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.

Nisus XS Rumors

Send Article to a Friend

Mel Martinez reports a rumor that Nisus XS will have table features built in, pending licensing negotiations between Nisus Software and Macreations, publishers of the Tycho table program. Apparently, Nisus XS will have table-editing features, although if the licensing negotiations break down for the Tycho code, the program itself may come bundled with Nisus XS, and the two will communicate via Apple events. With talks about Tycho going, one wonders if Nisus and Macreations might not also be talking about Expressionist, Macreations' equation-editing program. Also being bandied about the Nisus rumor mill is the addition of drag & drop editing as in Microsoft Word.
