    Hi all.
    I have some 1700 plus photos in my main Iphoto library. I want to just copy all of the photos to the root of a DVD. I have a superdrive etc. Is there an easy way to do this without having to put then in seperate albums. I am using Iphoto 3 on latest version of Panther.

    you mean iPhoto 4 :) There is no iPhoto 3

    look in your Photos folder inside your user folder. (/Users/(username)/Photos) There should be a folder called "iPhoto Library", and you can copy that over to the DVD. On the other side I think you can use the "Burn" feature to do that, I dont know if you can do that with your entire library though.

    Just drag user->pictures->iPhoto Library to your blank CD/DVD and burn it. If you don't want to keep the folder organization then open iPhoto, go into the library, and hit command-a to highlight all the pictures. Then drag that mess over to the blank CD/DVD. That ought to do it.
