Re: Pictures on dvd

Check in your DVD player manual what DVD types and what picture formats it will play. I think that most modern DVD players will accept most DVD formats and jpeg files now.

Put a writeable DVD in the drive. This might well bring up a dialogue box where you can follow instructions to copy your pictures.

If not, on a Windows computer just select the pictures that you want to transfer to the DVD and right click. Keep the cursor on one of the selected pictures when you right click. In the menu that appears select send to DVD drive. Again follow the instructions in the dialogue. In Windows 7 there is a burn option on the banner at the top of the screen.

Another way is to drag and drop your pictures onto the DVD drive icon.

You might be able to copy the folders that your pictures are in to DVD to save time, but try one or two first to make sure that you can view the pictures in the folders.

As home burnt DVDs can deteriorate in time, it is wise to copy them at regular intervals, although doing this will also copy any defects that might have developed. There is no way of knowing how often you should copy them, but every 3 or 4 years ought to be OK. Keep them away from light too.

Re: Pictures on dvd

Another option is to open Windows Media Player, select the burn tab at the top right hand side then drag your folders or pictures into the right hand pane.

Re: Pictures on dvd

Your pictures have to be in a folder on your computer. If they are not, Photoshop will not be able to display them.

Re: Pictures on dvd

If you are using a Windows system, and have the TV system set to PAL, make sure all the images are Jpeg, about 1500 Pix on the longest side,(some TV screen formats will "crop" the images otherwise). Then open the file you want to copy, press the arrow under the caps lock button, left click on the first image and keeping the arrow key down click on the last image, this will select them all. Put a DVD in the drive, (I just use Tesco disks) then right click and select "send to DVD drive" in the drop down, and it will then put up the "what do you want to do" menu. Select use as TV DVD and start the burn.
This may take some time. When it has completed the burn, press eject, it will tell you it is finishing the session, and after a few seconds it will eject the disk, job done.
That is how I do it on the very few times I have saved for TV.
If you click on the folder it will just burn the folder cover and not the images. Hope that helps.

Re: Pictures on dvd

That could be something to do with your DVD player or the format of the DVD or the images.

If you can use CDs OK why not stick with them? Is it a capacity issue?

Re: Pictures on dvd

Your TV will be PAL if you bought it in the UK. Should have no need to change the TV. Sounds like an issue with the disk. I use windows movie maker (free just download it from microsoft) - select the pictures you want from your hard drive in the program, and then burn a dvd from it.

Re: Pictures on dvd

Or maybe skip the CDs / DVDs and use a portable hard drive - check your TV to see if takes USB connection - you can purchase a large capacity hard drive fairly cheaply - put all your pics on there and the view on TV or reconnect to PC if you want to re-edit etc

Always buy the largest capacity you can afford if you take a lot of pics e.g. something in the order of 1 - 3 terabytes is not unusual these days

Re: Pictures on dvd

I just hook my TV up to my laptop with an HDMI cable. You can play movies this same way.
