The process of creating an album is quite straightforward and results in a nice way to organize subsets of photographs. They are easily viewed within PSE9 and will readily sync to my iPad. However, when I try to save one to a dvd or to a hard drive I get a very curious result. I get a plethora of files but they aren't viewable in any logical way. I have created a dvd and when I look at the files, explorer shows about 20 mB of files but if I look at the properties of the dvd it shows about 280 mB. I can't seem to just click on anything on the dvd to have the album display and when I put it in the dvd player I get a very strange menu with no good choices for viewing the album.
What I would like would be to use the album function to select the photos that I want to use but I don't need a template or any other enhancement. I would like to keep a set of albums and put them on media players, burn cd/dvd's to give them to friends and post them to Picasa or Facebook.
Like everything else Adobe, this seems obtuse and non-intuitive. Do I have the entire concept wrong?
