A Hard drive for sharing PC and Mac

I'm new, so please forgive...
I have pictures on a PC and I have pictures on a Mac. I want to simply store all of them on the same external hard drive for posterity. I wish to view them and print them and occasionally put them on a DVD or a USB stick for travel.
I use my Mac 99% of the time, if that helps.
I am by no means a computer tech, but get along fine with good instruction.
P.S. I realise I started all but one sentence with the pronoun "I."

Format the drive as FAT32 and you can use it on Mac and PC without issues for the most part. The limitation is that you can't write a file larger than 4GB to a device that is formatted as FAT32. I doubt you will have an image that large but...you never know.死神はリンゴしか食べない。
