    I am cleaning out my HD and after clearing everything out including the photo library I still have 7 gigs of photos ?

    I went so far as to delete iPhoto and it's still showing 7gb of photos.

    What am I doing wrong?

    I use time machine but it backs up to an external HD.

    Thanks for any help.

    Where does it show 7 GB of Photos? In the Storage section of the ABOUT THIS MAC window?

    To find out, where you storage capacity is being used, you can use the following free applications:
    Maybe try a combination of several, if you still can't find the "missing" capacity.

    WOW ,,,... Thank you !!!


    it found 4.8gb of photos/videos .... are you ready .. in iMessage !!!

    Now I deleted all the texts I had as I know they can bog my phone down but for some reason even when deleting these on my computer they remained hidden.

    Good Grief!
