    Seriously but how do we send Photos to trash like the old Photos app? The only workaround i ve found is delete photo->show deleted photos->delete permantly.... but no items go to trash.

    You went through all the steps if you were using the Photos App on your computer.

    Show Recently Deleted = Trash ... Think of it as an iCloud based photos trash can instead of on your computer because all devices have to have access to the same trash can (to remove or restore) as everything is synced.

    Delete All = Emptying the iCloud photos trash can permanently.

    Now local libraries are still handled within the app and do no use the system trash. Just the app trash.

    It wouldn't make sense to delete and empty the trash to just have it go to a second trash can that you would have to empty again.
