Saving to memory cards

There is probably a very simple answer to this question, and in asking it I may come across as looking a bit stupid....but I am going to ask it anyway!!.

I shoot all my images in raw, processing in capture one and saving as a .tif file, then after minor work in PS I also save a copy as a .jpg file.

I have been asked if I could put a selection of images on to a memory card so that they could be viewed on a digital photo frame, my question is how would I go about transfering my images as .jpg's back from my hard drive to a memory card?

I hope that makes sense and somebody may be able to help me.

Thank you in advance.

Use a card reader, the memory card is treated as just another disk, so you can copy anything you like to it.

Thanks Paul, I had a feeling that would be the case, but just wanted to ask for advice first, thank you for taking the time to read and reply to my question.

Don't forget you can resize them very small so you can get the maximum number of files on to the card. They'll show up OK on the screen of the digital frame. I don't know exactly how small you can go, maybe someone else knows? I sized all my digital frame pics at 300px longest side as far as I can remember.
