    Hi folks -

    I would like to get a piece of software for my iMac that will allow me
    to burn jpegs to a CD or DVD with the ability for slideshow.

    I do not want to use iPhoto. I want the files to be the original files,
    at full original resolution.

    My goal is to be able to prepare disks with my photographs on them
    that I can hand someone, they can put the disk in the optical drive
    on their computer (or their DVD player) and view the images on the disk,
    but I want the original JPEG files on the disk.

    Nothing fancy, just an image slideshow. No music, frames, etc. Just
    the images playing on a slideshow or click to advance the jpegs, something
    like that.

    thanks !! Chris

    What you asked for is easily done using the Finder:
    1. Insert blank disc. Disc icon mounts on the Desktop.
    2. Drag your photographs to the disc icon.
    3. Burn the disc.

    He's looking to make an Autorun slideshow and this will move the images but they will still need to be opened manually one at a time. The op wants to insert disk>view slideshow.

    iMovie might be able to do this. I've seen it used for time-laps, which is essentially a slideshow of stills.

    I did something like this with Flash, but that's overkill.

    Autorun is a Windows thing and a major security issue to boot. Macs do not autorun applications from removable storage.

    I know, but that's the concept behind what he wants to do.

    Yes, "auto run" was what I had in mind.

    I guess I'll just continue to burn the jpg's to a
    disk and hand that to them.

    thanks !
