I need Speaker Fulfillment Services to put a teleseminar I'm doing on CD. Which means I need to design the CD label.
I'm NOT a designer and am having such trouble with this...
I downloaded a CD label template and am using GIMP to do this. SFS tells me that the CD label needs to be 5.188" x 5.188" and 300 DPI.
In GIMP, if I change the DPI, it, I can't make it exactly 5.188" x 5.188" It will go to 4.72"
I have NO idea how to make it do what I need it to do and it's driving me CRAZY! I've seen good reviews of GIMP online when I've done searches for help on this issue, but I can't seem to make it work for me. I'm sure it's my incompetence, but I have no idea how to meet their requirements.
Can someone please tell me how to do this? I'm close, but no cigar and I can't turn this in to SFS until it meets their requirements. (And the design is super simple. Nothing fancy. But the size and resolution are still creating a problem for me!)
I'd appreciate any help you anyone might be able to give me.
P.S. I know DPI means dots per inch, which translates into pixels per inch (PPI), correct? I hope I'm doing this right!
