Getting Photos from a CD or DVD
When you get photos from a CD, DVD, or other external device, such as a scanner, digital camera, card reader, or mobile phone, Photoshop Elements first copies the photos to a folder on your computer, and then creates a link to the file. When you get photos from a CD or DVD, you can choose to make full- or low-resolution copies of the files. Full-resolution copies are best for editing, while low-resolution are best for previewing photos and saving disk space.
Import Photos from a CD or DVD
- In the Organizer, click the File menu, and then point to Get Photos and Videos.

- Navigate to the CD or DVD drive with the files you want to import into the Organizer.

- Click the Copy Files on Import option to make full-resolution copies of the photos, or click the Generate Previews option to make low-resolution copies of the photos.
