Removing Photos from iPhoto

Despite iPhoto's long history, many people continue to be confused about exactly what happens when you delete a photo. There are three possibilities.

If you delete a photo from an album, book, card, calendar, or saved slideshow, the photo is merely removed from that item and remains generally available in your iPhoto library.

If, however, you delete a photo while in Events or Photos view, that act moves the photo to iPhoto's Trash. It's still available, but...

If you then empty iPhoto's Trash, all photos in it will be deleted from the iPhoto library and from your hard disk.

Retrospect 6.1 Gains Full Tiger Compatibility

Send Article to a Friend

Retrospect 6.1 Gains Full Tiger Compatibility -- Although Retrospect 6.0 has worked fine with Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger in general, it doesn't support two of Tiger's new features: access control lists (ACLs) that enable administrators to control who can access and modify files stored on a Mac OS X 10.4 server and extended attributes that will be used by future Mac applications. EMC Dantz has now released Retrospect 6.1 to add support ACLs and extended attributes. Needless to say, most people didn't even notice this omission in Retrospect 6.0, but it's nice to see the update anyway. A similar update for Retrospect Express 6.1 will be available in the future (Retrospect Express users running Tiger should be sure to update to Retrospect Express 6.0.212). The Retrospect 6.1 update is free for Retrospect 6.0 owners; it's a 24 MB download. [ACE]
