  • Fat Cat Software - PowerPhotos Help - Moving photos instead of copying
    such as PowerPhotos to delete photos from a library so there is no way for PowerPhotos to implement a move feature in this manner This being the case the best way available to perform a move is to copy the album using PowerPhotos then go back and manually delete the photos from the original library This is sligtly tricky since when you select photos in an album and press the delete key it does not delete the photos from your library as a whole it only removes them from the album Deleting the album itself just deletes the album itself and leaves the photos in your library The trick is to select all the photos and hit command delete instead of just delete by itself This will remove the photos from both the library and the album To entirely remove an album of photos from a library Open the library in Photos not in PowerPhotos Select View Albums from the menu bar up top to see your albums Double click the album you just copied to show all the photos contained in the album Press command A to select all the photos in the album Press command delete to remove
