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.

TidBITS 2007 Holiday Hiatus

Send Article to a Friend

It seems that every year ends with a mad rush to finish as much as possible before the holidays kick in, but this year was truly extreme for Tonya and me. Along with redesigning the TidBITS Web site in August, we published 23 new and updated ebooks since the beginning of September, and I somehow managed to find the time to write "iPhoto '08: Visual QuickStart Guide" in November as well. I can't remember anything that happened before August.

We could never have accomplished even a fraction of this without the immensely capable assistance of Jeff, Glenn, Joe, Matt, and Mark; the many Take Control authors and editors; the savvy techs at digital.forest, our Internet host. We're also indebted to the knowledgeable authors who contributed articles throughout the year, our selfless volunteer translators, our corporate sponsors, all the people who make TidBITS Talk vibrant, and everyone who makes time to read what we write. Thank you, one and all, and may all your holiday wishes come true.

Although the pace of both will undoubtedly slow, we'll continue posting articles to the TidBITS Web site, and we'll keep moderating messages through to TidBITS Talk as well. The next email issue of TidBITS will appear 07-Jan-08, and the week after that, we'll be in San Francisco for the annual Macworld Expo excitement.
