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.

Apple Releases Security Update 2005-007 -- Apple Computer today released Security Update 2005-007 for both client and server versions of Mac OS X 10.3.9 Panther and Mac OS X 10.4.2 Tiger. The update includes a number of patches to Apple software (such as Mail, Safari, under-the-hood technologies like the Quartz and CoreFoundation frameworks, and, in Mac OS X Server 10.4.2, the Server Admin tool used to create firewall policies). Apple also patched components of Mac OS X's Unix underpinnings, including OpenSSL, the X11 windowing system, Apache 2, CUPS, Kerberos, and zlib. Apple recommends all Mac users install this update since it addresses several security problems which could, in theory, enable a remote attacker to access data on the computer, create user accounts, execute arbitrary programs, or let URLs bypass Mac OS X's built-in security check when clicked. The update is available from Apple via Software Update and at the first URL below; the download ranges from 13.3 MB to 29.9 MB, depending which version of Mac OS X you need to update. Apple details the changes included in Security Update 2005-007 at the second URL below. [GD]
