Font Reserve 3.1.2 Update Released -- Extensis has released a minor update to Font Reserve, one of the font management utilities in its stable. (Extensis also owns Suitcase, and recently purchased Font Reserve's parent company DiamondSoft; see "Extensis Buys DiamondSoft" in TidBITS-686. You can also find a FAQ about the purchase, and what it means for the future of both products, at the Extensis Web site.) Most notable in the Font Reserve 3.1.2 update is improvement when activating fonts within the Classic environment. Also, a crashing problem with the Font Reserve plug-in for Adobe Illustrator 10 has been fixed. Other unspecified improvements have also been made for the plug-ins for InDesign 2 and QuarkXPress 4 and 5. (For more on Font Reserve, see "Font Reserve Moves to Mac OS X" in TidBITS-620). The update is a free 9.4 MB download. [JLC]
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.
