How to ZIP/Compress files on a Mac

On a Mac...

1. Get all of your photos into a single folder

2. Right click on the folder (highlighted in pink). If you are using the default Apple trackpad, TAP down with two fingers. If you are using a mouse (any brand), press CONTROL and right click at the same time.

This menu will appear after you right click

3. Click Compress "FOLDER NAME" on the menu that appears. In this example, I named the folder, "To Zip". Therefore, the menu option is Compress "To Zip"

4. After you press that option, your new zipped folder should show up right below the original folder

 Your new, zipped folder will be right below the selected folder. In this case, the zipped folder is below the pink highlighted row.
