Works Great

I use the Lacie front end, the HP driver binary. I usually run it through twice (i.e. burn twice) because it gets about 10% better. Way back when I had to use Windows (only reason that partition existed, literally), I did the same, burn it twice. Don't worry, that's part of the process, you don't end up with a mishmashed image. I create the actual image using the templates here, or just something random but using the same size in Gimp.
Here is a link to the label gallery.

Once created ( do a convert to black and white to get a true idea how it will look, then undo). What looks great as subtle shades of color while in color might be lost or not as clear in black and white), save it as uncompressed jpg. With the Lacie front end, you can open the image you created, center/expand/shrink, then burn.

NOTE: Sephia comes out really cool on lightscribe CDs.
