While I am not sure who produced the labels I have, I did manage to
download the Avery software. Thank you.

Thank you also to John Foust for his suggestions and everyone else
who replied.

I was able to transfer the image from the ".tif" files that I was sent (THANK

YOU - you know who you are) to both of the labels in the template of CD
labels. But when I printed the file on a blank sheet of paper, I was
that the quality is rather poor compared to the original RT-11 CD label that
I already have. This was NOT the fault of the scan, but of the conversion
software. I assume that the original label which uses only normal characters

of 3 different sizes was able to avoid the problem.

The other difficulty is that the actual images of the labels are not
aligned with the location of where the physical label is located on the sheet

which holds the actual sticky labels. While the offset is only about 1/4",
that distance is quite noticeable. But when I attempt to use the Avery
program, there does not seem to be anything I can do to shift the labels.
Can anyone suggest anything from their experience? This is using
Windows 98 SE where I am a dummy!!

Sincerely yours,

Jerome Fine
