Other backup options

  • Copy your iPhoto Library (remember that it's in your Pictures folder) to an external hard disk.

  • Use a dedicated backup program, such as EMC Dantz's Retrospect Desktop (www.dantz.com), to back up your iPhoto Library folder (and while you're at it, I recommend backing up your Home folder, or even your entire Mac).

  • Export photos to folders in the Finder, then manually burn them to CD or DVD to back them up with your desired organizational approach. It's more work, but you get exactly what you want at the end.

Burn Options

I always recommend that you select Verify Burn for safety; if you have trouble burning, try reducing the burn speed.

The options for erasing media and leaving a disc appendable apply only to rewritable media like CD-RW (but iPhoto won't erase no matter what; use Disk Utility).

The choice of ejecting the disc after burning or mounting it on the Desktop is minor, though I recommend a quick visual inspection of the contents of the disc in iPhoto after burning.
