    I have over 9000 images. I created folders for specific images. I copy certain images to move to that specific folder. I go back to the image folder, to delete those images I copied & pasted to that specific folder and when doing so it deletes them from that specific folder I copied and pasted them to. Baffled, because if I copy & paste an image, why would it delete them when I delete original image(s) from Image folder? Can anyone help, with this issue and how to correct...

    Are we talking in a specific program, or within the OS?

    Because in the OS you can skip a step. To move files in Finder first press Command+C to copy the selected files, then press Command+Option+V to move the copied files to the current folder. This moves the original to the new location. No need to delete. Also there is the old drag and drop.

    What OS version does that?

    Are you sure it's Copy and not Cut? I thought I read that Cut & Paste capability was added to Finder in Lion or ML.
