Thanks Jim,I have been playing around with trying to put a photo on,still no luck.I made a DVD for our family members with all the old photos I had.Give me a clue,do I have to resize,,and then where do I share them to.

Yeah-Its a little tricky till you get the hang of it. My pictures come out sideways sometimes and I cant seem to right them. They need to be fairly small ,but sometimes will show up tiny. If you want me to try, click on my name and a dpop down menu will show up. my email or phone number is in my profile.
