    Hi Guys
    I've noticed that finder, automatically saves unnecessary spam images and mixes them in with my important images, is there someway of either adding a spam label, to them, so they end up in another folder, or completely stopping the saving process entirely?
    Thanks in advance
    Jack

    What do you mean by automatically saves spam images?

    I don't have anything automatically saved.

    Hi Rjs
    What I mean is, it seems that every image that comes through my system (mail, searches, attachments) seems to end up in the 'all images' section of finder.
    Is there a way to prevent this?
    Thanks
    Jack

    That is just a search that shows every image, no matter where they are. You can remove it.

    Finder > Preferences ...

    Sidebar, uncheck Search All Images.

    Hi RJS
    Would that just stop the search or stop the macbook pro from saving the images.
    The reason I ask is I would prefer if it didn't take up my valuable disk space :D

    Disable the search.

    Nothing will stop it from saving the images, unless you completely disable all caching, and the savings isn't really worth it.

    Hi RJS
    Thanks for your help, I do have one more question...
    When the time comes to delete all those images, what's the best way to do it, keeping in mind it's mixed in with my images?
    Cheers

    You clear the caches of the apps that created them, e.g. Safari, Firefox, etc.
