need help getting photos off a cd

Specs: Windows EX, ?

Hello, We had family portraits taken a couple of weeks ago and was given a cd with slideshow proofs. I wanted to print some of these from my photo printer just for fun but apparently they don't allow you to. Is there any way I can get these off the cd. I tried using IrfanView to capture the images but it messed up the resolution. I spent $500.00 on professional photos but I would like to print some for our photo albums and for the kids to put in their albums. Not only that, but the cd expires after a couple of months and I would like to have images on my computer or another cd for future reference. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

why are you trying to capture the pics?
Why not just open the CD and if nothing else, make a folder and then copy and pasted them to your HD?

A really good photo program that is FREE and does a pro job is Picasa 2 by google. D/L that and go crazy editing and printing your pics.

Hopefully my advice will help you...Please post back with your results....thanks

... my guess is that they have deliberately used some weird format and that is why they won't display off the CD (and why screen capture might be necessary).

Having said that, to assist with this post might not be legal.

Check the file extension & google for it. That might tell you the application that it needs to read it

Before posting try google. Backup. Use anti virus software.

slideshow proofs, hmmmm I must have missed that in the origional post.
What you could do is use PrintScrn on the pics you want and then edit them in Paint or any other Pic program you use.

jldaniels79, how about some feedback on these solutions suggested? It would be nice!

I've used PrtScrn etc many times but have to say that one advantage of screen capture programs is that you can put a box around bits you want, capture Windows and so forth. Best definition is when screen size is increased tho (and even then it is limited) - same goes for Print Screen.

MWSnap is a particularly good program. It is the only one I found that would pop pictures in every applicable program I had on board, with no errors or color changes or whatever. There are stacks out there and I about tried them all until I found that one.
