Hey everyone

Well now im considering the upgrade to 10.5, Im also realising the more space the better with logic projects (Man some of these things are huge! )

What i want to know is, how closely knit are the iLife apps, e.g if i delete SOME of them, are others going to completely fail?

For example, I no longer use iDVD or iMovieHD. I dont use iWeb either. Would i be able to delete these apps (thus freeing up some space) without loosing functionality of apps such as iPhoto?

Thanks in advance

Short answer: yes

Long answer: Only the interdependent features will break, such as exporting a video from iMovie to iDVD or making a .Mac web gallery via iPhoto and iWeb. The applications themselves will work just fine.

Thanks for your reply Kash

I dont really use many of the exporting sections of the software. for example iPhoto is only used by me as a nice photo organizing tool. Garageband is only on there since it contains all the loops etc now used in logic. The rest i dont really use now.

Although ive just realised, deleting all the apps i listed in my first post will only gain me around 300/400mb at best... its not really worth it lol

It's only when you delete Garageband that you gain a lot of space - somewhere around 2-4GB.
