I have made a few templates for dvd workshop 2, which i work from for my menus. I can e-mail that to you later when i get home.

As for creating menus, it all depends on what you want to know and trying to achieve with the menu itself.

All you really need is a good program like photoshop and several pictures to work from. I am sure LS could do a guide for you, (not one up on digitalfaq)

But i found its best to learn by expermenting yourself and try different ways of doing a menu. Just use photoshop or dvd workshop 2, and experment with the pictures you got untill it works.

Most of my menus is basic menus that works, most of them did need some work in photoshop.

At the moment i am trying something alot more advance and creative that's if i can get it to work the way i want to.

I like the Frasier ones but you might want to check the text on the TV, it looks like it could be a little hard to read. The Rockford Files I liked a lot, that bar that leads out to Season 5 gives a nice designed feel.

The Cheers ones the font looks really nice, not too sure about the background images. But I think you are headed in the right direction.
