How to Put Pictures On a CD From the Computer

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.
