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.

Bare Bones Releases BBEdit 7.0 -- One wouldn't expect to make a big deal out of a text editor, yet we've run across people who think the Finder is nothing more than an obstacle to launching BBEdit. Bare Bones Software has updated its flagship application to version 7.0, incorporating a number of improvements such as making it easier to work on files from multiple Web sites, support for editing rectangular regions of text, Quartz text smoothing, a Paste Previous Clipboard command, and more. A full version of BBEdit 7.0 costs $180; owners of BBEdit Lite, Adobe GoLive, or Macromedia Dreamweaver can cross-upgrade for $120. Those upgrading from earlier versions can pay $50 until 31-Dec-02, or $60 after 01-Jan-03 if you're running BBEdit 6.1 or earlier (BBEdit 6.5 owners retain the $50 pricing going into 2003). If you happened to purchase and register BBEdit 6.5 on or after 01-Sep-02, disregard the previous details and expect your free upgrade within the next two to three weeks. [JLC]
