Burning CD's

Posted:
in macOS edited January 2014
I am a newbie to Apple Macs, so please bear with me if this is a stupid question.

When burning a CD with my old Windows XP machine, I could press a key on the keyboard and it would "move" the file instead of "copying" it. Is there anyway this can be done on my Emac?

The reason I ask, is because I burn alot of jpegs to CD, and I read somewhere that when an image is copied it loses some of it's quality. Is this correct??



Thanks!!

    You won't lose quality by copying a JPEG file or burning it to a CD. As with any other file, you will get an EXACT copy.



    JPEG's will loose some quality if you open them up (in Photoshop, for example) and then save them again because you are re-compressing the JPEG.
