When jusing these templates, bee in mind that those editable "smart layers" are a bit off-center. Squere them up, and it's easier to line up the art. Special the cdarts. (If you are using the CDart tremplate from the fanart.tv, just save the cdart without the "outer ring" layer. Then you are ready to Rock & Roll :) (take a look here: https://www.theaudiodb.com/album/2290118)
