I want to give some photos, currently on my PC, to a friend = so that he can use them in a DVD he's making. What's the best way to do this - Email or putting them on a CD. If the latter, how do I do this please?
If the photos are for viewing on screen only, a resolution of 72dpi is fine and the files will be quite small. However if you want to print them they are best at 300dpi and an A4 would be quite big so a number sent by e mail together would take a long time.If making a CD you need a bit of software to burn a Data CD .Make a folder and copy the pix you want into it, (making sure it does not exceed the cd capacity). Then burn the cd . I use Roxio Creator 2010, but there are free burning programmes , I think.
Many ways of doing this, email may take a time if the file sizes are large and there are lots of them, thou you can reduce the file size when emailing them, but this would reduce the quality. Burning them to CD is reasonably easy but this depends on the software you have, it can be done with Windows Media player quite easily, select the photos you want, and hit the burn buttom.
