Publish to Slideshow CD

Publishing to a slideshow CD burns your scrapbook directly to a CD-R/RW or DVD-R/RW so it can be run on a computer. This option is perfect to have as a keepsake, or to give to family or friends as a gift. Simply insert a blank disc and click OK.

When the scrapbook CD/DVD is inserted into a computer drive, the scrapbook slideshow is automatically started. This option is similar to the Publish to Slideshow option and contains a control panel enabling the viewer to either manually navigate your scrapbook, or automatically switch pages based on a timer. The control panel can be accessed while viewing the slideshow by clicking on the page.

Note: If for some reason you encounter problems burning, try a different brand of CD/DVD media. If this does not help, there may be an incompatibility between your drive and Scrapbook MAX!'s burning capability. In this case, you can use the Publish to Slideshow option instead and burn the slideshow using your favorite burning program.

Tip: You can publish the slideshow to a CD-R/RW or DVD/R/RW by choosing File > Publish To > Slideshow CD... from the program menu.
