    Deleting Photos via Collection

    Have tried searching here and in Victoria's Missing FAQ to no avail. Looking for a tip on the steps you use to destructively delete one or more photos you run across via a Collection (from both the Lightroom catalog and the disk -- not just the smart or dumb collection view itself.) My...

    cleaning hard drive

    I have been removing photos from the catalog, thinking that I was also deleting them from the hard drive. I now realise that I was wrong, and wish to delete those photos from the hard drive. How can I identify those photos to delete them (without doing it all manually)?

    what effect does deleting an imported image have on previews?

    I always create 1:1 previews on import. With my last shoot, I had to delete several images and it occurred to me that I don't know what effect that has, if any, on the previews for the deleted images. Anyone know? BobMc

    Deleting photos on mobile device without removing elsewhere

    Trying in vain to figure out how to manage Lightroom Mobile photos on my mobile devices. I’m using the LR camera to take RAW photos and sync to iPad and iMac. My iPad is old so I’d like to free up space and delete LR mobile photos on it. Is it possible to do that and not affect the photos...

It can take 5 to 10 min until I get the window asking me if I want to delete the photo from the disc or just remove it...
