Free Ashampoo Cover Studio!

Ashampoo Cover Studio is a program that allows you to create covers for DVD/CD cases, covers and booklets. Here is the software description from the developer:

Do you still label your CDs and DVDs with handwritten scribbles? It doesn’t look good but creating good-looking labels is such a drag – first you have to figure out a complicated program, then you have to spend half an hour “designing” something that looks halfway decent.
Enter Ashampoo Cover Studio, the new disc label designer for everyone. It guides you step by step and will have you producing great-looking discs, booklets, covers and cases in no time. Just follow the directions, choose the look you like and print.
Ashampoo Cover Studio also supports modern direct-to-disc printers that eliminate the hassle and fuss of applying labels to your discs.

Point and click or design your own

The new Ashampoo Cover Studio comes with a stack of professional themes and it can import track and data lists directly from the disc you want to label. For fast results you can use point-and-click design – or you can use your own graphics and do everything your own way.

If you’ve ever struggled with label design software you’ll be amazed at how easy it can be. Just enter a title and any other data and then select one of the pre-designed themes. Your data is entered in the theme automatically and you’re ready to print.

  • Point-and-click label design
  • Ready-to-use themes – just enter your title data
  • Import track data from your disc
  • Design and create:
    • Disc labels
    • Booklets
    • Covers for jewel cases, slim cases, DVD and Blu-ray cases
  • Add your own backgrounds, text objects, images and data tables
  • Fast alignment and editing tools for images and text

Features and functions

The entire program is designed as an interactive guide. You just select what you want to print – for example a printable disc, a label, a booklet or a case cover – and click Next. Then you will be guided to get the results you want.

  • Supports all standard disc, case and booklet and label formats
    You can design and print printable discs (DVD, CD, Blu-ray), jewel cases, slim cases, Blu-ray cases and booklets.
  • Use modern direct-to-disc printers
    Printing directly onto printable discs means no messy label alignment with special tools.
  • Import your track data from your discs
    Reads the track data from your discs directly into pre-formatted tables in your design. Gets the artist and track data online in seconds.
  • Point-and-click design with themes
    For fast results just enter or import your title and track data, select a theme and print. That’s all there is to it and the program comes with a set of great-looking themes.
  • Design your own if you want
    If you’re feeling creative you can also create your own designs from scratch. Choose and use your own backgrounds, graphics and fonts, create curved text and add data and contents tables.

Please note the following:

  • This is not intended for creating eCovers; covers you create with Ashampoo Cover Studio are meant to be physically printed out.
  • If you already have Ashampoo Burning Studio 2009 Advanced, ABS09A has Cover Studio features already built in; in fact the Cover Studio built into ABS09A looks like it has a couple of extra features as opposed to this standalone version.
  • This is Ashampoo Cover Studio not Ashampoo Cover Studio 2.

Ashampoo Cover Studio works on Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7. You can grab it by doing the following:

2009-08-30_153412

Make sure you have “Get fullversion key…” checked. Click “Next” and finish installing.

  • After installation has finished, the registration page should open in your default browser. The registration page will be in German. You can change it to English by clicking on the USA flag located at the very top of the page…

2009-08-30_155604

…or visit the English registration page directly by clicking here.

  • At the registration page you will be asked to fill out a short form. You are only required to fill in your e-mail address:

2009-08-30_153640

When entering an e-mail address keep two things in mind:

  1. Hotmail e-mail addresses are not supported by Ashampoo. Don’t ask me why.
  2. Ashampoo spams. So either use one of your spam e-mails, or make use of Mailinator, 10MinuteMail, or Trashmail anti-spam services. My suggestion would be to use a spam e-mail because you are bound to want to get more Ashampoo freebies in the future and having an Ashampoo account is handy.

If you already have an Ashampoo account just enter that e-mail. If this is the case you will also be asked to login.

  • After you have registered check your e-mail for an e-mail from “Ashampoo <MrReg@ashampoo.com>” with the subject of “Ihre Registrierung – Ashampoo® Cover Studio (F_cbo_de) (Deutsch)”. In the e-mail you will find your registration code:

2009-08-30_153811

Copy the code.

  • Run Cover Studio if you closed it or go back to it if you have it open. You should be prompted to register the software. Do so:

2009-08-30_153830

2009-08-30_153850

2009-08-30_153854

  • Enjoy your new, and free, Ashampoo Cover Studio:

      Hi Ashraf. I have Ashampoo Burning Studio 2010, which I got from here. I am interested in Ashampoo Cover Studio, and before I could consider downloading it, I would like to konw if ABS 2010 has also a built in Ashampoo Cover Studio just like ABS09A. If ABS10 comes with Ashampoo Cover Studio, then that would be good because I don’t have to download this Ashampoo Cover Studio. Please reply,Thank you.

      FYI: You may want to be careful adding a label to a CD or DVD that you plan to use in a slot load player. The additional thickness may make them run pretty hot. At least it did in our car, after playing one it slowed down enough to distort the audio a bunch.

      As always Thanks very, very Big. I have lots of Full Version Software from Ashampoo and know that they do a very Beautiful job with their Software. You are always coming through for us on this Site and that’s what keep driving us back. Good looking out.

      I find it EXTRAORDINARILY INCONSIDERATE to expect someone to take the time to repeat themselves simply because you don’t want to take the time to read the information they troubled themselves to give you!!! I can MAYBE understand not wanting to read thru pages of posts (which is NOT relevant in this case), but when your question has specifically been answered in the body of the review, it is incredibly disrepectful of the reviewer’s time to ask the question he has already clearly answered….and then to go on to reprimand him for complaining about it!! When you get FREE advice from an EXPERT on a DAILY basis, the LEAST you can do is take the time to read what he wrote for you. If you are not willing to do even that, then do the research yourself or pay an expert to do it for you. If you have made a significant financial contribution to this site, my apopogies to you. If not, you definitely owe Ashraf an apology…..:-)….!!

      Ashraf: You should make yourself a hotkey that says something like: “Please see above review for answer to your question.”

      I know you were sincere and meant well, but you sound just like my Mom.

      Whatever their reason, people just don’t read. It’s a fact of life on the internet. :D

      In my work I reply to lots of repetitive questions about already answered topics everyday, all day long.
      I find it more expedient and stressless to simply repeat or quote the same answer without any pointless comments.

      The end result is: less work for me, everybody feels gratified and nobody feels hurt nor stupid.

      Think nothing of it. It’s only my way.

      Sorry Ashraf, I didn’t mean to sound stupid, I have many feeds and sites I follow and it is impossible to read every post. I have a lot of questions and forgive me if I annoyed the HECK out of you by being curious about the freebie of today. I do not take offense to what you said, but I feel that you could have been more discreet, that’s all. I will continue to visit this site for freebies, but as far as posting, I think that I will take a break from doing that.

      @Win7Guru: Please don’t take this personally (no offense intended) but it annoys the HECK out of me when people do not read what I wrote then end up asking a question that I already answered.

      I quote this from above:

      This is not intended for creating eCovers; covers you create with Ashampoo Cover Studio are meant to be physically printed out.

      So no it is not similar to either of the two programs you mentioned.

      @Alalata: You are welcome.
