    Is there anyway I can just crop out the front cover and replace it with a high resolution photo of the film? Sorry for being a newbie and I appreciate all the help you guys give me.

    Thanks again,

    Do you have Photoshop?

    Any version will work for just replacing the front cover.

    Easy way if the cover is 3173 X 1762 will be to use the template below.

    It has the layers setup for you and only needs a few steps.

    1. Open the PSD template file from the unpacked RAR attached here.
    2. Select the bottom layer called 'Place Cover Here'
    3. Go to the file menu and select 'place', browse to the cover and select it.
    4. Select the top layer called 'Place New Front Art Here'.
    5. Go to the file menu and select 'place', browse to the art for the new front and select it.
    6. After it's placed, move-size it how you like.
    7. Select "Save As' from the file menu and save it as a JPG file your done.
    8. Close the template file but don't overwrite it and you can then reuse it for other covers.

    That's as simple as it gets :)
