    How closely knit is the software...
    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.
