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.

Claris bugged by Internet?

Send Article to a Friend

Claris bugged by Internet? -- Ever-vigilant Craig O'Donnell uncovered an obscure bug in several Claris applications that will most likely only bite users of the nets. It seems that ClarisWorks 1.0 and 2.0 and MacWrite Pro 1.0 both fail to correctly print space-delimited tables (like all the ones we put in TidBITS) in monospaced fonts (like Courier and Monaco, which should print aligned) to (at least) the StyleWriter II and to the LaserWriter Select 300. Claris confirmed the problem with the unaligned tables and recommended printing to a LaserWriter, presumably one with PostScript. What a helpful suggestion! (We heard later the unfortunate tech support therapist who made that suggestion was put on a bread and water diet and forced to answer calls about MacPaint 1.0 from users with 128K Macs.)
