    I need some computer help. I'm trying to make cd

    covers. Nothing too elaborate. All I wanna do is

    type the track listing on Wordpad in some cool

    looking font and print it out. I dl'ed a little

    program that will resize any jpeg file to the

    right size(CDCoverprint)but it has to be a jpeg

    file. Is there any way to turn a Wordpad document

    into jpeg? I know there is probably some insanely

    easy way to do this, but I'm not a smart man,

    Jenny. Thanks in advance for your help. Don't be

    offended by the geek comment, I wish I was smart

    enuf to be called geek.
    By the way, I'm not real good with baby-steps. My specialty is ass-kicking. -DLR

    Shouldn't use WordPad, use Paint or something like that; WordPad generates text files, but Paint or comparable programs (like Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro) are bona fide image programs.

    If you wanted, you could cheat: Open up your file in WordPad, make all your text appear on screen, then hold the Alt key and press Print Screen - this takes a dump of your screen onto the clipboard. Then open Paint up, and use the select tool (the dotted rectangle icon) to select the area where the text is. After you've done that, Edit-Copy that to the clipboard, then make a new image (It'll ask you to save the old one; don't). Then Edit-Paste, and wham - it's a cheater method, but you've got your wordpad stuff in an image format.
    I'm one of those crazies on your block.

    Go to

    http://www.download.com

    and search for "CD cover." I bet you'll find piles of shareware you can download and use to print out all the CD covers you like, or anything else, for that matter. I'm a cheapskate, and I'm always getting software from download.com. I know there's shareware on there for making the CD labels themselves.

    If you just want to use WordPad, make your list, then hit "Print Screen," which copies a screenshot of your monitor to the clipboard. Paste it into a graphics program, and resize it as you see fit. Then print it out.

    Good luck!
