About Jacket Pictures

Jacket pictures are an optional part of the DVD-Video specification and are intended to
allow a DVD player to display a graphic representing a DVD. Jacket pictures are most
commonly displayed on multi-disc players.

Based on the DVD specification, Jacket Picture graphics should be supplied in three
different resolutions (small, medium, and large) for display on different platforms and
display devices. DVD Studio Pro automatically generates the required graphics and the
folder that holds them, JACKET_P, when you build your project.

To add a jacket picture to your project


Import the graphic to use for the jacket picture into the Assets tab.


Choose the jacket picture graphic from the Asset pop-up menu in the Disc Inspector’s
Advanced tab.

The jacket picture will appear in the Simulator when you stop playback.
