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.

ACTION Files 1.1 Centralizes File Organization

Send Article to a Friend

With its release of ACTION Files 1.1, Power On Software is expanding the edges of what can be done within Open and Save dialog boxes. The well-received utility (see "Get a Piece of the ACTION Files" in TidBITS 434) allows you to access many Finder-level commands from within the traditionally limited dialog boxes. Version 1.1 adds the ability to choose default folders for applications and to assign keyboard shortcuts to commonly used items, plus offers direct support for applications that employ several variations of Save As menu commands. ACTION Files 1.1 also remembers window location settings for each application and improves the display of available free disk space and other information. ACTION Files 1.1 is available through retail outlets for $50; Now Utilities (and, by extension, Super Boomerang) customers can upgrade for $30; owners of version 1.0 can download a free upgrade. A 30-day demonstration version is also available.
