Need some input on software

vbimport

#1

I want to get either “Acoustica” or “Sure thing”. I want to add my own jpeg photos as both Backgrounds and as an additional photo or photos, such as a collage, on the disk when I want to. The software supplied with my printer allows the background but not a picture on the disk. The options for text on the disk are also very limited. I know I can use the software to test them for a limited time but I’m looking for some input from the forum members.

I use both. However my personal preference is by far SureThing, Using at this moment while viewing the forum as a matter of fact.

The software that my printer came with is “Sure thing” but I’m sure it’s a cut down version. Which makes me wonder if the full version would be any better.

Don’t get upset at me CDan. HP D5345. I should have listened to all the comments about the poor software supplied by HP. It prints very good on DVDs but the software sure isn’t like my R800.

I was not aware that they had switched to 3rd party software. You should be able to upgrade that OEM version to a full retail version with a discount. Check in the help menu of the software. It may just require a license key to unlock it. I’ve never heard of disc print software that didn’t allow both setting a background image and inserting more images or graphics. Worse case you could create your labels in PhotoShop and import the finished image into the software.

Leave it to HP to come up with a 3rd party software that’s just as bad as the HP software was. :rolleyes:

I’d just go for the SureThing upgrade. Most everyone here really likes it.

That right there is enough to keep me using Epson. I never had anything but trouble from HP printers. The Epson software works fine for almost everything I’ve ever tried to do.
