Is it possible to make the artwork have like, a jewel case look to it? Like add the spine and the reflection of the plastic cover? I've included a little mockup that i made, it just doesnt include the gloss (i couldn't figure it out in ps)

I think you can do it using Panel Stack Splitter, and exploiting the "forced layout" feature, to stack one panel (the jewel case png picture with transparency) on top of another (the actual cover).

edit: not sure whether PPS requires Columns UI to work, though

It's pretty easy to do in panelstack, the hardest part really is making the case in photoshop. you can use a semi transparent circle for the gloss.

spine_w is the width of the cd spine, disc.png is the cd case.

CODE
$puts(spine_w,20)
$imageabs($get(spine_w),0,$sub(%_width%$get(spine_w)),%_height%,%path%,artreader nokeepaspect)
$imageabs(0,0,%_width%,%_height%,path\to\disc.png,nokeepaspect)

How can I get this to work? I want to display the album art in a jewel case.

Where is the forced layout feature. Where do I put that code?

Thanks !
