You select the single photo you want to keep, not the photos to be deleted. Then click the circle in the lower-right corner to mark the photo as selected.

Click Keep Only Selection.The selected photos appear individually in the moment and unselected photos are placed in the Recently Deleted album. The burst no longer appears in the moment or in the Burst album.

When you import a photo burst into Photos, it appears in the imported moment and in the Bursts album. When you open a burst, you can view all the shots in the burst and select your favorites to work with individually.

  1. Double-click the burst in the moment or in the Bursts album in the sidebar.
  2. To select photos from the burst, click the Make a Selection button in the upper-left corner of the photo.
  3. Click each photo that you’d like to save as an individual photo, then click the circle in the lower-right corner to mark the photo as selected.
  4. After selecting the photos you want to work with individually, click Done.

    • Keep the selected photos and delete the others in the burst: Click Keep Only Selection.The selected photos appear individually in the moment and unselected photos are placed in the Recently Deleted album. The burst no longer appears in the moment or in the Burst album.
    • Make the selected photos appear individually and keep all of the photos in the burst: Click Keep Everything.The selected photos appear individually and the photo burst remains unchanged.
