    You can now start editing the DVD cover template. Start with editing the "Add Text and Graphics" sections by replacing the text with the one related to your contents in your DVD. You can also add pictures from your computer, by clicking the “Insert” menu and then selecting the "Picture From File” option. Apart from that, you can also add clip art by using the "Clip Art” button. The clip art section includes clip arts designed for different needs. For instance, if your DVD includes a video file of your daughter’s birthday party, then you can search for clip art related to birthday, by writing “Birthday” in the search box. Select the clip art of your own choice and insert it in your DVD cover. You can also increase or decrease the size of the clip art or the picture, according to your needs.
