    Hello,
    this unfortunately is not possible, but you could export an image list of the ones you want to use and then, using a 3rd party explorer select the ones you want using the image list in your folder and import them back to RCs new project.

    yes seems like a lot of extra work instead of just deleting the bad images in RC and re-aligning ? any reason we cant do this ?

    Well the information about the images is strongly linked to the whole concept of alignment and the pointcloud also the project files. Making them delete-able could cause quite big issues. If this was simple it would already be there, maybe in the future..

    deleting photos would be a big advantage in some projects. it is mainly about deleting photos that are not yet part of the alignment or a component. especially if you create components for large projects and upload a wrong photo batch and stupidly save the project. the whole work of setting control points seems to be lost then—and that can really cost time. the passive alignment time is more likely to be accepted than the manual work. so yes it definitely makes sense to be able to remove photos from the project. or am i missing some sneaky and simple workaround?

    I see your point dear user, but again there already were multiple conversations about this in our company but it all comes down to this being very hard and risky to do and we would rather prevent such possibility for now. It is hard to explain as it may sound simple, but in this case it is not at all.
