Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker Now Has Transparency Control!

Version 3.15 of Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker  now lets you set the transparency for text backgrounds, images and shapes! Just drag a slider to blend them with the background. It's great for making text more readable against a high-contrast background or for just giving your labels a sleeker look. It's easy to use: for shapes and images, just click on the object and then drag the slider on the object toolbar to change the opacity; for text backgrounds, click on the text object and then choose the Set Background Color/Opacity option from the Text menu.

Version 3.15 also supports PNG images with alpha channels and adds two new modes for colored shapes: inverted mode, which draws a heart-shaped (or diamond-shaped, or star-shaped, etc.) frame wherever you want to put it; and outline mode, which draws the outline but doesn't color in the center of your chosen shape. You can play with the thickness of a shape's frame or outline by choosing the Inverted Shape Margins and Border Thickness options, respectively, on the Shape menu.

New in version 3.14! Print to multiple LightScribe drives at once: If you've got more than one LightScribe drive, you can turn your computer into your own virtual disc duplicator. Print multiple copies of a disc label at once, or print different labels on each of your drives simultaneously. Acoustica CD/DVD Label Maker can use as many LightScribe drives as you've got.
