Chapter 6. Sharing Photos > Sharing Photos on Disc

Sharing Photos on Disc

Although creating DVD slideshows is great, a better way to share photos with people who also use iPhoto is to burn the photos to a CD-R or DVD-R disc as files.

To burn an iPhoto disc:

1.
Select the photos you want to share by selecting entire film rolls or entire albums (Figure 6.58).

Figure 6.58. Here I’ve selected several albums, and I’m about to click the Burn button.


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 6.59). The disc icon will be red if it can’t hold the selected photos.

Figure 6.59. 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.
Click the Burn button again, and when iPhoto asks you to confirm one last time, click Burn (Figure 6.60).

Figure 6.60. 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.
