
Price$ 31.99 (AUD)
Ashampoo Cover Studio walks you through the design process, allows free placement of objects such as text labels, tables and images, and also lets you import your own artwork. We wouldn't have mentioned that last, but there have actually been programs, Sonic's Express Labeler for example, that send you to a website to buy stuff instead.
If your images are in good shape, Ashampoo Cover Studio can turn them into beautiful CD labels and jewel case covers.
Ashampoo Cover Studio also frees you from stepping outside the program to acquire data; it imports data from cameras and scanners, discs, network or internet locations, as well as the Windows file system.
The editing tools are top-notch as far as they go, but there are no image editing functions so your imported images should already be up to snuff. Lightscribe is supported and the program will create playlists and title lists from the data on the disc you're creating a label or cover for.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
