How to delete photos easier.

Aug 27, 2013 8:52 PM

When in Elements Organizer and going through pictures I obviously want to delete some.  When I click the delete button it has the "The following items will be deleted from your catalog.  Also delete selected items from the hard disk"  It is really annoying when this happens every time I want to delete something.  Is there a way to change the settings so that once I press delete it defaults to deleting the image from both the catalog and the hard disk.  Thank.

    No. That is the easiest method.

    It's also a very safe method.

    If you have many files to delete, I recommend assigning a temporary tag like 'to be deleted' to a lot of selected (highlighted) pictures. You can repeat the process several times, and when you are finished with your edits, you select  those tagged pictures and delete them all at once.
