TLA Systems has released DragThing 5.9.7, a small but significant update to its popular application launcher. The most significant change in this release is compatibility with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, which comes in the form of several user-interface tweaks and the correction of a number of Lion-related bugs, three of which could cause crashes. It’s also worth noting that DragThing 5.9.7 now requires Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later. ($29 new, free update, 5.1 MB, release notes)
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.
