The process of burning photos to a CD on a Mac is an extremely easy one, with the help of Macintosh’s convenient “Burn Folder” application. In a few simple steps, you’ll be able to store up to 700 megabytes of photos on a single CD-R.

Click “File,” and select “Create New Burn Folder.”

Name the burn folder to represent the photos you are storing on it.

Double-click on the new burn folder to open it in the Finder.

Select the photos you would like to burn to the CD, and drag and drop them into the burn folder. When finished adding photos, click “Burn.”

Insert a blank CD-R into your computer when prompted, and your computer will proceed to burn the photos onto the CD.

Eject the CD when finished.
