    Created a CD cover which has a white background. I'm printing on white
    paper, so it's hard to know where to cut. Is there a simple way to
    print with some sort of guides, or a very thin border around the image?

  2. To print crop marks: File -> Print with preview, select "Output" from
    the drop-down menu at the bottom left of the preview window, tic
    "Corner Crop Marks" (Alt M)

    To create a thin Border: Set the foreground color to default (black),
    Select All (Ctrl A), Edit->Stroke, Width 1 or 2 px Inside.

    Thanks for the great advice! I also discovered the Border function
    under Output (on CS2 anyway) which let me print a very thin border (I
    set it at .1 mm, but I think it's a little thicker) around my image.

    Hi, When I am printing CD covers I use the Create Label function inside
    Roxio. It can be set to print "Folding and Cutting Guides"

    Most other Burning Programs I have used, also have this facility when
    Printing.
