A large number of photos that stored on your Mac could mean gigs and gigs of storage space. When your Mac is running out of space, you can use a duplicate photo finder for Mac software to delete photos to get much space. In this article, I will show you how to delete photos on Mac and recover permanently deleted photos.
You can also delete an album that contains many photos. This way will definitely delete all photos that grouped into the album. And the album you deleted will no longer appear in your sidebar.
Deleted photos from albums in Photos are moved to the Recently Deleted album and they remain in there for the number of days shown. You can choose to either restore the deleted photos into your Photos albums or delete them permanently on Mac.
