Why do many of my photos wind up in Trash when I did not send them there?  I can get them out with "Select All" and "Put Back", but don't want them going there unless I specifically put them there.

iPhoto '11, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Any chance because it's the same reason your iPhoto ends up in the trash?

    Before we can answer you need to give us information. You might wonder if you could actually give us less to work with.

    The iPhoto Folder on the System Trash was created by iPhoto. When you delete images from iPhoto 11 they go first to the iPhoto trash and thereafter to the System Trash, where they are put into a folder called 'iPhoto'. I have no idea how you get that to Applications.

     

    You're not having your photos "saved in Aperture". Aperture is now managing your Library. But if you're using the latest versions of iPhoto and Aperture then it's the same library. Are these images also visible when you examine the Aperture trash.
