I have had my Mac for 3 years, and I am barely scratching the surface of what it can do. It is all fine and well wanting an Ipad, but if you’re not really technically inclined (I don’t mean savvy, I know what I’m doing, but some days I just don’t care enough to find out more) it isn’t worth the money.
It dawned on me today that for every photo of a lovely sunset or a pretty flower I take, there are at least 20 photos which are out of focus and frankly so bad that my 1 year old nephew could do a more convincing job. These photos are taking up precious space on my laptop and need to be deleted. But as I looked for the delete option in my iphoto menu, I discovered that there is no such command. Cue: mass hysterical panic.
So, I did what I always do in times of great stressful need, I trawled the net.
And lo and behold I found a really easy way to do it, courtesy of pinds.com :
If you’re looking at a photo inside an album, tap the delete key to remove the photo from the album (this won’t delete the actual photo). If, however, you’re viewing the photo in the iphoto Library, and you tap the delete key, it is deleted.
Easy as pie, which Macs are designed to be. Maybe I should have more faith in logic next time. P.S. The photo above is one of my better ones (perhaps…)
