    Hi. I have OS X 10.1.3 with the Photos app 1.3 I want to delete two albums that were generated "Bursts" and "selfies". I deleted all the photos from the main library but when I select the albums tab, the photos I want gone are still there. Nothing I do gets rid of them. They are tattooed in the app. I have tried right clicking on a selected album and there is no option to delete. I have tried going to image in the menu bar. At the bottom of that drop down menu I see "delete album" but it is greyed out. Select album and hitting the delete key, nothing. How do I get rid of these albums and photos. They HAVE to go completely and permanently. In fact I want to wipe the entire app 100%. Please help.

    Remember that you need to use Fn + Backspace to trash photos in the Photos app. Then you need to empty the trash bin in the app.
