Backing Up Your Photos

The most important thing you can do when managing your photos is to make a backup.

To back up photos:

1.
Select the photos you want to back up, best done by selecting entire film rolls or entire albums (Figure 2.24).

Figure 2.24. Ignore the info pane for now, but note the Burn button in the lower-right corner.


2.
Click the Burn button.

iPhoto asks you to insert a blank disc.

3.
Insert a blank disc, and click OK.

In the info pane, iPhoto shows the name of the disc and information about how much data will be burned to the disc (Figure 2.25). The disc icon will be red if it can’t hold the selected photos.

Figure 2.25. Once you’ve clicked the Burn button, the info pane lets you name your disc and gives you information about how much data will be burned to it.


4.
Select fewer or more photos to use the space on your destination disc as desired.

5.
Change the name of the disc if you want.

6.
When everything looks right, click the Burn button again to start the burn, and when iPhoto asks you to confirm one last time, click Burn (Figure 2.26).

Figure 2.26. iPhoto verifies that you really want to burn a disc with one last warning dialog.


iPhoto creates a disk image, copies the selected photos to it, and burns the disc.
