    If your PC has a Windows virus, then it is no danger to your Mac. They run different operating systems so are not susceptible to the same malware.
    As for whether the virus will infect and travel with photos, I don’t know. I suppose it is theoretically possible. But you’d have to ask someone that is an expert on the particular Windows virus that you have.
