    It would depend on format images are in and the CD player, I would think.
    Suggest learning GIMP and export images into JPG format before burning.
    (Also, why depend on Brasero? Look into wodim if using a deb- or ubu- distro)

    Thanks I do not understand why linux is so difficult in some areas
    dont linux users put their pics on disc

    also gimp is not the easiest programme to learn

    dont get me wrong I love linux but it can get frustrating to a newbie sometimes

    Personally, I never had problems with disk burning. But the thing that separates Linux from Mac/Windows is that everything tends to assume that you have at least have a general idea what you are doing.

    In this point and case, Windows/Mac disk burning probably formats your pictures to a common format that most/all picture-showing devices know.

    I use K3B. But truth be told, I never really made anything beyond a couple boot disks, and a couple of data backups. (I never really found a use for optical disks.)

    Hi kerms

    Thanks for the reply I Solved the problem by inserting a CD-R disc this gave me the option on screen to
    drag the photo file to the disc I then burned and the pics were burned to the disc and now can be played
    through the cd player on tv There are a lot of posts on the web regarding burning and a lot depends on the type
    0f disc age of player etc I think you have to experiment to get it right

    Cheers Sellyoak

    Just for the record, I think everyone missed the one detail that would've solved it all:

    While CD's can typically be played on a DVD player, DVD's can't be played on a CD player.
