To delete photos for good

1.
Choose Empty Trash from the iPhoto application menu.

iPhoto asks if you really want to remove the pictures (Figure 2.17).

Figure 2.17. iPhoto checks to make sure you really want to delete photos from your hard disk before doing so.


2.
Click OK to delete the photos.

✓ Tips

  • Deleting a photo from a normal album you created does not delete the original image but removes it from that album.

  • The only way to remove a photo from a smart album is to change the photo's criteria so the smart album doesn't see it.

  • Dragging a photo to the Trash icon on the Dock does nothing.

  • Remember, backups are your friends!
