Photo Cd/dvd

Question

 

I am trying to back up my photo library (photos) to a dvd. I initially attempted to drag the library direct to Toast. Toast message said the library is in a format not supported by toast. I then tried to select a series of photos in the library and drag them to Toast. They were rejected (just sprang back to original location). I then selected the same photos, dragged to desktop then dragged to toast and they were accepted. Photos are jpg. This double drag method is not practical as I have over 1000 photos in the library. How do I backup my library? I have a macbook pro using OS 10.11.5

I do not have Toast but you need to understand what it is that you are looking for...

 

There are Movie Discs and there are Data Discs.

 

A Movie Disc (playable in a DVD or BD player) consists of movie clips and still pictures (slideshow) added to a project in Toast. Nothing in a Movie Disc is a usable file once it is Authored to disc.

 

You are after a Data Disc which is merely a copy of your files onto an optical disc. Toast touts a Drag, Drop, Burn in its' feature list. I suspect that you need to open that Application first, then do your drag/drop into that app...

 

Check the Toast Menus and Help files to see something about Data Disc. And maybe we will get lucky and some Toast Folks will pile on here and tell us how it's done ;)

 

Edit: should have searched first & typed later... It is in the Toast User Guide, HERE

Yes, I chose data disk and then create a photo cd/dvd. I followed the instructions to a T. Talking to support has been difficult at best. The person doesn't seem to know Toast or MAC OS. Support now connects you to Corel who finally decided that Toast 15 is not compatible with OS 10.11.5 although Roxio website, advertising and the physical box guarantees compatibility. FYI I have used Toast since version 8 and have made photo disks for many years. Thanks for the reply, appreciate it.

I believe that you must export the photos from iPhoto/photos then you can drag/drop into toast. I don't believe you go can drag/drop the photos directly from iPhoto/photos to toast. You might want to do a small test to see.

 

Yes, that works as I stated in my original post. Very cumbersome. Previous Toast editions allowed dragging direct from iPhoto to Toast to create a photo CD/DVD. None of this is mentioned in Toast 15 MAC Edition. Instructions are to just drag photos to the designated area. I suspect photo CD was untouched from previous editions and the problem lies when Apple changed iPhoto to Photos. Really disappointed with Corel customer support, not knowledgeable or helpful at all.
