    So I downloaded, un-zipped and burned a CD of that edburnerxp 3 in my Win 10 wifi laptop and installed in my Win 98 PC. Installation went without a hitch. Then I selected "burn a data CD or an ISO image file" (the ISO format was explicitly a requirement). Fortunately I had already converted my TIF file into he ISO. Then I loaded the ISO file into the platform and clicked BURN. The burn processed without a hitch (about 2 minutes) and message was displayed: "the CD burned successfully". Clicked Finish and then opened the CD and found ...nothing! I loaded the CD in my laptop and found - rather than the disc being unusable as when they had failed to write in attempts in three other CD burn programs: EasyBurn, Nero 5, and (first attempts) in ImgBurn - the disc was completely write-able in my laptop.
    Further conviction that my final success was against all odds - thanks to a synchronicity orchestrated from a benevolent conscious cyberspace matrix.

    You are still stuck on the idea it needs to be an ISO, it doesn't so I'm going to give up.

    I appreciate your intention to be helpful - but for the record I am neither "obsessed" nor "stuck" but simply sharing the actual pitfalls that have arisen in my journey via various CD burning software. Happily - you can't argue with success!

    Forget the iso conversions or PhotoDeluxe and install Irfanview
    I started using Irfanview in my W98 days ... it should still work there

    I always assume the Operating Systems listed in a software descriptions are explicit and mean it will not work in any not listed. Am I wrong? The current Irfanview lists Operating Systems: Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 10.

    Also - out of the almost 100 file formats listed as supported in the Iranview app - there is only one that is also supported in the ImgBurn - an IMG file - so I suppose I might try uploading a raster file from my Adobe Photo Deluxe and convert it to an IMG file in Irfanview to enter into the ImgBurn platform but that really isn't any easier than the ISO conversion process I've already used successfully.

    Also I don't see that the Irfanview provides some of the critical functions in the AP Deluxe, like cloning which is an essential part of my image manipulations.
