How to Burn Photos to CD Using Nero

by Hal Bartle

Nero Burning ROM is a CD, DVD and Blu-ray disc burning program for your computer. Nero Burning ROM allows you to store your music, videos and data on your preferred media source. If you have digital photographs on your computer that you wish to store and protect from computer failure, you can burn them to a CD as a back-up using Nero. You can also burn photographs to CDs to distribute them to friends and family.

Step 1

Insert a blank CD in your computer's CD-ROM drive.

Step 2

Open the [Nero](https://itstillworks.com/13579368/what-is-nero) Burning ROM software. Either click the icon on your desktop, or locate the file in your list of programs.

Step 3

On the main menu page, select "New," followed by "New Compilation." A "New Compilation" menu window will appear--choose "CD" as the disc medium in the drop-down menu that appears in the top-left corner of the window. After choosing "CD" as the disc medium, click the "New" button that appears in the bottom-right of the "New Compilation" menu window.

Step 4

Choose the picture files or the folders that contain pictures in the File Explorer window on the right. Drag the files to the window on the left. This will create the list of files to burn.

Click the "Burn" button in the task toolbar. This will burn the digital photograph files to the CD.

Tip

  • There is a progress bar at the bottom of the screen that indicates how much information will be stored on the disc and how much room is left on the disc.
