Re: DVD Covers Cut off
With mine, the front and back covers are 1019x1450, and the spine is 63x1450, but I use small (7mm) DVD cases, and depending on your printer, you may need different. You could try them as a start, but just do the linework (as I talk about below) and try 126x1450 for the spine (Assuming you're using a standard DVD case)
*Some of this may or may not make sense, depending on your knowledge of graphic designing)
What I did was I took a piece of cardboard and traced out a DVD case (including notches/bends where the edges of the spine are), then I scanned that onto my computer. Then, I opened that scan in Gimp(My personal preference to Photoshop) and went over those lines properly on a new layer. Then I deleted the original scan layer and saved the new lines as a .PNG. I then put those lines on a blank canvas, which was 2147x1595 (The size of a standard 8x11 piece of paper. When I set it in Gimp it only comes out to be a relatively small image), and printed it and cut it out to see if it fit. It was trial and error really. Probably a lot more work than necessary, but at least at a huge image size, it prints as you see and isn't stretched and pixelated. There could be printer settings that you need to change too. (For example, with my printer, I need to uncheck a box that says "Fit to Page" when I print).
