How Many Photos Will Fit On One Cd?

You say you want your clients to be able to print photos. What size photos? They're definitely bigger than necessary for a 4"x6" print, but if they're going to be printing a 10"x8" or larger, then maybe they're not too big.
Next, what file format are you using? .JPG? If so, then you could conceivably increase the compression some, and make the files smaller, but again, if you blow the picture up large, you'll start to see the compression artifacts. So, it's entirely possible that your 823 photos will need 18 CDs.
As for sending them some place to have them "copied to cds professionally"? They'll wind up doing essentially the same thing you would do on your own PC, and the "easy way to send your photos to them" would be on a CD or DVD. Or are you talking about printing labels on the discs to make them look more professional? There are a number of ink jet printers that let you do that, as long as you're using ink-jet printable discs. Or consider light-scribe.
There... that's probably more information and more questions than you wanted or expected, but the answer(s) depends a lot on exactly what you need and want for your clients. If you have more questions, please feel free to ask!

How to get your CD key "reset" after too many install attempts

Your photo files are quite large, but if you reduce them, you lose quality... I assume they are Printer Quality and reducing them is not an option???
In that case the size is fixed and you just need larger media to place them on.
A 4.7 GB DVD will hold about 6.7 CD's worth of material...
That means it would take about 3 DVD's to copy all them. Those little 'Thumb Drives' in 4, 8 or 16 GB might be an option too??? The 4 GB is almost equal to a DVD
Whatever way you decide to go, it will take some time to get them all onto media.

They are currently 5184x3456 pixels at 230 dpi. Does this sound too big?
Based on the information above, each picture has a dimension of 22.5 inch x 15 inch.

Thank you so very much for your help...you have really helped answer my questions. One more, if I put the photos on a DVD, will it act just like a CD for ordering? If so, I think that is the route I will go. Thanks again for sharing your wisdom with me!
