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.

System 7.5 & Language Kits

Send Article to a Friend

Despite reports, we have been happily using the Japanese and Chinese Language Kits, as well as Arabic, Cyrillic, and Hebrew with System 7.5. To make them to work for you:

  • Install a clean version of 7.5. That is, don't install it on top of an older system. As a tip, press Command-Shift-K once in the main Installer window. If you choose Install New System Folder, your old one will be renamed Previous System Folder and you'll get a new clean one.

  • Don't install QuickDraw GX.

  • Remove the WorldScript Power Adapter file from the Extensions folder. This should be rev 7.5.1.

  • Install version 1.1 of the Japanese Language Kit (JLK). Then install Chinese Language Kit (CLK) 1.1. These two kits install the older version (7.2.1) of the WorldScript Power Adapter which seems not to cause any problems.

We've done testing so far on the Quadra 650, Centris 650, Quadra 660AV, Quadra 840AV, PowerBook 520c, and the Power Mac 6100. On the 6100, we're not having any difficulties even with the 7.5 release of the Power Adapter.

The 1.0 releases of the CLK and JLK do NOT work with 7.5, but 1.1 works as expected. Apple recommends the 1.1.1 release, but I've been unable to locate those versions and they certainly haven't appeared on any of the developer CDs.
