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.

Take Control News/14-May-07

Learn All About Your Apple TV -- Whether you're an early adopter of the Apple TV or still considering adding one to your home entertainment system, we have a new ebook for you. Our friends at Macworld (many of whom also write for Take Control) have been working with the Apple TV since the day it was released, and they've brought together everything they've learned about it in the "Macworld Apple TV Superguide," the latest in Macworld's series of electronic books.

Inside, you'll find help setting up the Apple TV, navigating its interface, and managing your media - video, music, and photos - for easy access on the Apple TV. Should anything go wrong, an extensive troubleshooting section covers common problems and solutions. After a while, you may find the Apple TV's 40 GB hard disk limiting, at which point you can refer to the ebook's step-by-step, illustrated instructions for replacing the disk with a larger one.

There's even a very short section on choosing an HDTV, if you don't already have one, but honestly, if you're in the market for such a TV, read Clark Humphrey's "Take Control of Digital TV" for a much more in-depth discussion of what all the jargon means and how to choose the best set for your needs. As incentive, we're offering $5 off if you buy both ebooks together.
