Version 2.5.4.2 of Karaoke CD+G Creator adds a way to precisely synchronize Title and Credits images. This feature was available before, but did not work as expected.

To set the exact time the image should be displayed you need to open Title or Credits image properties from CD+G Settings or Create CD+G File windows and set appropriate values in Synchronization settings.
