Removing Photos from Sources

As you work with a source, you may decide that you don't want some of the images in the source. Luckily, they're easy to remove.

Ways to remove photos from sources:

  • Making sure you're in the desired source, select the photos you want to remove and press delete.gif.
  • Select the photos you want to remove, and choose Delete from Album from the Photos menu (cmddelete.gif) or, for albums only, Cut (cmdx.gif) from the Edit menu.
  • For albums only, drag the photos you want to remove to the Trash album.
  • For albums only, control.gif-click one or more selected photos, and then choose Cut or Delete from Album from the contextual menu (Figure 3.33).

  • To remove a photo from a smart album you must either redefine the smart album or change the photo's information such that the photo no longer matches the smart album's criteria.
