View Full Version : Burning photo albums to cd

06-08-2017, 01:40 AM
Running iMac with Sierra 10.12.5 - 8 gb DDR3, 1.4 GHz Intel Core i5

Have extensive photos organized into albums. Would like to copy a number of albums onto a CD or USB Drive for ease of archival.
Have been unable to copy or drag albums into a burn folder or to a USB Drive. Have also been unable to move a number of albums
to a new group folder. Have followed all the instructions in the Finder Help Files. Unfortunately, they don't work (Unless there is something
that they left out, thinking that I should know about it).

Any suggestions?

You can't burn an "Album", but you can create a CD or DVD of the contents of that Album.

Select the photos within the Album, then File > Export > Create Folder > Desktop.

Once you have the photos in your Folder on the Desktop, you will need a CD/DVD burner/player. I'm assuming you don't have an optical drive on your iMac, unless it is very old.

The article below is for iPhoto, but the technique described works for Photos.
