    Somehow a jpg photo file name appeared under Finder Places. How can I remove it?

    I tried dragging it to the Trash, but it goes right back to Finder Places when I release the mouse button. A right mouse click on the file gives "Open Side Bar Preferences" with no "remove" option. When I right click on the folders under Finder Places, I get a "Remove from Sidebar" option. I searched for the file name, but it doesn't seem to exist anymore.

    Hold down the Command () key while dragging items off the Sidebar if you have Mac OS X 10.6.7.
