    I want to burn an iphoto album onto a cd so that i can take it to my local printers but i know that iphoto likes to place thumbnails and other extras onto the CD when i go to burn the album.

    just wondering if there is a way to disable this in iphoto so that if i burn an album of 200 photos to a cd i just get a CD with 200 photos and nothing else.

    all help is appreciated.

    Thank you

    You could try putting in a blank CD in, so it comes up in the finder and just drag your photos to it directly.

    I had a funny feeling that would be the only way.

    Thanks

    Try closing out of iPhoto first.

    hmm, maybe drag them to a regular folder first, then off to the CD

    Export your folder to your desktop, close iPhoto then drag the folder to the disc??
