Insert the CD and drag the photos off the CD. Open them up in Preview and print.

I appreciate the idea. That had been the first thing I tried but it won't let me drag a photo off of the CD. Hence my question here. Any other ideas? I've tried pausing the slideshow and trying to drag a photo off of it and I've tried it while the CD was playing. Dragging it off "on the fly". It won't let me drag any photo off and won't do anything when I try right clicking either.

You can't drag the photos off if the CD is being used by another application, it has to be from the icon on the desktop.

Try pausing the slideshow and take a screenshot of the desired photo. Command-Shift-4 then size to pic and then save.

Ok...How do you do that? I click on the icon on the desktop and get a window with two files. ONe that says AUDIO_TS and one that says VIDEO_TS.
I try to open audio ts and get a blank window and when I open video ts I get a number of gray boxes that sayVIDEO_TS.BUP or VIDEO_TS.IFO. I get nothing from them. Then there are boxes that looking like a piece of film icon with a play buttion in the middle and labeled video. These have file names like VTS_01_0.VOB or
VTS_02_0.VOB etc. I click on those and apparantly each is a portion of the whole slideshow. (a song with a group of photos) I can't get to those photos either.

So it's a video DVD, not a CD with photos!
Try playing it with DVD Player or VLC, but you will not be able to extract individual photos off it without taking screen shots.
But surely it would be easier to ask the family to just send you the photos?

As I posted before, if you can pause the DVD so the pictures that you want are accessible then while each picture is showing then take a screenshot with Command-Shift 4 then size it to the picture then save it to your desktop. It will save as a png file but it can be converted to a jpg. easily

If I play the CD and then pause the photo I want I CAN Comman-Shift 4, put the cursor in the corner, pull it down to crop the picture and it is saved on the desktop as a png. I put it in Photoshop elements and save it as a jpg.
It works! Thanks to you all. Great help!
