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.

TidBITS Ranks in Second Best of the Mac Web Survey

TidBITS Ranks in Second Best of the Mac Web Survey -- In the second Best of the Mac Web survey run by the Low End Mac Web site, TidBITS ranked as the 5th best rated site behind As the Apple Turns, VersionTracker, MacFixIt, and MacSurfer's Headline News. That's a significant jump for us from the first survey back in April, in which TidBITS ranked 10th. Significantly more people voted for TidBITS this time around (1,057 versus 694), probably due to our mentioning the survey in last week's issue. The survey is an unabashed popularity contest, but it is useful for learning about Macintosh sites you may not yet have discovered. [ACE]
