Figleaf lets you generate print covers for audio CDs

Say hello to Figleaf, a solution for quickly generating and printing inlets/covers and backcovers for audio CDs.

Figleaf reads the tracklist from MP3 folders or from the CD Remote Database; you'll need a CDDB aware application to get the tracknames from the CDDB. For emusic albums it will automatically get the cover from emusic; otherwise, it will search Google or other search sites for the cover.

Figleaf, made with the REALbasic editing environment from Real Software Inc., generates the title and playing time for each track. If possible, if will retrieve the album title and artist name, as well as the cover image. It can generate an inlet and a back cover for standard CD jewel cases.

The application automatically sizes the font to fit the full tracklist, according to author Thomas Hassan. However, with some fonts and certain CDs (such as those with very long tracknames), you may get less than desirable results. Figleaf prints the artist and album on the front cover, or, if you wish, the image only. It can optionally print cropmarks and borders. With Figleaf, you can add notes, and even have the app calculate the total playing time.

However, Figleaf doesn't print to CD Inlet stationery like Avery or Zweckform. It's designed for "plain paper and scissors only," Hassan said. Figleaf is shareware and costs US$14.50 to register. The basic standard layout is available for unregistered users; any additional options need a valid registration. It's now available for downloading.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
