[ Music ] ^M00:00:08 >> Brian Tong: Nothing shows you care more than making a CD mix for that special someone. Hey, dude. Check this out. I made this CD mix just for you. >> Oh, OK. Cool. Cool. Well, thanks, man. >> Brian Tong: I'm Brian Tong with CNET.com, and we'll show you how to make it even flashier by printing a CD sleeve for it from iTunes. The first thing you'll need to do is create a playlist in iTunes, and I'm going to name it "My BFF Mix", and then drag and drop songs from your music library onto the playlist that will become your mix CD. If you purchase your songs from an online store, they'll come loaded with album artwork that you can see here in the corner of iTunes, but if you have songs within album art, you can download the images directly from websites like amazon.com or discogs.com. Now, select your song without the album art in iTunes, and drag and drop the picture file into the bond corner, and now your song has artwork. Once you have that all taken care of, you can make your CD sleeve. So we're going to go to file in the menu bar, and then print. You'll see a few different options such as Mosaic and Single Cover, and if you want to really be creative, you can even create your own custom album art, and attach it to songs and create your own personalized CD sleeve. When you're happy with what you've got, print out your CD sleeve, trim down the edges, and you'll be making new friends in no time. >> Brian Tong: Hey, check this out. I made this cool mix, and then I made this custom CD case for you. >> Oh. >> Brian Tong: Pretty cool, huh. >> Cool. Hey, what are you doing right now? >> Brian Tong: I don't know. Nothing. >> Let's go grab a bite, man. >> Brian Tong: Really? >> Yeah. I love you. >> Brian Tong: Cool, man. >> Let's go. >> Brian Tong: I'm Brian Tong for CNET.com with your how-to for printing your own CD sleeves in iTunes. Use it wisely. [ Music ] ^M00:01:36
