[Gimp-user] How can I hide text on a CD label template?

Thats sounds very helpful, I hope it turns out ok.

Going back to your original question, how to hide the writing.

I went back to the DiscMakers site and downloaded their complete
bundle of templates for the various applications they support. One of
them is a Photoshop template, A CMYK .psd file, so does not open in
Gimp. I do have tools to convert that to RGB and is attached.

Nothing complicated with what is provided. Two layers, the outlines
and text, a transparent layer on top. A white bottom layer called
'Your Artwork'. So the answer is put your artwork between those
layers, follow the sizes given in the template. When finished turn the
visibility of the top layer off.

There is also a 'UsersGuide_V1.pdf in the bundle which helps, it says

..quote..Illustration C shows what the proof we send you will look

So you will get to see what it looks like before ordering 1000's.

It turns out they want the CD label background not the circle but the square the
exact same size as the template. So my original question was a misconception I
had. I can't color the template even though it was easy. I have to hide the
template when uploading.

Discmakers told me not to worry about the other templates but to only use the
PDF template which opens fine in GIMP. Alex approved what I sent him, so it
appears I don't need the PDF-X4. I asked him about that. To be safe I'll get
them to mail us proofs before production, so I can really see how it'll turn out
with no variables.
