Putting Photos on CD

Dear Computer Lady,

I need to put some pics on a CD for our church directory.

I have Windows Photo Gallery and Vista. Also, some of the pictures are in my e-mail.

How do I get pics from both places on a CD?

Thank you very much, Sue


Dear Sue,

The first step in getting your pictures onto a CD is to save the email pictures in the same folder as all the other pictures you want to put on the CD.

I can’t tell you exactly how to save the pictures from your email messages because I don’t know what email program you have them stored in, but you can probably click either on the picture itself or on the link to the attachment and save the pictures.

Once you have all your pictures in one folder on your computer, you should be able to open that folder in Windows Photo Gallery, click on one picture, then on your keyboard hold down the “Ctrl” key and tap the letter A (this will select all your photos).

With all your photos selected, click the “Burn” button at the top of the window, and click on “Data Disc…”.

Insert a blank CD or DVD and follow the prompts to finish creating your disc.
