If your computer is compatible with LightScribe technology, you will be able to burn a picture directly onto a CD with silkscreen-printed quality, without the mess of sticky labels. Burning a picture onto a CD is a simple task that almost anyone can do, even those with little-to-no computer experience. If your computer is compatible with LightScribe your writing software such as Roxio, Sonic or Nero will work with LightScribe to complete the task in only a few steps.

Step 1

Launch the writing software that came with your computer. Quite often the software is either Roxio, Nero or Sonic Record Now. Whatever software you use will work the same with LightScribe.

Step 2

Click on "Label Creator" and then "Add Image" on the "Add Object or Picture" menu. Browse your computer for the picture you want to burn to the CD and then click "OK."

Step 3

Insert a LightScribe disk into your computer, label side down.

Step 4

Click "File" and then "Print" to burn the picture to the CD.

Step 5

Select "Best" for the print quality and then "OK." Your selected picture will now be burned to the CD.
