Creating a CD for Submission

Last month we shared tips from Art League member John Burgess’s lecture on Photoshop. Today, we dropped in on a brief tutorial on saving images to CD for submission to juried shows. Assistant Gallery Director Megan Fox gave the lesson.

Here’s her walkthrough:

  1. Retrieve images from your hard drive, camera, USB drive, or CD. Save them to your desktop for easy access.
  2. Edit (if necessary) and rename according to submission guidelines. To rename, click on the file name on the desktop to highlight it, then click a second time to edit it. Type the new file name and hit enter.
  3. Save to desktop.
  4. Create a “New Burn Folder” by either control+clicking on the desktop, or using the File menu at the top of the screen in Finder. Select the “New Burn Folder” option from either menu.
  5. Rename your CD if required. You can also name it during the burning process.
  6. Drag and drop the desired files into the burn folder.
  7. Once all the needed files are in the burn folder, insert a blank CD-R.
  8. Open the burn folder by double-clicking. At the top right of the folder, there is a “Burn” button. Click it to begin the burning process.
  9. Let the computer do the rest! Wait for completion confirmation from your computer before ejecting your CD.
