How to Put Pictures On a CD From the Computer

By Chappy Sinclair

Using Windows Explorer, your computer's files management system, you can put pictures on a CD without the use of additional software. The pictures on the CD can then be transferred and uploaded to another computer. You will need an internal or external CD burner. Any CD rewritable (CD-RW) or DVD rewritable (DVD-RW) drive will work. Any type of photo file can be added to the CD.

Things You'll Need

  • Blank CD-R
  • CD-RW or DVD-RW disk drive

Step 1

Insert the blank CD-R into your disc drive.

Step 2

Click the "Start" button in the Windows taskbar. Click "My Computer."

Step 3

Double click the name of the drive that you inserted the CD-R into. This will open a blank window.

Step 4

Drag and drop the pictures that you want on the CD into the blank window. These files will be listed as "Files Ready to Be Written to the CD."

Step 5

Click the "Write to CD" button.
