I hope I got the right forum. I kinda lost and this is my first time here.
Geee I really hate "My Image Garden" But I don't know it or how to do things. I scan something, then have to drag it to my desktop then re-name it and file it. What a pain!
Okay first off, I'm on a 2008 iMac and the printer is the MG6320 black, replacing an old Epson R280. Loved that one cause I could print 3x5 cards, the Print CD program nad a ton of disk templates. But Canon never could sell the disc print feature I understand due to some patent issues, but I understand it was sold in Europe with the function.
Well now I got the Canon printer and it does quite nice. It's wireless on a netwwork of 3 Macs and 1 PC, haha
Anyway okay I found the disk templates. Oh yea all 3 of them ha ha. But I have a ton of generic templates on my computer.
Question is can I and how would I be able to add some more disk templates. Canon support says they don't offer any more templates.

Yes, this drove me nuts!!!! I know how to do all these things and hate all the 'pre-cast' options in Image Garden.
Not sure about templates but I can at last print my own custom-made labels.
I finally found out how to do this by doing a web search. I found the answer on YouTube - not a Canon site!!!
I prepare my label in Photoshop - sized 12cm x 12cm and save it as a jpeg file in a folder named 'Disc labels'. This is because Image Garden only likes to look at photos!!!!!
Then, I open the 'print disc' function in the Quick Menu. I navigate through my folders of photos until I find the disc labels one.
Right click on the label you want and you are offered several options, one of which is 'print disc label'!!!!!! And - off you go.
You can customise your images, design and text as YOU want them - not as those dreadful templates dictate!
But ..... the Quick Menu has just decided not to work so I am looking for answers in another forum now!!!!!

HA! so funny because now my Image Garden stopped working. Won't load a new template for a disk.
I found out a few things since writing my question. When you go to new item then disk, yes it shows 3 samples. But behind those which I can see but not load are quite a few variations of those 3 samples.
But as yet I can't get them to work together.
I'm not really a Photoshop guy; I prefer the old Paint Shop Pro from when Jasc made it before selling it to Corel. That's the only reason I still keep an old PC here with XP" Pro. Right now I"m trying to learn Pixelmator on the Mac and so far it doesn't seem too bad.
But I just went to Mavericks and am having some minor problems to iron out.

Lovely printer .... so user unfriendly. And takes an age to get ready to print every time.
I am very experienced but ..... I cannot edit the text boxes as all the YouTube etc. guides say ... the 'edit text' box is simply not available. Yes, I can edit the text within the boxes but cannot edit the box size, position etc.
It took me a day to figure out how to put images into disc projects ... bu no way to adjust text .... simply a statement that says text edit may not be available in certain templates .... weird?
Please help .... I am simply wasting valuabletime.
