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.

Just two worthwhile links for you this week—news that Apple and Oracle will be collaborating to ensure that Java remains available for Mac OS X and an Apple-acknowledged bug in iOS 4.1 that messes up repeating alarms.

Oracle and Apple Announce OpenJDK Project for Mac OS X -- Those who feared that the days of Java on Mac OS X were over following Apple’s announcement that it was “deprecating” Java on Mac OS X will be heartened by the news that Oracle and Apple are creating the OpenJDK Project. Apple’s press release states that “Java SE 6 will continue to be available from Apple for Mac OS X Snow Leopard and the upcoming release of Mac OS X Lion. Java SE 7 and future versions of Java for Mac OS X will be available from Oracle.”

Reset iOS Clock App Alarms after Daylight Saving Time Change -- There’s a bug in iOS 4.1 that causes repeating alarms in the Clock app to trigger an hour later than they should shortly before and after the daylight saving time change. Apple says the bug is fixed in the forthcoming iOS 4.2, but in the meantime, you can fix your alarms by deselecting all days in the repeat interval, saving, and then resetting the alarms for the days you need them.
