Hi, and welcome to JustAnswer! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am excited to get started with you.So I can better assist you, I will need additional information. Normally pictures do not automatically import into iphoto from visited websites unless it was manually imported. If you are deleting the photos and they re-appear, it may be because photo stream is still enabled. How did the photos from the internet get into iphoto?
That's what I"m asking you because I have no idea. I'm very concerned that they are in iPhoto because it can be from my bank, a credit card, a purchase and on and on.
I see it as a big security problem for me.
Are they all in the same folder?
they're all in iphoto
Are you the only person that uses your computer?
I guess they are in pictures. Yes, I am the only one that uses this computer.
Thanks for the additional information. Lets first disable photo stream before deleting the photos again. How many photos are there that need to be deleted?
how do I do that?
Wow. Click on iPhoto in the top menu bar and then choose Preferences
Click on the photo stream tab and uncheck all off the boxes
Once that is disabled. Delete the photos again you can select multiple photos at a time. Once they are deleted. Click on trash in the left column and then choose empty trash which is located in the upper right corner
I finally got it turned off.
Great. Now go ahead and delete the photos again.
When you are done deleting, click on Trash in the left column and then choose empty trash
How are you doing so far?
I deleted many of them and securely emptied the trash. I hope this does it because it had pictures of everything that I had looked at online.
I guess that I'll know if it worked tomorrow. I have to go to bed now.
No problem. Night Night
