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.

Continuing to refine its Open and Save dialog enhancement utility, St. Clair Software has released Default Folder X 4.6.2 with fixes for a few bugs and compatibility issues. The update corrects a timing bug that caused intermittent failures when rebounding and switching to your default folder, fixes a bug that selected a file when an app asked to choose a folder, reduces the load on the graphics processor during the app’s window animations and transitions, and fixes a compatibility issue with FileMaker Pro 13. ($34.95 new, $10 off for TidBITS members, free update, 11.2 MB, release notes)

Comments about Default Folder X 4.6.2

There’s a bug with 4.6.2 on 10.6.8 (I know, I’ll upgrade someday). Default Folder does not recognize any open finder windows except the desktop. It remembers recent folders, but you lose the ability to mouse over a hidden window and select it.

There was a problem with the initial build of v4.6.2, but that was replaced with a corrected copy shortly afterwards. If you're running Mac OS 10.6 or 10.7 and downloaded a copy of 4.6.2 early Tuesday morning, you may have gotten the bad build. Just download a new copy and install it to fix the problem.

I apologize for the goof.

That did the trick. Productivity will be back to normal levels today - albeit Monday morning levels, but tomorrow will be awesome.

Thanks, again. It's so nice to have DF working again. It's been enhancing my open/save boxes since System 7, I think.
