My name is Anders and I’m the CEO of Brattoo Propaganda Software. I hope that you have had a great summer and are ready for some new tips and tricks. In my last email I wrote about backups and protection of valuable data and about various threats. It was not really related to Apple Photos as my emails usually are but it is equally important. Hopefully you are now backing up your data in a safe place. I have received some requests about the opposite to backup, deleting photos, so I’ll tell you a bit about that but also about the upcoming major upgrade of macOS 10.13 High Sierra that comes this autumn.
This newsletter and previous letters
Several of our readers have requested that we resend previous emails so that they could catch up on earlier tips and information. All previous emails are available online in our Newsletter section at https://newsletter.brattoo.com
The free apps section
As I have mentioned in previous letters we have received requests on how to automate some tasks in Apple Photos or tasks related to photos. Those tasks might be tedious to work out manually but are easy for us to solve. The apps include a tool to set the Photos Titles based on filename (with or without file extension), a tool to copy and apply GPS coordinates between photos and finally a utility to set the correct file dates on image files based on the photo date stored in the metadata within the image files. You’ll find all our free apps at https://free.brattoo.com.
Deleting photos in Photos
You might have noticed that when you delete a photo in Apple Photos the photo disappear but the available disk space is not increased. When you delete a photo in Apple Photos either by the key combination Command+Backspace or by the menu option File->delete the image is moved to the Recently Deleted Photos album which can be found in the left sidebar. Photos in The Recently Deleted Photos album will automatically be deleted after 30 days but you can also select them and delete them directly from the album. If you delete them from the Recently Deleted Photos album they will also be deleted from your iCloud library and you will not be able to recover them.
Deleting photos in Albums
This is something I get a lot of questions about. When you copy a photo to an Album it is not duplicated. Albums only contain references to your photos that are located in the Photos album and All Photos album. This means that if you delete a photo individually in an album it will not be deleted from your library. But, if you delete a photo from the Photos album or All Photos album all occurrences of that photo in other albums will also be deleted. Yes, it can be confusing.
Well, this it not completely true. You can delete a photo from an Album and at the same time delete it from your library. To do so simply select the photo you want to delete and delete it with the Command+Backspace key combination. This also works with Smart Albums.
Apple is about to release their next version of macOS, 10.13 High Sierra. With this comes an upgraded version of Apple Photos and I’m happy to say that Duplicate Annihilator is fully compatible will all beta versions of the the Apple Photos released so far to developers. We are monitoring this closely and will of course conduct a full compatibility test as soon as the full version of macOS High Sierra is released.
A follow up on backups
In my last email I told you about backups and the recommended CrashPlan from Code42. Since my last email, Code42 has decided to focus on business and drop the consumer market so, CrashPlan is not really an option any more. Very unfortunate. I still recommend cloud backup due to all the reasons mentioned in my previous email. Here are two good alternatives to CrashPlan: https://www.backblaze.com/ and https://www.idrive.com/. If you ave thoughts or questions about this then let me know, simply by replying to this email.
Finally I would just like to tell you that our upgrade discount for Duplicate Annihilator for Photos is still available. For only $4.95 you can upgrade any old Duplicate Annihilator license to Duplicate Annihilator for Photos and for just one dollar ($1.00) more you can upgrade any old Duplicate Annihilator license to the Duplicate Annihilator Toolbox including a family pack! This means that you get five licenses for you and your family for all versions of Duplicate Annihilator including iPhoto, Aperture, iOS and Photos for only $5.95.

Thank you for your time, I hope that you found this email informative. I have been thinking about adding screenshots to my emails. What do you think I should do? If you have any feedback, suggestions, questions or ideas then please reply to this email. I read all emails and reply to them in person.
