No "Delete" button in "Image Capture" app.


"Delete" button disappeared from my Image Capture app that I use to import new photos from my iPhone. See the attach.

PS This problem referes only to my specific iPhone only - I connected another iPhone instead of my own - and voila! - button appeared again, but not for my own device!

From your screen shot, I’m wondering if it is a localization problem. I think the delete button is being squished out.

If you don’t have it turned on already, try enabling Full Keyboard Access in the Keyboard system prefs, Shortcuts tab.

When in Image Capture, tab to highlight the buttons. When the Rotate button is highlighted, tab once more, then hit spacebar (if the Import To button isn’t highlighted).

With Full Keyboard Access, you can tab to controls and execute the outlined control by hitting spacebar (the default button--filled in--is activated with Return key as normal).

This is ridiculous though! Why do we have to fiddle with iCloud photo settings for a simple thing such as deleting some photos? I am seriously considering giving up everything Photo related in iOS. Shame as the camera is the only thing that is stopping me from smashing this iPhone 6 to pieces. It's an awful piece of engineering. Deletion is a basic process. I am just baffled. And as you can see - very frustrated.
