  Are these JPG files? or Canon RAW?
Either way, once they are on your C: drive, you should be able to use a CDROM-burning utility to make a copy of them on CDROM---but Canon's software cannot do that for you, as far as I know.

  As Christopher said, your computer should be capable of burning a CD. Insert a new CD into the CD appartus (you know, the one that looks like a cupholder:)) and your CD program should begin. You will need to open your file then select the photos you want to put on the CD, then select "burn" and you should be off and running!

  82 .  Playing a DVD
I have copied photos onto a DVD-R and wanted to play them in a standard DVD player on a tv screen, but it won't work. Can this be done and if so what kind of DVD do I need? I have DVD/VCR player that is probably five or six years old and a large flat screen tv that is 3 years old, if that matters.

Thanks for your help!

  Have you tried hitting the "disc menu" button and see if that brings up a listing of what's on the dvd? That is if it's acting like anything is loading.
Can't say I know a lot of gadget stuff, but I would say it isn't the kind of dvd you have, but if it's written properly. The info that's written on to a dvd or a cd that makes the player recognize it, load the selection, and even with dvd's make it automatically start to play.
Either that part may be missing or isn't recognize due to what you made the dvd with. Or since anything that has "vcr" in it's description is considered obsolete, maybe it won't read anything that's not the same as the data on the a video dvd.
You might also have the option of using the tv as a monitor if you hook it up to your computer.

9/2/2012 2:59:40 PM

  Here's what little I know: It all starts with your DVD player - not all are capable of "reading" photo DVDs. Even if it does, it may require a special type of DVD, photo format (most read only jpegs), and/or a software program such as a slideshow before it will work. Check your instruction manual, or call the manufacturer if possible. Barring that, check a website like manualsonline.com to see if you can find the manual for your DVD player make and model. But until you know that, it's pretty much a waste of time to put your photos on the DVDs.

  83 .  Public reaction to Photoshopped ads
Kind of aiming this question at people who do portraits, be for fun, business, or trying to get started as a business. But would like all comers to join in if they'd like.
If you've heard about the public reaction to ads being photoshopped too much for the sake of people's self esteem, and England going as far as banning some ads, do you think that the enthusiasm for cutting back on the photoshopping of celebrities and models will have the same enthusiasm for not having their own portrait touched up and made more flattering?

8/22/2012 4:06:51 PM

  No..When it's YOU, ya gotta look better than you really do. LOL

8/22/2012 7:01:48 PM

  I agree with Carolyn. When you get serious photos done, an individual most often wants to look as good as possible. After all the photo will capture them at their best presentation hopefully. A little enhancing won't hurt -- a total nose job, on the other hand, would not be representative of the individual.

  84 .  Pocketwizard syncing
I currently have a Pocketwizard Flex TT5 for Canon that I want to use as the transmitter on my hot shoe (30D) with my Speedlite 580EX II on top. I just purchased two Pocketwizard Plus III to use as receivers for remote room lights. I can't seem to get them to sync. Does anyone have suggestions on how to set this up? I'm fairly new to the world of lighting, so be gentle :).

  Hi Gregory,

Well, after e-mailing tech support at Pocket Wizard all day, that wound up being the silly solution :) Sometimes the simplest mistakes are the ones that take all day to figure out!

Thanks for your quick response!

In photo last year, each of my students had to choose one object that they consistently shot in unique ways throughout the year. Every project we did, each technique learned, etc., had to include one turned in pic of their object. (we made books out of these). One of my students chose "things that look like they are smiling." Of course, I now find myself noticing every "smiling" thing!

This was a tower outside of the Space Center in the Smithsonian. To me, it looks like a little girl with pigtails and a smile :)
