    Problem: Printing DVDs with Photoshop CS using Epson R300 Printer

    I am considering buying an Epson R300 printer especially for printing to
    DVDs.

    Is there a Photoshop CS template to use for the R300?

    What settings do I use to print from Photoshop CS to the DVD?

    The R300 manual does not mention a plug-in for CS. So where do you get the
    plug-in since no mention of it is on the Epson website?

    How smearless is the DVD after it dries for over 24 hours?

    Thank you for the feedback.

  2. The printer driver has a CD selection as the page size. All you need to do
    is create a circle of the appropriete size and fill it. When you go to
    print, choose the options and paper size CD!
    Smearless? Good enough to pack and handle after 4 hours.

  4. It's not a plugin John. It's a printing paper selection for the printer.
    Just like A4 and A5 or Letter size.

    No, you don't need any template for Photoshop or any program *but* you
    will need the Labeler supports whatever printer you are going to use. Epson
    includes their own CD Label Printing program (for Epson Stylus Photo 900 I
    have at least) or you can use third party program like SureThing (I use
    this) and it has template for many CD Printers.
    You don't want to use Photoshop to print CD label, so no setting needed.
    If you really want to (mess with it) then just print like you print on
    regular paper would do.
    Of course it doesn't because it isn't the job of Photoshop.
    No, you will need a special Inkjet Printable DVD or CD, and the ink should
    dry right away just like you print on regular paper. If you use wrong type
    (like Thermal printable then it will never dry, si make sure to get Inkjet
    Prinable DVD)

    So, if the R300 has built-in option to print CD/DVD directly like Epson
    900 does, then it should come with software and option to Print CD/DVD. I
    have printed nearly thousand DVD/CD with Epson Stylus Photo 900 here, and
    love it.
