LightScribe -- a laser disc labeling technology found in many popular brands of disc burners, laptops and PCs -- gives people the ability to easily burn silkscreen-quality photos, graphics, images and text directly onto LightScribe CDs and DVDs. Disc colors include gold CDs and DVDs as well as CDs in red, orange, yellow, blue and green.
To ensure that discs containing clients' images stand out, photographers owning a LightScribe-enabled drive can go to the Photography Kit (www.lightscribe.com/go/create) and download photo label designs, mailers as well as disc sleeve designs.
With the new kit, photographers can create professional custom designs that integrate clients' photos with text so that the discs are personalized and also serve as advertising pieces. With LightScribe, photo archive discs can be labeled with a telltale photo from the collection as well as client information so that they can be found easily with a quick visual reference.
According to professional photographer and exclusive istockphoto contributor Bobbie Osborne, “As a stock photographer that works with models on a regular basis, LightScribe is invaluable. After burning images to CD for my clients' portfolios, I can add a reference picture from the shoot, my contact information and a note of 'permission to reprint' in case they get questioned about printing copyrighted images. It's professional and sexy. My clients and I both love it."
LightScribe, the only widely available embedded disc labeling technology, is licensed to over 75 optical drive and media manufacturers, software developers, media and computer brands worldwide. LightScribe-enabled CDs, DVDs, software, desktops, notebooks, aftermarket optical disc drives and duplicator systems are available at major retailers worldwide, as well as through most leading brands online.
