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.

We're about to head into the chaotic frenzy that is Macworld Expo. Although the best laid schedules often fall by the wayside, here are a few events in which we're participating, plus a link to the Robert Hess Memorial Party List.

Eudora VQS Book Signing 08-Jan-98 -- In my "Eudora Tips & Tricks" article in TidBITS-405, I promised to be at the Peachpit Press booth at Macworld Expo. The schedule has been set up, and I'll be signing copies of my Eudora Visual QuickStart Guide on Thursday, 08-Jan-98 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM, so stop by and say hello! Tonya and Jeff Carlson will probably be around as well.

1998 Netter's Dinner at Macworld Expo -- If you're interested in attending the 1998 Netter's Dinner at Macworld Expo, visit Jon Pugh's Netter's Dinner Web page for information and a link to the Kagi-based signup form ($16 per person) for the necessary pre-registration. Since Jon isn't able to attend this year, I will be emceeing the dinner and performing the ritual domain survey. At 6:30 PM on Thursday, 08-Jan-98, gather at the top of the escalators inside Moscone on the south side of Howard Street. After everyone has gathered, we'll make the traditional walk to the Hunan (on Sansome and Broadway) in an impressively large crowd.
