Deleting photos on drive

Post by Beck123 » Mon May 14, 2018 10:37 am

Hi there - New to XnView. I read through a beginner guide I found on the forum, which helped a bunch. But I still have one question.

I want to use XnView to cull photos I take before importing to Lightroom. I'd like the be able to, in XnView, delete photos in a certain category from the hard drive itself.

Is that possible?

Sure. Maybe that's possible, or maybe there's another way.

I'd like to either be able to filter and delete photos in XnView, and have that also delete the photos where they're stored on the drive, OR be able to filter the photos in Windows Explorer directly via metadata created in XnView and delete in there.

But if there's another method that isn't covered in the above two scenarios that would work, I'd like to know!
