The dimensions of the photo to fit in to the CD/DVD cover are 13.8cm X 11.8cm. To download a blank PSD file of the mentioned dimension, click the icon below.

If photos are printed on 300 matt paper, about 20 can fit in to a DVD cover. One thing to note is that it is better to laminate the photos to prevent them from getting scratches.
