    Hi everyone my name is Alexia and I am from Melbourne Australia, I am hoping if someone can please help me with this urgent question.

    I personally don't have a Mac as yet but am hoping for one next year, my brother-inlaw does, but my sister does not know how to use the computer very well and she lives in Queensland, so I offered to find out for her...Cut the story short,

    She had photos of her son on the computer she wishes to copy to a cd, she has a burner, I know that for a fact..

    I need to find out if anyone can tell me in simple form how to explain to her how to transfere the photos on to disk...

    The computer is a desk top..

    Thank you so much :) for your understanding

    is the computer a mac or a pc because if it is a pc if you insert a blank cd it should sort of mount and then she should just have to right click all the photos she wants to put on the disk and then right click the disk and select burn
    or
    if its a mac insert the cd drag and drop the cd's on to the cd's icon and the click the burn icon within finder and then it will burn it to the cd

    Hope all this helps

    Do you know if she uses iPhoto? If she does, it's simply a matter of selecting the photos she wants, putting them in an album (just like music playlists in iTunes) and then in the "Share" menu select "Burn disc".

    Hope that helps!
