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.

More Palm & Handspring DRAM Updates

Send Article to a Friend

More Palm & Handspring DRAM Updates -- Palm, Inc. and Handspring, Inc. have released updates to the Palm OS that fix a problem caused by faulty DRAM chips in some Palm Vx, IIIc, IIIxe, and Handspring Visor Deluxe handhelds (see "Tests & Fixes for Defective Palm DRAM" in TidBITS-537). The patch released by Palm now operates on Palm IIIxe devices; previously, a fix was available only for the Vx and IIIc models. You'll need the serial number from the back of your device in order to download a testing application and (if your device is affected) the patch. A similar solution exists for owners of the IBM-branded WorkPad c3.

Handspring's Updater V1.0.0 not only provides a solution to the DRAM problem, but also corrects bugs when launching the Calculator application and using a serial cradle when a Springboard modem is installed. Handspring recommends that all Visor and Visor Deluxe owners apply the upgrade. [JLC]
