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.

Nisus Writer Pro Restores Classic Features

Send Article to a Friend

Nisus Software has released Nisus Writer Pro, a new word processor based on their earlier product, Nisus Writer Express (which remains available). Nisus Writer Pro adds numerous features that appeared in Nisus Writer Classic but hadn't yet been seen in a native Mac OS X version of the program. Nisus Writer Pro can perform attribute-sensitive find and replace operations (both manually and in macros) and expand glossary entries on the fly (somewhat like Word's AutoCorrect feature). Other newly added (or "restored," if you prefer) features include tables of contents, indexing, cross-references, bookmarks, text wrap around images, widow and orphan control, multi-page footnotes, line numbering, and an expanded macro language.

Nisus Writer Pro costs $79, or $99 for a three-license Family Pack; single upgrades from Nisus Writer Express are $45. (Prices for Nisus Writer Express have been reduced to $45 for single users and $79 for Family Packs.) Nisus Writer Pro is a 103 MB download; a 15-day free trial version is available.
