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.

Send Article to a Friend

Econ Technologies squashes some bugs for those running OS X 10.9 Mavericks with the release of ChronoSync 4.4.3 and ChronoAgent 1.4.4. Both ChronoSync and ChronoAgent provide fixes for a bug that caused a fatal error if a scanned folder lacked read permissions and a crash when processing temporary files with a leading tilde character. The ChronoSync synchronization/backup app also resolves a problem that occurred when moving files to a target’s archive, fixes several instances of crashes caused when the app attempted to report exceptions, and implements more efficient Unicode filename handling. Full release notes for ChronoSync and ChronoAgent are available. ($40 new for ChronoSync, $10 new for ChronoAgent; free updates; 27.1 MB, 10.6 MB)
