    Personally I find all the bespoke programs, well the few i have tried, irritatingly simplistic and sometimes buggy.

    I use a desk top publishing package, microsoft publisher.

    I use Paint Shop Pro 9. It's a breeze.

    For best results I find doing the image work in Photoshop (CS2) then import that into Illustrator (CS2) to do the typesetting. Best of both worlds that way.

    As for size. The easiest thing is to just take a DVD off your shelf and measure the sleeve dimensions.

    I do have a template at home seperating out the back, front and spine I'll be willing to share. It's a .ai file that you can suck into Photoshop and add further layers to. PM me if you want it.
