Burn images to CD using Adobe Bridge.
Adobe Bridge is one of many software applications that make up the Adobe Creative Suite. As the name implies, the program brings together the assets of different Creative Suite applications under a common interface and location. It allows users to find, view and manage project assets, including pictures, illustrations, webpages and file folders. It also offers tagging features and search capabilities. In addition, Adobe Bridge makes it possible for users to burn images to a CD.
1. Insert a blank writable (CD-R) or rewritable (CD-RW) compact disc into your computer’s disc drive. Click the red “X” in the top-right corner of the autoplay box if it appears onscreen.
2. Open Adobe Bridge.
3. Open the folder containing the image files you want to burn to CD, using the Folders panel on the left-hand side of the screen.
4. Select the images you want to burn. To choose more than one image at a time, either drag and highlight a group of files, or press the “Ctrl” button while clicking each file.
5. Right-click on one of the highlighted images. Select “Copy To,” and then click the “Choose Folder” option from the resulting submenu. Locate the drive containing the CD you inserted in Step 1, click its icon once, and click “OK.” Repeat the process until all of the images you want to burn have been copied to the CD.
6. Double-click the “Computer” or “My Computer” icon on your desktop, and then double-click the icon of the disc drive containing your writable or rewritable CD. This is generally the “D:” or “E:” drive.
7. Click “File” in the menu bar at the top of the folder window. If you’re using Windows Vista or Windows 7, select the “Burn to disc” option. In earlier versions of Windows, choose “Write these files to CD.”
8. Give the disc a name when prompted and click “Next.” The images you selected in Adobe Bridge are burned to the CD.
