    Hello everyone,

    Hopefully this isn't a super silly question but I can't seem to find any answers on the net.

    I have a Canon 400D and recently protected a couple of photos while they were still on the camera. I wanted to delete 50+ photos from the camera so I protected the 3 I wanted to keep and selected delete all to get rid of the rest.

    Then I did a silly thing which was forget they were protected and I uploaded them onto my Macbook. Now I can't get rid of them. If I try and move them into a different folder they copy into the new folder and stay in the old one. They're multiplying! A friend of mine who uses a PC said I should be able to edit the properties but I've had a look around on my Macbook and I cant seem to find anything.

    If anyone knows how I could delete them - please let me know!

    Sara :D
