Making a Photo Disc
This type of disc can be used in either a Macintosh or Windows computer. It allows you to create a multi-purpose photo disc which you can use to perform these tasks:
Archive your original photos—without conversion time or any loss of quality
Automatically generate high-quality slideshows and import into an iPhoto library on any Mac without installing any special software
Easily share photos with Mac or PC users in a standard format that can be used in printing kiosks or by retail photo finishers
