I assume you made a slideshow and turned it into a VCD.
Most slideshow software will produce a VCD image size of 352 x 240, which will not look good on a TV.
Some slideshow software will also produce a VCD image size of 704 x 480 if you do not use transitions. It will limit you to 99 photos per show. But it will look good on a TV.
Some slideshow software will produce SVCD CDs with an image size of 480 x 480 which look OK on a TV screen.
But, most set-top DVD players can not read SVCDs.
Replace you CD burner with a DVD burner (about $50-$100).
Then use slideshow software that will burn DVDs ($70).
DVD slideshow software will produce 720 x 480 images which look good on TV. And they will play on all set-top DVD players.
Sorry if this may seem to be an elementary question, but I am new to this stuff. I am using Photoshop Elements. I transferred my digital photos from CD (drugstore) to my computer. Edited them on 'Elements' and then burned a CD. Played it on my new plasma TV and I am not happy with the quality of the photos. Any suggestions? Type of CD? Burn speed? Anything else?
