Deleting Sources

It's easy to create items in the Source pane, and luckily, if you decide you don't want one cluttering your list, they're even easier to delete.

Ways to delete a source:

  • Select one or more items and press delete.gif.

    iPhoto prompts you to make sure you know what you're doing; click Delete to delete the source (Figure 3.28).
