iPhoto starts importing the photos, showing pictures and a progress bar. Click Stop Import to halt if necessary.

✓ Tips

  • iPhoto imports images from Photo CDs at the highest resolution available on the disc (usually 3072 x 2048).

  • You can't erase the contents of the CD after importing because Photo CDs and Picture CDs are read-only.

  • You can also import files from Picture CDs manually by importing files from the Pictures folder on the disc. Don't try to import the entire disc or you'll end up with many unwanted files to delete.

  • It's possible to copy files from Photo CDs for manual importing, but you can't see the necessary Photos folder on the disc in Mac OS X. You may be able to reboot into Mac OS 9, and then locate the folder inside the Photos folder corresponding to the resolution you want to import. Certain Mac OS X utilities may also be able to see the folder.
