    I’m using “Apple Fotos” but due to comming from Aperture I do not import images into Fotos library
    (Fotos/settings/import is disabled).
    There is an action in Fotos (and Nitro) to delete an image,
    but this ONLY works with images which have been imported into the library.
    Otherwise only the reference in the library is deleted, not the imagefile itself.
    => is it possible to add an “delete physically” to also delete images physically from disk which are referenced (not imported)

    I am using Apple’s PhotoKit which is the library Apple provides to interact with the Photo Library. When I delete an image, I am asking Photos to delete it (because Photos has to update the library and such). If Photos does not actually delete the image, there is nothing I can do about it. Sorry. I will guess that they don’t delete referenced files because they don’t know if those images are shared by other apps.
