Photo CD is a proprietary CD-ROM format created by Kodak.
The technology was introduced to provide a cost-effective way to get images from 35 millimetre photographic film to digitised files on a CD-ROM.
The act of creating a Photo CD is a combination of photofinishing and CD authoring. It requires the use of a specialised hardware/software solution that is not part of the standard CD-ROM creation process. Despite what the name may suggest, a Photo CD is not simply any CD with photos on it. By the same token, the act of putting digitised photos onto a CD-ROM does not necessarily result in a Photo CD.
